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 ...

REINING IN RED TAPE
It should be common sense. The more federal regulations that put the squeeze on small businesses and job creators, the greater the negative impact is on economies throughout the nation. Nevertheless, the regulations and red tape continue to stream down from the federal government.  Under the Obama Administration, on average, 82 major rules – those with economic impacts of $100 million or more – have been filed each year. Plus, federal regulations cost the U.S. economy an estimated $1.88 trillion in 2014. That adds up to nearly $15,000 per American household.  Many of America’s job creators are stuck under mountains of endlessly growing, bureaucratic red tape.  I’ve heard time and again from businesses in the Sixth District, as well as others that have testified before the Judiciary Committee, that uncertainty about the cost of pending regulations discourages employers from hiring new employees and expanding their businesses. In fact, 72
A COUNTRY OF OPPORTUNITY
Easing the burden on families, moving real reforms to help job creators, ensuring access to quality veterans care, protecting civil liberties, investing in North American energy production, fighting to end human trafficking – the House of Representatives has been working hard to deliver solutions that help create an economy of opportunity. Here is an update on our progress:  The House has passed numerous bills to promote free enterprise and economic growth. Bills like the Regulatory Accountability Act, which I introduced, help address escalating regulatory costs. The House also approved legislation to provide tax relief for families and businesses by repealing the death tax. Ensuring our veterans receive the quality care they deserve is critically important. The VA Accountability Act, which passed just a few weeks ago, makes it easier to hold Department of Veterans Affairs officials accountable, and if necessary, fire them if they are not effectively serving our veterans
HOUSE ADVANCES SECRET SERVICE REFORMS
Restoring the trust that the American people must have in the vital tasks that the Secret Service carries out every day is critical. The Secret Service has two primary missions: criminal investigations and protection of the President, Vice-President, and other dignitaries. As a result, the agency is entrusted with protecting some of our most valuable assets as a nation. This is an extremely difficult, high-profile mission, for which there is no margin for error.   The Secret Service is comprised of many upstanding men and women who do excellent work. However, over the last few years a series of embarrassing scandals, security failures, and instances of poor judgment have rocked the agency. Following these incidents, President Obama appointed a new Director of the Secret Service, Joseph Clancy, and also appointed a panel of experts to recommend changes to the Secret Service. Director Clancy has implemented a number of reforms and has pledged to make necessary improvements at th
PROTECTING THOSE WHO SERVE
Serving in the line of danger is not foreign to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. They bravely serve throughout the globe, facing threats each and every day. But when acts of horrific violence happen here at home against our men and women in uniform, it is a stark reminder that the threats they face are ever-present and have no clear boundaries.  On July 16th, an armed shooter attacked a Marine Corps recruiting center and U.S. Naval Reserve Center in Chattanooga, killing five service members. My heart and prayers go out to the victims and their families as well as the entire military community. This attack demonstrates that domestic terrorism is a real, ongoing threat with lethal consequences. It also raises serious concerns regarding current Department of Defense policy that restricts most of our military personnel from carrying firearms while on duty within the United States.  Our service members have vowed to defend and protect our nation and the
