Rep. Bonner Supports Passage of Budget Control Act


Congressman Jo Bonner issued the following statement after the U.S. House passage of the Budget Control Act by a vote of 269 to 161 Monday evening. "Today's vote represents a victory for all Americans who have been concerned about the years of unchecked spending in Washington," Congressman Bonner said. "While the White House has been demanding a blank check to continue its overspending without any limitations, today the Congress tore up that blank check and has taken possession of the federal credit card that the American people are expected to pay. "This bill is far from perfect but it ...


Gulf of Mexico oil spill fine agreement likely months away


Gulf Coast lawmakers are likely months away from coming to an agreement on a plan to send what could be billions of dollars in oil spill fine money to the region, according to Rep. Jo Bonner, R-Mobile. Bonner said that talks among lawmakers have been "positive," and "progress is being made, a little bit at a time." But the effort has been hamstrung, he added, by disagreements over how to dole out the fine money, and delayed as Congress focuses on other matters, such as the federal budget and debt ceiling. "I would probably describe it as conversations rather than negotiations," Bonner said. ...


Bonner doubts debt ceiling deal will happen


Rep. Jo Bonner, R-Mobile, expressed doubt Saturday that Democrats and Republicans will agree on a debt ceiling compromise by the Treasury Department’s Tuesday default deadline. "I’m confident that we’re going to get an agreement. I’m less confident that it will be on Tuesday," Bonner said in a telephone interview. Bonner joined fellow House Republicans on Saturday in voting down a leading Democratic debt ceiling proposal. Meanwhile, 43 Republican senators — including Jeff Sessions, R-Mobile, and Richard Shelby, R-Tuscaloosa — signed a letter vowing to ...

Bonner Column: "Why Airbus Chose Alabama" and "Austal Clears Hurdle"
A Final Reflection on Why Airbus Chose Alabama: During a national economic speech last week, President Obama rattled off a number of recent positive developments on the job front, including "Airbus will build new planes in Alabama". His comment rekindled the conversation about just who is responsible for Airbus planting their flag in South Alabama. In short, it wasn't Washington, but rather you and me and everyone along the Gulf Coast who dared to dream and extend a hand of friendship to our European friends. Going into the competition to land Airbus, we knew that Brookley Aeroplex and our region were ideal for the aviation company's first North American manufacturing base. But truth be told, EADS-Airbus began their search – at the time to build a new refueling tanker for the Air Force – looking at 70 sites in 32 states. Eventually Mobile found itself on their shortlist of four possible sites. In the end, we took the prize due to our sheer determination, years of hard work and
House Passes Defense Appropriations Bill Funding Four More Littoral Combat Ships
WASHINGTON – The U.S. House of Representatives has approved funding for four additional Littoral Combat Ships (LCS), including two to be built by Austal USA, announced U.S. Rep. Jo Bonner, R-Alabama. The House voted 315 to 109 Wednesday to pass the Department of Defense Appropriations Act of 2014 (HR 2397). The bill provides full funding for the Navy's request to build four new LCS at a total cost of $1.8 billion. "As a member of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, I was pleased to support full funding for the LCS program when we marked up the bill in full committee on June 12, 2013, and I was honored to cast one of my last votes in Congress in support of the LCS this evening," Rep. Bonner said. "The LCS will play an invaluable role in the Navy's new strategy to counter asymmetrical, anti-access, near-shore threats and the House has twice voted this year to fully fund the program." On June 14, 2013, the House also overwhelmingly passed the National Defense Authorizat

Rep. Bonner Underscores LCS’ Special Role as Ensuring America’s Military Presence around the Globe
WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Jo Bonner, R-Alabama, spoke in support of the Navy's Littoral Combat Ship program Thursday during a House Armed Services Committee hearing regarding a recently released Government Accountability Office report detailing perceived challenges of the LCS program. In response to LCS critics who continue to misunderstand its mission, Congressman Bonner underscored the role of the LCS as a strategic presence used to promote U.S. military relations in far flung regions of the world and its importance in preventing future conflicts through persistent contact with our allies in these regions. "One of the comments was that it appears LCS might be of little value to the Asia pivot strategy, and so my question would be, what else does the Navy do in the South Pacific besides planning on fighting big wars? Are there not any other missions that the Navy does?," Bonner asked the witness panel. Congressman Bonner also emphasized the unique role that only the LCS ca
