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 ...

SANCTUARY CITY POLICIES ENDANGER COMMUNITIES
“No.” Unfortunately, that is what many “sanctuary cities” have told the federal government regarding the enforcement of our immigration laws. These sanctuary cities needlessly endanger American lives by adopting public policies refusing to cooperate with the federal government to enforce immigration laws. And the federal government does nothing to stop them.  Sanctuary cities have been a frequent topic in recent days as a result of the tragic shooting of Kate Steinle in San Francisco. The man charged with her murder is an unlawful immigrant who had previously been deported from the United States five times. Although he was detained earlier this year by San Francisco police on drug charges, he was later released by city officials because it is a sanctuary jurisdiction. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Sarah Saldana testified before the House Judiciary Committee earlier this year that there are over 200 jurisdictions that don’t
KEEPING INTERNET ACCESS TAX-FREE
The clock is ticking down on a key law that protects Internet freedom. On October 1, 2015, a temporary moratorium on state taxation of Internet access will expire.    In 1998, Congress temporarily banned state and local governments from newly taxing Internet access. This ban has since been extended five times with enormous bipartisan support. If the moratorium is not renewed or made permanent, the potential tax burden on consumers could be substantial. To make matters worse, this tax is regressive: as a share of income, low income households pay ten times as much in communications taxes as high income households. For most families and businesses, the last thing they want to see is a puzzling array of new taxes on their Internet service bills. The Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act is a simple fix. This bipartisan legislation, which I introduced, would make the ban on Internet access taxes permanent. Earlier this month, it cleared the first hurdle by easily passing the
A MAJORITY OF AMERICANS SUPPORT SCRAPPING THE TAX CODE
Three out of four Americans say the current federal tax code is unfair. While this number is the result of a recent survey by the nonprofit group Let Freedom Ring, you only have to try wading through the depths of the tax code yourself to come to the same conclusion. The tax code is inherently unfair, inefficient, and mind-numbingly complex at times.   Everyone has ideas for how to reform our tax code, but unless we have a mechanism that forces Congress to actually debate and instate a new tax system we are left with the status quo. The public overwhelmingly agrees – 85 percent of those surveyed agreed that something must be done to force Congress to act.     That’s where a bill I introduced earlier this year would come in handy by providing the mechanism needed to spur action. The Tax Code Termination Act (H.R. 27) accomplishes two goals. It abolishes the Internal Revenue Code by December 31, 2019, and calls on Congress to approve a new federal tax s
A CELEBRATION OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY
In a letter to his wife in 1776, John Adams predicted that great anniversary celebrations marked with “pomp and parade” would take place each year on the Second of July, the day the Continental Congress voted to declare independence from Britain. While he was right about the celebrations of freedom that have taken place for well over two hundred years, the date we all know is the Fourth of July – the date the Declaration of Independence was formally adopted by the Congress.  When our Founding Fathers signed their names to the Declaration of Independence, they could not have known how this experiment in self-government would unfold. What they were confident of, however, is that liberty is an inherent, God-given right, not one granted by any form of government.  This liberty is something that we continue to fiercely protect today. Just a few weeks ago, I was proud to help usher critical legislation, the USA Freedom Act, through Congress to protect our
