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 ...

HONORING WOMEN OF CHARACTER, COURAGE & COMMITMENT
From the birth of our nation, women have played an integral role in history. We can all think of a woman who has influenced the course of the United States.  Think of Dolley Madison, who saved the painting of George Washington from fire, or Clara Barton, founder of what is now the American Red Cross.  The suffragists who fought for the right to vote also come to mind as well as Rosa Parks who took a stand for civil rights, Sandra Day O’Connor, the first female justice on the United States Supreme Court, and Sally Ride, the first American woman in space.  All of these women and many more have paved the way for the women who are active in every aspect of our society today. Women’s History Month honors the contributions of women of character, courage, and commitment to the history and culture of the United States.  This special recognition originated with a resolution passed by Congress in 1981 designating the week of March 7, 1982, as Women’s H
STOPPING GOVERNMENT ABUSE
Whether in the form of new regulations on businesses or mandates on families created under the new health care law, increasing executive overreach and government abuse is only growing the size and scope of the federal government.  This trend is not the way to spur the economic growth and job creation our nations needs. This past week, the House of Representatives took up, and passed, 12 bills in an effort to stop government abuse and reduce the regulatory burden on working families and small businesses.  These bills were born from concerns voiced by the American people, and address topics ranging from reducing the impact of federal mandates to protecting private property rights.  I am pleased that the House approved the Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act in order to block new IRS regulations that would hamper the constitutional rights of certain non-profit groups.   Excessive regulation means higher prices, lower wages, fewer job opportuni
ACTION FOR CONGRESS ON EXECUTIVE OVERREACH
Think back to civics class – one of the first lessons you probably learned was about the three branches of the United States government.  The Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches were created as three co-equal branches of our government under the belief that any one branch should not gain too much power.  However, it would seem that some of these lessons have been forgotten by this Administration.  Our Constitution is clear: Congress writes our laws, the Judiciary interprets them, and the President enforces them.  But for the past five years, President Obama repeatedly has waived, amended, or ignored our laws and has bypassed the Congress, issuing executive decrees from the Oval Office rather than working with Americans’ elected representatives in Congress.  The issue of overreach by the Executive Branch is certainly not a new one and President Obama is not the first to stretch the presidential powers beyond constitutional limit
CELEBRATING AMERICAN AGRICULTURE
Many days, long before the sun rises and long after the sun sets, farmers across the nation are hard at work producing the food and fiber products we rely upon.  From the very foundation of the United States to the present day, these hardworking farmers and ranchers have held a place at the core of our economy. From rolling pastures with livestock to fields of corn to vineyard rows and farmers’ markets, if you’re driving through the Sixth District the importance of agriculture is evident.  In Virginia, there are more than 46,000 farms owned and operated by individuals and families. The economic impact of the agriculture industry is $52 billion dollars annually and provides nearly 311,000 jobs in the Commonwealth alone. As we mark National Ag Day on Tuesday, March 25th, I hope that all Americans will take a moment to reflect on the tremendous contributions our nation’s agriculture industry has made to our economy, communities, and American way of
