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 ...

CONFRONTING THE ISIL THREAT
The United States is a symbol of liberty across the globe. We enjoy freedoms like no other nation in the world, and we must remain ever vigilant against threats from aggressive terrorist groups that would seek to destroy our very way of life, harm our citizens at home and abroad, or attack our allies.  The rapid expansion of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) not only poses a serious threat to a region that is no stranger to turmoil, but also to every nation, including the United States, that rejects their brutality and extreme ideology. A CIA assessment estimates that ISIL has between 20,000 to more than 30,000 fighters in Iraq and Syria, including many American citizens. In recent months, ISIL has carved a path of terror, taking control of a growing territory and killing innocent civilians. They have even launched an aggressive social media campaign to spread their vitriol and recruit radicals to join their ranks. Like all Americans, I was appalled by the recent
PROTECTING THE NATION AGAINST TERRORIST THREATS
Protecting the American people from threats against the nation is the highest priority of the federal government. However, in direct contrast to this goal, the Obama Administration recently approved a final regulation to lift a 30-year prohibition on Libyans coming to the U.S. to attend flight school, to work in aviation maintenance or flight operations, or to study or seek training in nuclear science. Once Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson signs this regulation, it will go into effect unless further action is taken.   The prohibition on Libyans was put in place in the 1980s to protect the U.S. against serious threats from terrorists from a particularly unstable and dangerous country.  The Obama Administration argues that this prohibition is no longer needed by claiming that the United States’ relationship with Libya has “normalized,” yet it is anything but normal. This shift in policy is misguided and ignores reality. Many extr
CONGRESSIONAL MAIL BAG: WHAT YOU'RE SAYING
Each month, my office receives thousands of phone calls, letters, e-mails, and even Facebook messages from folks across the Sixth District. Many have questions about current issues before Congress while some are requesting assistance with a federal agency.  Here are a few of the questions I have received in recent weeks:  What is your position on appointing an independent investigator to look into this unbelievable IRS situation? I agree that a Special Counsel to investigate targeting by the IRS is necessary. Under current law, the Attorney General is required to appoint a Special Counsel when it is determined that the criminal investigation would present a conflict of interest, or if it would be in the public interest to appoint an outside Special Counsel. In May, the House passed H. Res. 565 calling on Attorney General Holder to appoint a Special Counsel. Additionally, the House Judiciary Committee, which I Chair, held a hearing in July on the need for a Special Cou
LET'S AUDIT THE FED
A key part of good government is accountability to the taxpayers. We have seen in the recent IRS targeting scandal just what can happen when government officials and agencies are not held accountable. The Federal Reserve, or Fed, should not be excluded from this accountability. The Federal Reserve is the central bank of the United States and has a unique role in our financial system. The monetary policy decisions of the Federal Reserve affect every American. However, it has been subject to very little federal scrutiny since its creation by the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.  In recent years, I have heard from many folks around the Sixth District about the need for greater accountability of the Federal Reserve. There are many concerns about the Federal Reserve’s transparency and large loans facilitated during the financial crisis. In light of this, the Federal Reserve's funding facilities and relationship with the Department of the Treasury deserve careful evaluation, a
