Washington, DC – January 11, 2017 – The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) applauds the passage of H.R. 5, the Regulatory Accountability Act by the U.S. House of Representatives. This legislative package contains six regulatory reform bills including H.R. 33, the Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act. H.R. 33 is identical to the version of the Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act that passed the House in the 114th Congress by a bipartisan vote of 260-163.
“NARI strongly supports regulatory reform efforts and H.R. 33 in particular,” said NARI CEO Fred Ulreich. “Remodelers across the country are impacted by overly burdensome regulations on a daily basis. We appreciate the leadership of Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) as they work to remove unnecessary regulatory barriers that stifle business growth and job creation, as well as giving small businesses a more powerful voice in the regulatory development process. NARI calls on the U.S. Senate to take up and approve similar legislation as soon as possible,” Ulreich said.
