Furthermore, I was pleased to see Section 5 of this legislation, concerning the Government Accountability Office (GAO) conducting a study on rules, is my exact language that passed last Congress in committee markup and then on the House floor. Now, I look forward to seeing both my language within the bill as well as my amendment reach President Trump’s desk to receive his signature.”
