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 ...

IT'S TIME FOR CONGRESS TO END THE ETHANOL MANDATE
Some have called it a “well-intentioned flop” while others say it’s an anti-competitive government mandate, but whatever you call the ethanol mandate, or Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), it’s clear this policy has caused many negative consequences for American consumers.  Few issues in Congress have such broad support for true reform. Livestock producers, environmental groups, food manufacturers, food aid groups, restaurant owners, boat owners, motorcyclists, and energy producers all share concerns about the ethanol mandate. In fact, in the last Congress more than 218 bipartisan Members of Congress agreed that RFS needs to be re-examined. That is largely because the RFS has such a far-reaching impact on consumers and our economy, both locally and throughout the nation. This policy mandates that 36 billion gallons of renewable fuels be part of our nation’s fuel supply by 2022 whether we need it or not. A vast majority of this is being fulfilled by et
STORIES FROM OBAMACARE
Next month marks five years since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, was signed into law. We’ve all heard stories stemming from Obamacare: loss of coverage, higher costs, technology glitches, and red tape a mile long. But for all too many American families, these stories are real life nightmares.  The fact of the matter is that the President’s health care law is not working to improve the affordability or availability of health care for many Americans. This is the message I have consistently heard from families and businesses in the Sixth District of Virginia. The examples, unfortunately, are plentiful.  One business owner contacted my office after his employees did not receive their insurance cards.  As it turns out, the insurance company was not required to provide coverage to this small business because it did not meet a certain employee number threshold. Instead, the business was forced to purchase different covera
STANDING STRONG FOR THE CONSTITUTION
A decision made by a U.S. District Court in Texas just a few days ago has had a major impact on President Obama’s recent executive actions to unilaterally change our immigration laws. The court’s injunction temporarily halts the President’s deferred action program for unlawful immigrants, essentially ruling that he overstepped his powers in trying to grant legal status and “benefits and privileges” to millions of illegal immigrants. In the ruling, Judge Andrew Hanen writes that these actions represent “a massive change in immigration practice” and will have a significant effect on “the nation’s entire immigration scheme and the states who must bear the lion’s share of its consequences.” President Obama’s executive overreach on immigration poses a clear and present danger to our Constitution. I am pleased that these actions have been temporarily halted. This will allow a lawsuit filed by 26 states that challenge
COMBATING HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Many Americans don’t think of human trafficking as a problem in our country. The sale of children for sex sounds like something that could only happen in faraway places, but tragically it is happening right here in the United States every single day. Virginia is no exception. According to the FBI, sex trafficking is the fastest-growing business of organized crime and the third-largest criminal enterprise in the world. Sadly, this immoral and criminal industry is also a profitable one. It’s estimated that child sex trafficking in the United States alone is a $9.8 billion industry.  Together as a nation we must send the strong message that our children are not for sale. In an effort to help end this horrific crime, the House of Representatives passed a series of bipartisan bills aimed at updating our laws to combat human trafficking. Four of these bills were previously passed out of the House Judiciary Committee, including the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act
