Chaffetz: Gingrich ‘Fairly Hypocritical’ on Indiv. Mandates

Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz, a Tea Party favorite, slammed Newt Gingrich today as an “unreliable conservative” and a “convenient conservative.” Speaking in a conference call with reporters arranged by the Romney campaign, Chaffetz, who has endorsed Romney, pointed to an audio clip from 2009 unearthed by Verum Serum this weekend that shows Gingrich supporting an individual mandate as a reason the former Speaker was less conservative than Romney. “For all the rhetorical barbs, Speaker Gingrich has thrown at Gov. Romney, this certainly leads one to believe that ...

Who is Congressman Chaffetz working for these days?

Who is Republican Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz working for these days . . . his constituents or Mitt Romney? If you were watching the January 23 Republican debate in Tampa, Florida and you live in Utah’s 3rd congressional district, you might have been more than a little surprised to see your Republican Congressman . . . the honorable Jason Chaffetz . . . sitting behind Mrs. Mitt Romney in the audience. I hate to bring this up, but Monday, January 23, 2012, was the 7th legislative day of the second term of the 112th Congress and Representative Chaffetz was not where he was paid to be ...

Jason Chaffetz on Blowing His College Budget

I went to Brigham Young University on a football scholarship. I wasn’t a football player, I was a place kicker. There’s a huge difference. But I thought I was a celebrity. We had a really good football team, and I was an important guy on the team. “Big man on campus” is really the best way to put it. When you’re on a football scholarship you get a stipend that’s supposed to cover your rent and a few incidentals. It was $360 a month. This was the late 1980s, and the NCAA has an interesting rule where you’re not allowed to supplement your income ...

Utah Delegation sends letter to President Opposing Use of Antiquities Act in Utah
Washington, D.C. – Today, Members of the Utah Delegation sent a letter to President Obama expressing strong opposition to the use of the Antiquities Act to create a national monument within San Juan County. The land in question covers 1.9 million acres in southeastern Utah. The letter encourages the president to support the locally-driven, ongoing Public Lands Initiative (PLI) process instead of unilaterally designating a monument.  Letter signatures include Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01), Rep. Jason Chaffetz (UT-03), Rep. Chris Stewart (UT-02), and Rep. Mia Love (UT-04). Key excerpts from the letter: “Federal land-use policy has a major impact on the lives of those residing within and near federal lands. We believe the wisest land-use decisions are made with community involvement and local support. This principle is true whether skyscrapers or sagebrush surround the community. “Use of the Antiquities Act within will be met with f
Chaffetz Praises BYU Ownership of Y Mountain Trail
WASHINGTON– Today, Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) released the following statement on news that Brigham Young University (BYU) now owns the deed to the land surrounding Y Mountain Trail: "BYU owning the land on Y Mountain finally settles who is responsible for maintaining the area surrounding the popular and heavily traveled trail. This is a win for Utahns, Y Mountain visitors, and the federal government. Local control of the trail will provide greater access, improve long-term maintenance, and preserve the beauty of Y Mountain for future hikers to enjoy." In the 113th Congress, Chaffetz’ introduced and passed The Y Mountain Access Enhancement Act, through the House of Representatives. The bill directed the Department of Agriculture to sell the “Y” block and surrounding land at fair market value to BYU. Language from the bill was signed into law December 2014.  ###
Chaffetz Looks To Protect Patients Using CBD Oil
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) introduced H.R. 4779, the CBD Oil Act of 2016, which would bar prosecution of individuals who use cannabidiol (CBD) oil for medical purposes as permitted by existing state law. Fifteen states, including Utah, have passed legislation permitting use of CBD oil for medicinal purposes. This legislation is supported by Utah Governor Gary Herbert. Chaffetz: “The use of CBD oil to treat epilepsy, cancer, and other intractable diseases has been successful for many patients including children. Patients who qualify to receive treatment should not have to fear prosecution by the federal government. States have taken the lead on this issue and the federal government should follow." Gov. Herbert: “I support Rep. Chaffetz in his effort to alleviate the fear that many Utah families face over conflicting state and federal laws regarding cannabis oil. This legislation resolves that concern by respecting decisions made at t
Utah Delegation seeks to Restore Local Control of Law Enforcement
WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to concerns expressed by local law enforcement and elected officials, Utah’s Congressional delegation today introduced H.R. 4751, the Local Enforcement for Local Lands Act of 2016.  This bill eliminates law enforcement functions of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and U.S. Forest Service on federal land, and instead grants authority to local law enforcement. Congressmen Rob Bishop (UT-01), Jason Chaffetz (UT-03), Chris Stewart (UT- 02), and Congresswoman Mia Love (UT-04) released the following statement upon introduction of the bill: “Federal agencies do not enjoy the same level of trust and respect as local law enforcement that are deeply rooted in local communities. This legislation will help deescalate conflicts between law enforcement and local residents while improving transparency and accountability. The BLM and U.S. Forest Service will be able to focus on their core missions without the distraction of police functions. This is a win all
