The EPA is out of control. Because of this, I have introduced The Stopping EPA Overreach Act of 2015. This bill would remove the ability of the EPA to regulate so-called “greenhouse gasses,” an authority the EPA assumed after Massachusetts v. EPA, a controversial 5-4 Supreme Court decision handed down in 2007 which interpreted the Clean Air Act to allow regulations of common and necessary compounds that were not contemplated when the act was originally passed.

November 18, 2015 Press Release
For Immediate Release Washington D.C. – Today, Congressman Gary Palmer (R-AL), supported H.R. 1737, Reforming CFPB Indirect Auto Financing Guidance Act. This bill would revoke the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) 2013 auto lending guidance bulletin, which has hampered the availability of indirect auto loans (loans facilitated by car dealers), particularly to the most vulnerable. Using a flawed model that bases decisions on what loans are authorized using nothing more than last names and zip codes, CFPB’s enforcement has led to rising costs for consumers. The bill was supported by a wide, bipartisan majority.

For our founding fathers, life was the first right. They understood that there is an order to things that even nature teaches us. They understood and fully embraced that the first and foremost right is life, because without life, there is no liberty. Without life, there is no pursuit of happiness. Without life, there is no discussion of a right to privacy or a right to choose, because without life, there is nothing to choose. Life presupposes and precedes all other rights. That is why the right to life is fundamental to everything I believe.
