Rep. Smith Votes Against Funding Executive Amnesty

Rep. Smith Introduces EPA Transparency Legislation

February 26, 2015

‘The time has come for costly federal regulations to stop being written behind closed doors.’

Rep. Lamar Smith along with Senator John Barraso (R-Wyo) this week introduced legislation requiring the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to make public the data they use to formulate their often-burdensome regulations. The Secret Science Reform Act will shed light on the EPA’s regulatory process, and require the massive agency to let the American people know what data they are using to justify their regulations. The legislation passed on a bipartisan vote during the 113th Congress but was killed in the democrat-controlled Senate.

Rep. Smith Welcomes Court Order to Halt Obama's Executive Actions on Immigration

February 17, 2015

'The president himself said he can’t do what he attempted to with his executive orders.'

Congressman Lamar Smith on a Texas federal judge's court injunction to temporarily block President Obama’s executive actions on immigration:

"I'm glad that a court is putting a temporary halt to the president’s executive amnesty orders. The president himself, a former constitutional law professor, has said 22 times he can’t do what he attempted with his executive orders. The courts will continue to play a key role in this debate as 26 states move forward with a Texas-led lawsuit against the president’s executive actions.

“The House has taken action to restore our rule of law and the American people’s trust in their representative government. Senate Democrats must stop playing politics with the Constitution and stop blocking House legislation that would put an end to the president’s unlawful actions.”
