5 Ways to Participate in U.S. Senators Lankford & Heitkamp's #CutRedTape Initiative

U.S. Senators James Lankford (R-OK) & Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) launched a new, first of its kind, bipartisan grassroots initiative for American families & businesses to voice their stories about how federal regulations impact them on a daily basis so they can figure out ways to cut red tape.

  1. Federal regulations make sure the food we eat is safe, protect small businesses from fraud, promote innovation, and help keep our economy running. But the federal government is big, and there are good programs that can get caught up in unnecessary red tape. Senators Lankford and Heitkamp's #CutRedTape Initiative creates the first central location where every day Americans can write in to tell their stories about how federal regulations impact them. And they need to hear from you. They will then use your stories to help make needed reforms so the federal government works better for families and businesses.
