WASHINGTON (AP) – House Speaker Paul Ryan is unveiling the third installment of his “agenda project,” a sweeping promise to roll back regulations on energy and the environment, labor issues and the financial services industry.
The plan commissioned by a task force named by Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, is largely a repackaging of GOP agenda items that have failed to advance through the Senate and often been met with veto threats by President Barack Obama.
Tuesday’s release is the third of a half-dozen reports that are designed to form a positive GOP agenda for the fall campaign. But House Republicans are struggling to be heard above the din created by presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.
The plan takes aim at regulations on global warming and the 2010 overhaul of financial regulation, among others.
