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 ...

SCHOOL LUNCHES THAT KIDS WILL EAT
Heavy-handed federal regulations have seeped into nearly every aspect of American life, including the school lunch line. Just a few days ago, I had the opportunity to visit with food service staff at Elkton Middle School and enjoy a good lunch with 7th graders. These folks take pride in the food they prepare and enjoy serving students. They are not opposed to nutritional requirements, but as more federal regulations are passed down the line it has become increasingly difficult to prepare food that complies with federal requirements and that students will actually eat. At a visit to Waynesboro High School a few months ago, the concerns were similar.   Child nutrition programs are vitally important. A growing child cannot learn very well when he or she is hungry. The school lunch program helps ensure our nation’s children are fed and able to reach their full potential in the classroom. However, instead of providing local school administrators and school nutrition professio
TAX REFORMS ARE THE FOUNDATION OF AN OPPORTUNITY ECONOMY
Tax Day has come and gone, but the aggravation and frustration of tax season is still fresh in many minds. It’s during this particularly “taxing” time of year that hard working Americans are confronted with piles of forms, confusing instructions, and the prospect of turning more of their hard-earned money over to the government. Anyone who has filed taxes knows that the current tax code is overly complex and unfair. If America is to remain competitive in the global economy and build an economy ripe with opportunity here at home, the current tax system must be reformed.       Part of reforming the tax system is having an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that works on behalf of taxpayers, not against them. The IRS political targeting scandal did little to build trust and confidence in the agency. As part of a continued effort to hold the IRS accountable to the American taxpayers, the House of Representatives recently passed several bipartisan
SMALL BUSINESSES HAVE A LARGE IMPACT ON LOCAL ECONOMIES
Driving through the Sixth Congressional District is a lesson in the role small businesses play in shaping and growing our communities. Whether it’s a hardware store that’s been around for generations, an assisted living facility that prides itself on quality care, or a tech startup paving the way forward, small businesses are instrumental in driving local economies and providing jobs for our family members, neighbors, and friends. In fact, half of America’s workforce in the private sector is employed by small businesses.  As we mark Small Business Week, it is important that we applaud the men and women who are behind them. Small business owners are no strangers to sacrifice. They sacrifice their time by putting in long hours, and, in some cases, their own pay to ensure that employees receive a pay check. A recent report found that 67 percent of small business owners would delay or reduce their own compensation in order to make ends meet.  As any smal
RESTORING TRUST IN FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES
Every day, thousands of federal law enforcement agents are hard at work, doing their part to keep Americans safe and delivering them the justice they deserve. I have the utmost respect and appreciation for the dedicated law enforcement professionals who protect and serve our communities.   Unfortunately, over the past few years a series of scandals and failures have rocked the Secret Service, ranging from the agents’ use of prostitutes while on official presidential travel to Colombia, to the agency’s failure to initially apprehend a fence-jumper who later was arrested deep into the White House residence, to a recent incident where two agents allegedly drove while intoxicated into an active bomb investigation outside of the White House. Just a few weeks ago, it was also revealed that Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents had engaged with prostitutes paid for by drug cartels while in Colombia.  This past week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crim
