PLYMOUTH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Two Republican congressmen are planning to hold a hearing in Michigan on government regulations they say are impeding the state’s economic growth.

The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday in Plymouth Township between Detroit and Ann Arbor. It’s being held by the U.S. House Oversight & Government Reform Committee’s panel on government operations.

Topics will include proposed regulations dramatically limiting workplace exposure to silica dust, plans to regulate many of the country’s streams and wetlands, and an attempt to streamline the process in which workers decide whether to join labor unions.

Republican Reps. John Mica of Ohio and Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan are expected to participate in the hearing, says a conservative advocacy group.
