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 ...

PROTECTING SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS
The United States Constitution is not a document of suggestions for how the U.S. should be governed. It’s not a “choose your own adventure” novel where you can pick which portion to follow and ignore the rest. The Constitution is the framework for our entire system of government and provides for the protection of our rights and liberties as Americans. Actions by the Executive Branch to unilaterally change our laws are in direct contradiction with the separation of powers outlined by the Constitution.  Unfortunately, President Obama recently attempted to use his pen and phone to stretch his authority to implement more policies that Congress has refused to enact, this time to deprive Americans of their Second Amendment rights. Sadly, we’ve seen this before from the President regarding our immigration and drug laws as well as Obamacare changes. Under the Administration’s command, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) made
STANDING WITH ISRAEL
The United States and Israel share a strong bond. Since Israel declared its independence in 1948, the U.S. has developed a positive relationship with Israel based on shared democratic values and common security interests. Israel has proven to be a valuable American ally since.  As the news headlines report each day, the situation in the Middle East is exceedingly complex and instability continues to pose a threat to the security of the entire global community. With enhanced security threats from Iran, escalating violence in Syria, and the Palestinian government’s alliance with the terrorist group Hamas, the safety of the democratic and free State of Israel is at great risk – with American interests at risk with it. Just a few days ago, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress. While controversy encircled Prime Minister Netanyahu’s invitation to address Congress, it was an important message that all Members of Congres
A BALANCED BUDGET FOR A STRONGER AMERICA
An opportunity economy starts with a budget that leads to balance. The House of Representatives sent a strong message just a few days ago that a balanced budget is a top priority. We all know the status quo is not working anymore. That’s why I voted in support of a budget plan that will help build a stronger America by balancing the budget, making real efforts to reduce the deficit, and repealing Obamacare in full.  The House passed budget is definitely not the status quo. Unlike the President’s budget, which would never balance, this budget leads to balance and holds the federal government accountable to the taxpayers. It focuses on strengthening Medicare for seniors and provides for the safety of our nation by making defense a priority. It also embraces the policies I have put forth on tax reform and encourages passage of a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  As I have done in the past, I also cast my vote for the tightest, most fiscally
ENFORCEMENT COMES FIRST
There are many issues plaguing our nation’s immigration system, but the biggest problem is that immigration laws are not enforced. While presidents of both parties have not fully enforced our immigration laws, President Obama has made several moves to unilaterally gut them altogether. In order to protect against this, it is essential that any immigration reform start with enforcement. Over the last several weeks, the House Judiciary Committee, which I chair, has approved four bills focused on enforcement of the law. These bills would strengthen the interior enforcement of our immigration laws, remove the ability of the President to unilaterally shut down immigration enforcement, ensure jobs are preserved for American citizens and legal workers, reform the United States’ asylum laws, and make sure unaccompanied alien minors who make the dangerous trek to the U.S. are safely returned home. The Legal Workforce Act (H.R. 1147) requires all U.S. employers to use E-Verify
