  • A broad coalition of free-market and center-right organizations are respectfully requesting that Scott Pruitt, Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), reform the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) mandate.  The previous Administration’s corporatist policies ushered in an unprecedented age of hyper-lobbying that promoted partial and partisan interests—saving Wall Street bankers, a failed stimulus package, an auto bailout for union control, the Obamacare fiasco, green energy boondoggles. President Trump promised to grow the economy by doing away with Obama-era cronyism. Reforming the badly broken RFS system and will show that the President is serious about putting America back to work.  Read the Coalition letter here: COALITION Seeks to Reform the federal Renewable Fuel Standard  October 6, 2017
  • “We and the millions of Americans who support our organizations are deeply concerned that Senator Elizabeth Warren’s “Over the Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2017” is a bait-and-switch piece of legislation that will impose burdensome regulations, resulting in limited choice and higher prices for consumers. We are concerned that the House will allow a version of this legislation to be attached to the non-controversial Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) legislation.Senator Warren’s legislation is misleading. Her proposal will increase regulation, pre-empt states, raise prices, and limit choice. It’s a solution looking for a problem. Physicians, healthcare professionals, patients, and consumers all lose under the Warren bill. We encourage Congress to oppose it at every turn.” Read the Coalition letter HERE: Coalition Opposes Sen Warren’s crony Hearing Aid Bill_it’s bad for doctors, patients, and consumers May 2017
  • The Financial CHOICE Act is a market-based, common sense reform proposal that will peel back the most onerous Dodd-Frank regulatory layers. The legislation begins with a conservative consensus of eliminating the most damaging provisions of Dodd-Frank, explicitly reforming the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and repealing the Durbin AmendmentCoalition Letter in Support of The Financial CHOICE Act of 2017 May 2017
  • Maryland consumers need more choices when it comes to their drugs, not fewer. HB 631 will drive those choices out of the marketplace, doing a disservice to Marylanders by limiting their options and driving pharmaceutical prices up and is therefore bad public policy:  Coalition Letter Opposed to Maryland House Bill 631 April 2017
