U.S. Rep. Candice Miller says Michigan citizens are "getting fleeced" by the National Flood Insurance Program. She is proposing the program not be reauthorized, but replaced and privatized.
The U.S. House of Representatives has delayed a vote on a bill that would extend the National Flood Insurance Program for another 30 days. Some 20,000 communities across the U.S. participate in the NFIP by adopting floodplain management ordinances to reduce future flood damage. In exchange, the NFIP makes federally-backed flood insurance available to homeowners, renters, and business owners in these communities, according to the Federal Emergency Management Association. The NFIP is scheduled to expire at the end of May unless both houses of Congress reauthorize it. U.S. Rep. Candice Miller (District 10) made the following remarks Wednesday on the floor of the House in opposition to continued reauthorization of NFIP: What in the world is …

The Interest Rate Reduction Act would freeze a scheduled rate increase on federal student loans but cut preventative health care programs to offset the freeze's cost.
U.S. Rep. Candice Miller (MI-10) supported the passage of a bill Friday that would prevent a scheduled interest rate increase on federal student loans by cutting a preventative health care program. Miller was one of 215 House representatives to support the Interest Rate Reduction Act, which would preserve the rate on subsidized Stafford loans to undergraduate students by cutting the Prevention and Public Health Fund created in President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, according to The Huffington Post. The interest rates are scheduled to increase to 6.8 percent on July 1, but IRRA would extend lower rates for an additional year. Under a 2007 statute, the 6.8 percent rates were phased down to 3.4 percent, but were set to return to their …

U.S. Rep. Candice Miller (R-10) led 14 of her Michigan colleagues this week in raising concerns to House and Senate Armed Services Committees regarding proposed cuts to the Air National Guard under the Air Force's 2013 budget.

"Michigan’s entire U.S. House delegation is unified against these cuts to the Air National Guard and will continue our efforts to turn them back.” Led by Miller, Michigan's 15 U.S. representatives signed a letter this week …

Dairy farmers in Michigan and across the country will benefit from a local representatives persistence and the president's recent action to eliminate unnecessary regulations restricting business growth.
If there is one issue in the president’s 2012 State of the Union address that will receive immediate bipartisan support, ridding the nation of unnecessary regulations is it. “There's no question that some regulations are outdated, unnecessary, or too costly,” said President Barack Obama on Tuesday. “In fact, I've approved fewer regulations in the first three years of my presidency than my Republican predecessor did in his. I've ordered every federal agency to eliminate rules that don't make sense.” The “spilled milk” rule, introduced earlier for elimination by Republican U.S. Rep. Candice Miller (M-10), was one of these “unnecessary” regulations cited by the president during his address. “We got rid of one rule from 40 years ago that could…

U.S. Rep. Candice Miller is voicing neither opposition nor support at this time for a presidential request to raise the debt ceiling again–such a request is expected from the White House this week.
As Congress waits for President Barack Obama to officially ask for an additional $1.2 trillion in borrowing authority, which would raise the federal debt ceiling to $16.4 trillion, Macomb's U.S. Rep. Candice Miller is saying, "These levels of deficits and debt cannot continue." “How distressing that the president is once again requesting to raise the nation’s debt ceiling," Miller, (R-10), said in a prepared statement Dec. 28. "Fortunately, because of the consistency of the House Republicans’ commitment to restoring fiscal discipline, at least we saw the debate in 2011 change from how much more to spend to how much we can begin to cut." Per the budget agreement reached in August, the president's request can only be blocked if Congress …
