Womack Votes to Support America’s Producers, Stop Burdensome EPA Regulations
Washington, DC— July 19, 2023…Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) supported the FY24 Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill, which passed out of the House Appropriations Committee today. This legislation prioritizes funding for public safety, critical operations, and maintenance programs while reducing spending for low priority programs.
Congressman Womack said, “The Interior Appropriations bill prioritizes America’s energy production while clawing back job-killing regulations by the EPA. Blatant overreach is typical of this Administration’s agenda, so I’m pleased this bill repeals the flawed WOTUS rule and halts permitting requirements for livestock emissions. Our small businesses and farmers are the backbone of America. Policies need to help—not harm—their ability to feed and fuel our nation.”
