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 ...

HONORING A MAN OF INTEGRITY
It is often said that our actions in difficult situations are true indicators of character.  That holds true for former Sixth District Congressman M. Caldwell Butler.  He is remembered for many things, but none more than his service on the House Judiciary Committee at a difficult time in our nation’s history.  He was a strong voice and a sharp legal mind on the Committee and acted with integrity during the Watergate investigation and impeachment proceedings, which ended with the resignation of former President Richard Nixon.  I knew Congressman Butler to be a man of great integrity and intellect with a keen sense of right and wrong and a true respect for the law of the land. Caldwell Butler passed away on July 29 at age 89.  He was a Roanoke native and attended Roanoke public schools, received his undergraduate degree at the University of Richmond, and his law degree from the University of Virginia.  He was a veteran of the United States Navy, ha
HOUSE ACTS TO CURB BORDER CRISIS
Over the last month, the flow of Central Americans attempting to enter the United States along the southern border has not stopped.  Young children and teenagers, as well as their family members and other adults, continue to arrive on American soil in violation of the law.  In fact, 85 percent of those apprehended illegally crossing our borders now are not unaccompanied minors.  Since our immigration laws are so loosely enforced by the Obama Administration, they come here believing that they will be able to stay.  Although President Obama already has many tools at his disposal to stop this surge at the border, he refuses to use them and instead proposes to make the situation worse by taking more unilateral actions to stop the enforcement of our immigration laws. Since the Obama Administration has refused to take the actions needed to curb illegal immigration at our border, the House of Representatives acted last week to provide law enforcement agents on the grou
A PRO-CONSUMER, PRO-COMPETITION POLICY
Have you ever wanted to switch wireless carriers, but keep the same phone? Or have you purchased a used phone recently and planned to activate it on a different wireless network?  It seems like common sense to me.  Consumers who have completed their phone contracts or have purchased a used phone should be able to activate their device on their network of choice.  However, if you’ve tried to do that in the last year, you know that this simple action is no longer allowed under current law.  But, that’s about to change.  Just a few weeks ago, the United States House of Representatives and Senate both unanimously passed the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act, which I introduced last year. And President Obama recently signed this legislation into law.   This pro-consumer, bipartisan legislation restores the ability of consumers to more easily transfer their cell phones to other wireless carriers.  Consumers are still
A CONSTITUTIONAL SOLUTION TO AMERICA'S PERPETUAL DEBT PROBLEM
March 2, 1995, was a pivotal day in the history of our country.  On that day, the U.S. Senate failed by one vote to pass a balanced budget amendment to the United States Constitution.  The amendment had passed the House of Representatives by the required two-thirds majority and the Senate vote was the last legislative hurdle before being sent to the states for ratification. If Congress had listened to the American people and sent that amendment to the states for ratification, they likely would have approved it and we would not be facing the debt crisis we are today.  Balancing the federal budget would be the norm, instead of the exception over the past 20 years, and we would have nothing like the annual deficits and skyrocketing debt we currently face. In 1995, when the balanced budget amendment came within one vote of passing, the gross federal debt stood at $4.9 trillion; today it stands at over $17.5 trillion. What is particularly troubling is that today&rsq
