The Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law is a vital component of the Judiciary Committee’s legislative agenda. The legislation coming out of this committee has broad implications for the entire nation and especially within the 10th District. Farmers, small business owners, energy producers, community banks and emerging technology industries all suffer from duplicative or onerous regulation. Reforms are needed. Marino's colleagues work diligently to maintain and ensure the legislation coming out of this committee will benefit every American and streamline an overly invasive regulatory structure. Congressman Marino also serves on the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet.
