McHenry Introduces Two Bills Increasing Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs
Recently, Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (R, NC-10), the Vice Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee introduced two bills: H.R. 4854, the Supporting America’s Innovators Act of 2016 and H.R. 4855, the Fix Crowdfunding Act. These bills update our securities laws to allow for more Americans to invest in startups, and fix the problems with the SEC’s finalized rule of Title III of the JOBS Act for investment crowdfunding. “America’s economic growth is predicated on entrepreneurs accessing capital, building their businesses, and creating jobs.

McHenry Bill Forces EPA to Drop Racing Regulation
Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (R, NC-10), who introduced the RPM Act to combat EPA overreach into amateur racing, released the following statement after the EPA withdrew its proposed regulation of amateur racers: “The EPA’s attempt to regulate amateur racers is misguided and unnecessary. Not only is racing a beloved pastime for countless Americans, it also employs millions including many here in western North Carolina. While it's positive to see the EPA react to my legislation, the need for Congressional action on the RPM Act remains. Passing the RPM Act into law is the only way to ensure this ill-advised, job-killing regulation is stopped for good.”  BACKGROUND: On March 8th Congressman McHenry joined with Congressman Richard Hudson (R, NC-08) to introduce H.R. 4715 the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2016 or "RPM Act" which blocks attempts by the EPA to regulate modified motor vehicles used for racing. On March 15th, Congressman McHenry joined
