House Republicans Hit Record Prodcutivity In Work With Trump Administration
WASHINGTON—House Republicans, including Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference Doug Collins (R-Ga.), have passed more bills than under any of the previous four administrations during the same time period. Similarly, President Trump has signed more bills into law—37 since January—than any of the four previous presidents at the same point in their administrations. Collins released the following statement in response to these reports, provided by Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy:
“This year in Washington has been remarkably productive. We have an active president who is eager to work with lawmakers, and the House remains motivated to enact the conservative reforms the American people elected us to champion.
“Although Senate Republicans face unprecedented obstructionism from across the aisle, our unified government has still managed to pass laws that reduce regulatory burdens, support our veterans, and whittle down bureaucracy. I look forward to continuing to work with this administration and my colleagues to replace big government with common sense.”
