House Republicans Looking to Attack Labor Regs to Spur Hiring

The House Republican agenda this fall will focus on repealing environmental and labor regulations that GOP lawmakers say are driving up the cost of doing business and discouraging employers from hiring new workers.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., says in a memo to his fellow Republicans that as soon as Congress returns to Washington next week he will start bringing up bills to repeal or restrict federal regulations. He also said the House would also act on a small business tax deduction.

The memo was released Monday.

    i cant see how they can undo any regulations that have been put in place since deregulation in 1980………. in every, ( perish the thought) industry……… first regulation to get tossed out…………………….a permit for a child to have a lemonade stand. after all, how else would they get candy money to keep hsy in bus.
