Rep. Davis nets committee assignments

U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Taylorville) has received his subcommittee assignments for the 113th Congress, which includes a leadership post as the Vice Chairman of the Subcommittee on Aviation.

“Both my committee and subcommittee assignments are perfect fits for the 13th District, a district heavy with agriculture and transportation,” said Davis. “While there will be a lot of work to do in these committees, including the passage of a long-term Farm Bill and Transportation Bill, I’m confident that the results from our work will have a tremendously positive impact for our area, the state and the country.”

For the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure, Davis will serve as the Vice Chairman for the Subcommittee on Aviation as well as a member on the Subcommittees on Highways & Transit and Water Resources & Environment. The committee is chaired by U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pa.)

“I’m excited that Rodney has been named to the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure Committee. I know his background and experience will have positive impacts on our work,” said Chairman Shuster. “I look forward to working with him on the Committee and in his leadership role as the Vice Chairman of the Subcommittee on Aviation.”

For the House Committee on Agriculture, Davis will serve as a member on the Subcommittees on General Farm Commodities & Risk Management and Horticulture, Research, Biotechnology, & Foreign Agriculture. The committee is chaired by U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas (R-Okla.)

“I’m pleased that Congressman Davis will be serving on two of our subcommittees during this Congress,” said Chairman Frank Lucas (OK-3). “Our subcommittees play an important role in the legislative and oversight process.  I know he will be a valuable member as we address the important issues facing production agriculture and rural America.”

Co-sponsor of REINS
Davis has also signed on as an original co-sponsor of the Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, in the U.S. House.

“The REINS Act is a commonsense piece of legislation that asks the regulators and Congress to slow down and consider all the consequences of a new rule prior to letting it take effect,” said Davis. “Regulations and rules are stifling our small business community and the REINS Act is a small step in restoring some sanity to federal government to show that we want to work with the business community and not against it.”

A recent survey from Harris Interactive and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce found that 86 percent of small businesses believe that regulations, rules, and taxes will negatively impact their ability to operate and that 88 percent of small businesses are looking for more certainty, opposed to more assistance from Washington.

The REINS Act was originally introduced by former U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis (R-Ky.) in the 112th Congress and would require any rule or regulation with an economic impact of $100 million or more―already scored and identified by the White House’s Office of Management and Budget as a ‘major regulation’―come before Congress for an up-or-down vote before taking effect.

Congress and the President have 70 legislative days to approve a joint resolution of approval.  If Congress and the President do not act within that time period, the regulation is deemed to be not approved.  

The REINS Act passed the House overwhelmingly in the 112th Congress, but never received a hearing in the Senate.
