WASHINGTON – On Thursday, Rep. Michelle Fischbach (MN-07) introduced the STOP the GRINCH Act to ease supply-chain and inflation pressures by streamlining or suspending certain federal regulations on ports, ships, and trucks. Empty shelves and backlogged ports have wreaked havoc on American businesses and families over recent months. Inflation is at a 30-year high making holiday purchases and everyday necessities harder for Minnesota families to buy.

The STOP the GRINCH Act would ease supply-chain tensions, targeting specific needs in ports, shipping, and trucking. 

“President Biden and Speaker Pelosi think the answer to the supply chain crisis is more wasteful spending and more heavy regulation. They are wrong, and with the holiday season upon us we can’t risk making this crisis worse,” said Rep. Fischbach, “The STOP the GRINCH Act will alleviate the backlog at our ports, at a time when the American people need it most.”

The lead sponsor of the bill in the Senate, Sen. Lee said, “The supply chain crisis is making Thanksgiving meals, Christmas gifts, and everyday necessities more expensive and harder to get. My STOP the GRINCH Act will help ease supply chain difficulties and get holiday products off of ships, onto trucks, and into stores. We can STOP the GRINCH and save Christmas.”
