Rep. Bob Goodlatte needs to reverse his support of SOPA


Many websites are “going dark” today in order to raise awareness of Congress’s Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). With any huge bill there is good stuff and bad and the same can be said of SOPA. But the road to [tyranny] is paved with good intentions. What really has people upset and is pitting Silicon Valley against Hollywood are provisions that allow big business to shut down websites that allegedly are linking to or promoting pirated material. If a film studio believes their movie is being pirated they can have an internet company or a search engine block the site. This is a ...


Goodlatte comments on House passage of bill intended to...


... prevent abuse of eminent domain Congressman Bob Goodlatte issued a news release this week after the House of Representatives passed HR 1433, a bill that would withhold federal economic development funds for two years to any locality or state that uses eminent domain to take land for a private entity. You might recall some legal and political scuffling over this in Roanoke a couple of years ago. Interestingly, the state no longer allows this type of action — and in fact the General Assembly had already passed that bill when the motion to condemn was filed. Indeed, the motion was ...

STOPPING UNCONSTITUTIONAL EXECUTIVE ACTIONS ON IMMIGRATION
It’s fitting that one of the first actions taken by the House of Representatives this year was a reading of the United States Constitution. As Members from both sides of the aisle read sections of our governing document, it was a reminder of the carefully balanced separation of powers outlined by our Founders. President Obama has embarked on some of the biggest executive power grabs in American history by unilaterally rewriting our nation’s immigration laws. These actions ignore the will of the American people, threaten the separation of powers between Congress and the Executive branch, and violate the President’s obligation to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.   In response to these unconstitutional actions, the House approved the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations bill this week, which funds enforcement of our immigration laws and processing of visa applications. As Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, I worked closely w
LOOKING AHEAD TO THE 114TH CONGRESS
As the House of Representatives and the Senate kick off the 114th Congress, there are many opportunities ahead for the new Congress to work together on behalf of the American people. In recent years, many House-passed jobs bills have run into the Washington version of quicksand known as the United States Senate. Fortunately, in November the American people delivered a clear message to Washington. They are more interested in results than the latest filibuster. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House as well as incoming Majority Leader McConnell in the Senate to see important legislation moved through Congress this year.  While we have made small strides in cutting federal spending, much more must be done to get the United States’ fiscal house in order. The $18 trillion dollar national debt threatens to bankrupt future generations and further stall the already sluggish economy. Additional measures to cut federal spending and reduce the deficit will be re
REMOVING BUREAUCRACY FROM THE EDUCATION EQUATION
Why does federal bureaucracy need a bigger role in higher education? This is the question many of us are asking as the Obama Administration continues to propose policies that further government intrusion into our education system. Ensuring the opportunity for a quality education is important to America’s future. However, we have seen that more federal government in education means more ineffective policies that ultimately lack critical flexibility and decision-making power needed by individual states, schools, educators, parents, and students.    One of these troubling policies is the Department of Education’s plan to develop a ratings system for colleges and universities. While the system is set to be enacted prior to the start of the 2015 school year, details about this plan that would potentially tie financial aid to an institution’s rating are lacking. Students choose their schools for a variety of reasons like fields of study available, family tradi
STARTING WITH JOBS
The House of Representatives kicked off the 114th Congress this week, eager to work with the new majority in the Senate and take action on several jobs bills. The House is focused on solutions to the problems faced by the American people – solutions that spur job creation and lay the groundwork for a stronger, more vibrant economy. That focus was reinforced by the legislation approved this week. The three bills highlighted below all passed the House with bipartisan support, and would encourage job creation and hiring in a variety of sectors and help small businesses continue to grow without being restrained by federal mandates. The Keystone XL Pipeline Act would approve the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. This long-awaited project would support over 42,000 jobs and provide access to North American energy sources. Keystone XL has received broad support. After six years of waiting and 10 votes in the House to approve construction, it’s time to make thi
