As part of the Plan for Americas Job Creators, the House has passed more than a dozen bills to protect American jobs from the threat of excessive government regulations and pave the way for the private sector to put hundreds of thousands of Americans back to work. Senate Democrats have blocked the majority of these bills despite the fact that the unemployment rate has been stuck above eight percent for 32 months. Heres a look at the impact some of these House-passed bills could have on jobs and the economy if Senate Democrats would allow them to come to a vote:
■1.4 Million Jobs: In April, the House passed the Energy Tax Prevention Act (H.R. 910) to prevent the Administration from imposing a backdoor national energy tax that will drive up gasoline prices and put as many as 1.4 million American jobs at risk, according to the House Energy & Commerce Committee.
■At Least 100,000 to 200,000 Jobs: The House passed a resolution (H.J.Res. 37) prohibiting the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from pursuing a government takeover of the Internet that a New York Law School Advanced Communications Law & Policy Institute study says would have devastating impacts, costing the U.S. economy at least 100,000 to 200,000 jobs per year over the next five years.
■1,000 South Carolina Jobs: The Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act (H.R. 2587), passed by the House last month, will help rein in unaccountable National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) bureaucrats that are attempting to stop Boeing from creating what the company says would be 1,000 new jobs in South Carolina. The bill will not only protect jobs in South Carolina, but will also prevent the NLRB from dictating where companies can or cannot create jobs in the United States a policy that would have a chilling effect on job creation.
■More Than 15,000 Jobs: In a letter to the White House last month, Reps. Steve Chabot (R-OH) and Geoff Davis (R-KY) urged President Obama to support the Cement Sector Regulatory Relief Act (H.R 2681) to stop excessive regulations on the cement industry that the Energy & Commerce Committee says could force up to 20 percent of the nations plants to shut down. In the letter, Reps. Davis and Chabot cited a study conducted by experts at Southern Methodist University that found that:[S]hould 10 percent of the domestic industry disappear, the direct, indirect and induced job losses would exceed 15,000. And this figure doesnt include possible job losses in the huge construction sector that might occur in the face of higher concrete prices.
■224,000 Jobs: Last week, the House passed legislation (H.R. 2250) that would stop burdensome new regulations impacting thousands of job creators that use boilers including hospitals, factories, and even colleges. These regulations would impose billions of dollars in new costs and put 224,000 jobs at risk, according to the Council of Industrial Boiler Owners.
■As Many As 316,000 Jobs: The bipartisan, House-passed Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act stops excessive regulations on energy producers and gives states the power to implement regulations for coal ash that balance the need to protect both jobs and the environment. According to the National Association of Manufacturers, the bill will protect as many as 316,000 jobs.
