Rep.Lewis Joins Rep.Johnson to Produce Mega-Job Fair


Washington might not be working on trying to help Atlantans find jobs, but Reps. John Lewis and Hank Johnson are. In conjunction with the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), Lewis and Johnson joined forces to try to host the most comprehensive job fair this year. In response to skyrocketing unemployment in the African American community on top of high national averages, the CBC decided to launch the “For the People” Jobs Initiative to raise awareness and built support for H. Res. 348, which calls on Congress to pass more than 40 bills proposed by the CBC to help alleviate the ...


Rep. Hank Johnson: Regaining Prosperity… and Protecting It


I am so pleased to see The Huffington Post inaugurating its Black Voices site, and I appreciate the opportunity to contribute in its first week. As an African-American member of Congress at this critical moment in our nation's history, my first duty is to bring jobs back to the community I represent. To create jobs, we need smart and bold investments that put people back to work today and sustain opportunity in the future -- investments in infrastructure, energy, education, science and technology. The Recovery Act stimuluspackage that was passed inearly 2009 helped stabilize an economy in ...

A Conyers business welcomed U.S. Congressman Hank Johnson on Monday morning and talked about what federal government can do to help small businesses compete in the national market.

Congressman Hank Johnson's Statement on the Selection of Sen. Jeff Sessions for Attorney General
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) released the following statement regarding the selection of Alabama junior Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General: “Senator Session’s history of racist and xenophobic animus and his hardline stance against critical legal reform issues makes his selection for Attorney General exceedingly worrisome in a time when Americans are still recovering from a racially divisive election.       “Senator Sessions voting record reflects a politician without commitment to equal rights for all Americans. In addition to his vote against reauthorization of the landmark Violence Against Women Act and against expanding the list of federally recognized hate crimes, Sen. Sessions published 23-page hardline manifesto on immigration policy that provided no meaningful proposals to reform the process. He advocates the ripping apart of innocent families and supports policies that would detrimentally impact America’s ability to attract the wor
Rep. Johnson Applauds FTC “Sharing Economy” Report, Renews Call for Hearing
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued a staff report providing an assessment of the regulatory and competition policy implications of sharing economy platforms. The report follows a 2015 June FTC public workshop on the issue. In April of this year, Congressman Johnson, Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee with jurisdiction over regulatory and competition policy, called for the FTC to issue this report based on the 2015 workshop and pressed his Republican colleagues for a hearing on the issue. He released the following statement on the report: “I applaud the Commission for its thorough assessment of the sharing economy’s impact on regulatory, competition, and consumer protection policy,” Johnson said. “It is clear that this market, like any other innovative market, must operate in a regulatory framework that promotes and defends competition while protecting consumers. I will continue to monitor the issue closely as the Ranking Membe
Rep. Johnson laments lack of response from Academy on diversity
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04), Ranking Members of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial, and Antitrust Law (RRCAL) today released the following statement after not receiving a response to multiple letters to leadership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Academy) and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) concerning the lack of racial and gender diversity of their membership. This illustrates the industry's lack of commitment to improving diversity in its rank despite claims to address the problem after the 2016 "Oscars Are So White" scandal. With less than 100 days left before the next Oscars announcement will be made, it appears bleak that Congress will have any opportunity to weigh in, provide guidance, or assistance despite numerous requests for meetings and letters sent to the MPAA.   “It’s disappointing to say the least that the Academy and MPAA have shown little interest in starting an open dial
