Congressman Calls For Investigation On Mo’ Money Taxes


Congressman Steve Cohen out of Memphis plans to join a Virginia Congressman in sending a letter to US Attorney General Eric Holder calling for an investigation into Mo' Money Taxes. This time of year is big business for tax preparers, but the response from Mo' Money Taxes customers is anything but positive. Customers all over the southeast have been complaining to the news media about the company. Just this week all six stores in the Norfolk, Virginia area were shut down and computers taking away by police. "The police took the computers out. They're not seized. They just took them out ...

Steve Cohen regrets losing Jewish voters in Tenn.’s 9th


Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), the first Jewish congressman ever elected in Tennessee, will be running in a fundamentally new 9th Congressional District this year without a strong base of support from the Jewish community in Memphis. On Friday, the Tennessee Senate approved a redistricting map that would effectively move most of Cohen’s Memphis-area Jewish constituency into the 8th Congressional District, represented by Rep.

CONYERS AND COHEN: TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CONFLATES RELIGIOUS LIBERTY WITH THE RIGHT TO DISCRIMINATE IN LATEST TROUBLING ACTIONS
Washington, D.C. – Today, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) and Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice Ranking Member Steve Cohen (D-TN) issued the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s issuance of two deeply troubling documents: (1) sweeping regulations by the Department of Health and Human Services that attack women’s healthcare by allowing any employer to deny their employees contraceptive coverage based on a religious or moral objection despite the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive coverage mandate and (2) a Department of Justice legal guidance memorandum to federal departments and agencies interpreting the scope of protection for religious liberty so broadly as to potentially undermine civil rights protections for LGBTQ persons, all under the guise of “protecting” religious liberty:      “Protecting religious freedom does not include creating a right to harm or discriminate against others.
SENS. SCHATZ, PAUL AND REP. COHEN REINTRODUCE BIPARTISAN LEGISLATION TO HELP EXPAND RESPONSIBLE USE OF POLICE BODY CAMERAS
WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senators Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and U.S. Representative Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) introduced the Police Creating Accountability by Making Effective Recording Available (Police CAMERA) Act of 2017.  This legislation would create a pilot grant program to assist state and local law enforcement agencies develop safe and effective body-worn camera programs that also protect civilians’ privacy rights. “We can’t restore trust between our communities and law enforcement without transparency and accountability. Body cameras alone won’t repair that relationship, but they have proven to be effective and can do a great deal to keep both police officers and community members safe and accountable,” said Senator Schatz “Body cameras will benefit the brave men and women who serve in our police force and the people they protect,” said Senator Paul. “The use of body cameras helps officers collect and preserve evidence to solve crimes, w
Congress can use the power of pets to help women and vets
Each year, Congress works hard to pass bills that will help the American people. While acrimony and partisanship have made this more difficult, lawmakers are considering two bills that have bipartisan support on Capitol Hill and among the American people: H.R. 2327 and H.R. 909, the Puppies Assisting Wounded Servicemembers (PAWS), and the Pets And Women Safety (PAWS) Acts of 2017. Each of these bills involves man’s best friend, and both provide for an underserved segment of America. In the case of H.R. 2327, veterans with PTSD and traumatic brain injuries are provided opportunities for healing through grant-funded service dogs. H.R. 909 expands the number of domestic abuse shelters that can accept pets, in order to help abused women escape domestic violence. Rep. Cohen is a sponsor of both bills, and PIJAC supports them on behalf of the professional pet care community. Passing these bills now would be a powerful symbol to a public eager for Congress to lead, as National Suicide
Keeping the Victims of the Las Vegas Mass Shooting in My Thoughts and Advocating for Reasonable, Commonsense Gun Laws
Dear Friend, This week, I was shocked and saddened when I learned of the Las Vegas mass shooting, cosponsored legislation to ban bump stocks that turn semi-automatic rifles into machine guns, responded to the shooting by recommending reasonable, commonsense gun laws, opposed the cruel budget passed by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, introduced the Police CAMERA Act to help provide body cameras for local law enforcement, and spoke out against a GOP bill that infringes on the rights of women that are included in Roe v. Wade. Keep reading to learn more about my week and follow me on Twitter and Facebook to see more updates as they happen.
