From The Daily Review:

In July of 2013, U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, PA-10, introduced the Responsibly and Professionally Invigorating Development (RAPID) Act as a way to reform and expedite the approval and completion of critical energy and infrastructure projects. On Friday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH-08) unveiled the Pillars of a Renewed Majority document which outlines a road map consisting of five pillars designed to grow our economy, create jobs and increase opportunity for upcoming generations of Americans.

Speaker Boehner featured Congressman Marino’s RAPID Act as part of that road map in which one of the five pillars calls for reform to our regulatory system. Congressman Marino has remained keen on reforming the regulatory structures of the federal government since arriving to the House of Representatives.

Congressman Marino issued the following statement about Boehner’s plan and the inclusion of the RAPID Act within it:

“I am deeply appreciative and encouraged by Speaker Boehner’s inclusion of my RAPID Act within his 5 Pillars. He and I hear from folks in our respective districts just how stifling the federal government’s regulatory system has become, especially for small businesses and entrepreneurs. Ultimately costs of overkill regulation are passed on to consumers and one glaring example is the energy sector,” said Marino.
