Since being sworn in to the U.S. House of Representatives in January 2011, Robert has made job creation, support of small business and reduced government spending his top priority. One such piece of legislation is the DUST Act. This bill stops the EPA from penalizing farmers from generating, you guessed it – Dust. As is often the case with unelected bureaucrats, Washington actually was moving to penalize farmers who generated dust. They wanted to regulate it and fine already struggling family farms. Robert’s bill stopped this federal over-reach of power.
