July 14, 2015 Press Release
Tough economic sanctions worked and brought Iran to the negotiating table. Congress now has a critical role reviewing the terms of the agreement. Based on reports, it is alarming to hear that restrictions on weapons and ballistic missiles will be lifted in the near future, and Iran's nuclear program is being further enabled through increased technology. Iran sponsors terrorism around the world and should be prohibited from receiving arms or obtaining a nuclear weapon. This agreement makes permanent concessions to Iran with only temporary benefits in return and the deal falls short of the need for Iran to meet concrete, verifiable standards.

The 21st Century Cures Act cuts the time it takes for cures to get from the lab to the patients who need them, and it will continue America's international leadership in medical innovation and research, a growing field that employs more than 6 million Americans.

Congress has oversight of the EPA and has heard from environmental experts and farmers that the water rule is confusing. The unintended consequences of this rule could be very costly to local communities in Michigan. I look forward to working with Administrator McCarthy on making sure Michigan farmers, businesses and towns will be able to operate without interference from the EPA.

The Student Success Act eliminates more than 65 ineffective government programs, putting more money for students into the classroom. The legislation also prohibits the federal government from coercing states into adopting Common Core. As a former charter school administrator and the parent of school-aged children, I believe it is important to protect the rights of parents to decide how to best educate their children.

Today, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of all Americans who are frustrated with the EPA and its overzealous pursuit of expansive rules that exceed its authority. The EPA has been trying to implement regulations that would dramatically increase the price of electricity for families and ratepayers throughout Michigan. Thankfully, the Supreme Court ruled for the American people.

Today’s ruling fails to protect Americans from President Obama’s broken health care law. Premium increases are already expected next year, and more Americans are paying higher deductibles that take hard-earned money straight out of their pockets. I will continue to fight for patient-centered alternatives that let individuals choose the coverage they want and drive down the cost of health insurance.

With this oversight and transparency bill, Congress and the public will see what the administration has been negotiating. Congress will continue to have the final say on trade deals made by the president. If the Administration makes a bad deal that doesn't benefit farmers, manufacturers and hardworking men and women, Congress can vote against the agreement and stop it from becoming law.

This is an unnecessary intrusion by the federal government. Already, many companies are removing trans fats from their products and Americans are making common-sense, healthy choices about what they eat. Americans should be trusted to make the food choices that are best for them and their family. They don’t need Washington bureaucrats telling them what they can and cannot eat.
