Congressman Hanna visits Rofin Manufacturing, talks Regulatory Time-Out bill

By WKTV News

CLARK MILLS, N.Y. (WKTV) - One year ago, Representative Richard Hanna was elected to congress, and he marked that anniversary on Tuesday back in his district to discuss a bill he's introduced that he hopes will help small businesses grow.

Hanna toured Rofin Manufacturing in Clark Mills, a company that produces custom heat exchanges for Siemen Energy. Hanna is touting new legislation that he's introduced called the "Regulatory Time-Out" bill. The bill temporarily prohibits the adoption of any new regulation that would cost Americans more than a $100,000,000.

Congressman Hanna says it's an attempt to help small businesses keep up with the demands of ever-changing regulations.

"In a community like ours, it's unlikely that we will find those 500 to 1,000 new employers, but we can grow on what we have and that's what we have here - a great business that's family-owned, stable, been here a long time, wants to stay here and these are the people we should be helping first," Congressman Hanna said.

Rofin employs 18 people.

Hanna also toured the Indium Corporation in Utica on Tuesday afternoon.
