Luetkemeyer Highlights Telephone Support Program


With an increasing number of servicemembers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-9) is urging spouses of those coming home to take advantage of a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) telephone support program designed to ease the transition for returning troops and their families. “This telephone support program is an invaluable resource for our military families and veterans during the transition from service overseas to life back here at home,” Luetkemeyer said. “I urge folks to take advantage of this program as a way to deal with the ...


Simplify the Tax Code Begs Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer


Throughout my time in Congress, I have worked aggressively to provide more certainty to American taxpayers by supporting tax policies that foster economic growth. Our tax code is too complicated, too cumbersome, and stands in the way of job growth. To address the long-term economic issues facing our nation, I believe our tax code should be flatter, fairer and simpler. It would be irresponsible to raise taxes on hard-working Americans, especially during a time of great economic uncertainty and high levels of unemployment. Under a lower tax burden, Americans would have a greater incentive to ...


Rep. Luetkemeyer sought fast track for visa program


In July, as the Mamtek project in Moberly was on the brink of collapse, U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer met with a top immigration official to push along the company’s application for an investor visa program. When the meeting took place, there were no outward signs of trouble. Construction was still under way, and plans were being made for the time when some of the promised 600 factory jobs would be filled. On July 14 in Washington, D.C., Luetkemeyer, a Republican from St. Elizabeth, met with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Deputy Director Lori Scialabba to get the EB-5 ...

Luetkemeyer Holds Legislative Hearing on Regulatory Reform and SIFI Legislation
U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) issued the following statement upon conclusion of the Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee hearing entitled “Legislative Proposals for a More Efficient Federal Financial Regulatory Regime.” “The legislation discussed in the Subcommittee today will better allow financial companies to serve their customers,” Luetkemeyer said. “From banks and credit unions to attorneys, we’ve seen an impeded ability for businesses across the nation to offer financial services and guidance. In order to preserve consumer choice and financial independence, Congress must tackle regulatory reform and simplify rules. The policies outlined in today’s  legislation start to break down those barriers.” Included in the hearing was H.R. 3312, Luetkemeyer’s bipartisan Systemic Risk Designation Improvement Act. This legislation aims to improve the manner in which financial institutions are regulated by more closely tying the safeguards in
Blaine's Bulletin: A Visit from the President
Now that children are back in school and August is officially over, we are now looking ahead to what will undoubtedly be a busy fall here in Missouri and in Washington. Throughout the last few weeks of traveling around the 3rd District and visiting with people at roundtables, meetings, events, or on my recent telephone town hall, it is been made loud and clear to me that Missourians desperately want comprehensive tax reform. So, it was fitting that President Trump traveled to Missouri this week to discuss his vision for America’s tax system. I was incredibly encouraged by the President’s speech and I know the 3rd District agrees. We must lower our nation’s corporate tax rate and make the tax code for individuals and families simpler, flatter, and fairer. To illustrate just how complex the tax code is, since 2001 the tax code has been changed roughly 6,000 times. That’s more the once a day. How are we as citizens supposed to keep up with that? How are our businesses supposed t
Blaine's Bulletin: This Week's Committee Work
Some of the most important work I conduct in Washington is in the two committees on which I serve. It is in these committees where ideas become legislation and where that legislation is fine-tuned before it goes to the full House of Representatives for consideration. I am honored to serve as the Chairman on the Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee on the House Financial Services Committee. Equally as important, I also serve, for the second term, as Vice Chair of the House Small Business Committee. Recently, the House Small Business Committee convened a hearing entitled “How Streamlining Federal Permitting Can Cut Red Tape for Small Businesses.” As many of you know, before a business can begin a construction project it is required to obtain a myriad of permits from the federal government. The federal permitting system is a complex and costly regulatory network, particularly in the construction industry. The National Environmental Policy Act, Clean Air Act, Clea
Blaine's Bulletin: An End to Operation Choke Point
For several years, I have discussed an Obama Administration program called Operation Choke Point in this bulletin. Today, I am incredibly pleased to report that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has informed me that this program will come to an end once and for all. You may recall that Operation Choke Point was an attempt by the former administration, specifically the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the DOJ, to intimidate financial institutions from offering services to certain licensed, legally-operating industries the Obama Administration did not ideologically like in an attempt to choke off those industries from our country’s banking system and run them out of business. After learning of this unprecedented program, I sprang into action. The last four years, I have sent letters to and held meetings with FDIC and DOJ officials, engaged in conversations with other federal financial regulators and my colleagues in Congress, introduced legislation to end the program,
