WASHINGTON– U.S. Reps. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) and Gene Green (D-TX) have introduced a bill that supports manufacturing jobs and skilled labor in the U.S. automotive industry. The Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act of 2015 (H.R. 2675) protects low volume car manufacturers from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) one-size-fits-all method for regulating automakers. The law would only apply to companies that manufacture “replica” cars, which are vehicles that resemble a car produced over 25 years ago.
WASHINGTON– The U.S. House of Representatives passed two bills to stop the deeply-flawed proposed rule defining Waters of the United States under the Clean Water Act.
Both measures were supported by Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02), a vocal critic of the Obama administration’s efforts to expand federal jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act and further extend the reach of federal regulators into peoples’ everyday lives, their businesses and onto their land.
