WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Committee on Rules, released the following statement applauding the passage of H.R. 469, the Sunshine for Regulations and Regulatory Decrees and Settlements Act of 2017:
"As the proud Co-Chairman of the Article I Task Force and a fierce defender of the Constitution, I proudly supported today’s measure to restore Congress’ Article I Authority. Over the past eight years we have seen the Executive Branch tip the scales of power and today we have taken a step to recalibrate those scales and restore the balance of powers outlined in our Constitution. Our Constitution serves as the foundation of our freedom and democracy. If we want to build upon the success of the past and ensure our country has an enduring and prosperous future, we must preserve our rule of law and uphold the values and the principles prescribed by our Founding Fathers."
