Rep. Grijalva’s Statement on House Republican Majority Regressive Rules Package

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) issued the following statement:

“Republicans preached a return to ‘regular order’ while Kevin McCarthy cut back room deals with the far right to secure the Speaker’s gavel. Now, we will vote on a rules package that lays the groundwork for a dysfunctional Republican majority intent on stripping freedoms away from Americans.”

“Today’s package includes rules to jam through legislation to give tax breaks to Republican’s wealthy and corporate donors; attack women’s reproductive rights; create a drilling free-for-all for Big Oil; and establish committees steeped in McCarthyism, none of which have gone through regular order.”

“Arizonans and the rest of the country are tired of the Trump-era and want responsible governance that will address issues like cost of living, affordable housing and the climate crisis. Americans want a government that works for them, not one where Republicans hold the country hostage to force cuts to vital programs like Social Security and Medicare.”
