In a statement published on Posey’s U.S. Congressional website, Posey stressed the need for greater scrutiny of major reform legislation.

“The first step in holding government accountable is making it more transparent,”Posey said. “You can do that by reading the legislation before it becomes law. My experience has been that these ‘too big to read’ bills are loaded with wasteful spending and loopholes that grow the size of government and limit freedoms of law-abiding citizens.”
