In our most recent Indiana Chamber Policy Call with Congressman Todd Rokita, the subject of the medical device tax came up. No surprise. It’s been a topic in countless conversations ever since the terrible idea was first broached in 2010.
Congressman Todd Rokita recently paid a visit to Kokomo in order to get his “marching orders” from citizens before returning to Congress.
The House passed the legislation on a voice vote in September; the Senate approved it by a 88-1 vote on Tuesday; and Obama, surrounded by Republican and Democratic lawmakers, signed it on Wednesday.
Representative Todd Rokita is again leading the charge to stand up for Hoosier Farmers. Today, the Congressman called on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to abandon its “Navigable Waterways” rule, which could potentially allow the agency to regulate Hoosiers’ puddles and front yards.
“Hoosiers, concerned about Ebola, as well as misleading information from the Administration, expect quicker action,” said Rokita. “I support a ban on flights from infected countries, visa suspensions, as well as stronger screenings at our ports of entry, including airports and border crossings.”
U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita visited the police department here on Wednesday to learn more about local government and what they do for the community.
Rokita said that the FAA could direct its focus to more important matters and there could be more, safer pilots. Rokita said that he and other lawmakers will keep the pressure up on the rulemaking process, but noted that even if the FAA proposed rules aren’t what pilots want, the legislative effort continues.
HAF’s Associate Director of Government Relations, Jay Kansara, liaised with community leaders and other major Indian American organizations to enable an unprecedented 33 Members of Congress and Governor Nikki Randhawa Haley to both attend the event as well as participate in a private meeting with the Prime Minister organized by the Embassy of India.*
“School Choice is an important foundation supporting our Hoosier and national economy,” said Rokita. “As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education, I’m helping to make sure every student makes his or her unique contribution.”
Rokita met with nine of the company's employees to talk about issues related to Red Tape Rollback, a program he said thrives on receiving feedback from constituents regarding what they feel are examples of excessive regulation so that his office can work to address them.
