Rokita touts Red Tape Rollback success

Government is overreaching.

That’s the message of Indiana Congressman Todd Rokita.

The fourth district U.S representative is pushing for less government regulation.

He started an effort last year called operation Red Tape Rollback and says the first twelve months have resulted in 18 successes.

Rokita says successes are defined by stopping, delaying, or writing a bill to halt regulations, but does not necessarily mean there was a change to a law.

He says he received more than 70 requests from businesses and individuals to scale back some government laws since the initiative started.

He plans to work on the ones where no changes were made throughout the next year.
