|Last week, the Energy & Power Subcommitee heard testimony on my legislation called the EPS Improvement Act of 2016. This bipartisan legislation will exclude specific lighting technologies from the Department of Energy’s (DOE) external power supply rule. The regulation this legislation seeks to correct would have otherwise stifled innovation and injected uncertainty into the manufacturing sector.
Without Congressional action, and passage of my legislation, this rule will unintentionally threaten thousands of jobs. Click here to learn more about this pro-manufacturing legislation or here to see a video of my testimony from this hearing.
Also this week, I joined my colleagues from the North Carolina delegation including Congressmen McHenry and Pittenger in a wager over who will win the Panthers vs. Cardinals game on Sunday. Scroll down to see what food items are at stake!
