Tom Graves says bank broke promise


U.S. Rep. Tom Graves filed an affidavit Thursday reiterating that he was wronged by the bank that is suing him and a state lawmaker over a failed hotel in Gordon County. In nearly identical six-page documents, Graves, R-Ga., and state Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock, claimed Bartow County Bank changed the terms of the loan the two used to open Tich Hospitality and the Oglethorpe Inn in Calhoun. The documents say the bank then declared the company and the lawmakers in default. Other recently filed court documents indicate Graves and Rogers used money the Georgia Department of ...


Bob Barr contemplating a run against Tom Graves


From the GOP grapevine: Former Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr has told friends that he’s contemplating an attempted return to Congress – and a return to the Republican fold. Barr, a longtime resident of Cobb County, would challenge U.S. Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger – a tea party favorite. In August, the Legislature redrew Graves’ district to include heavily populated Floyd and Paulding counties – which now make up 38 percent of the electorate. Barr has told acquaintances that he would move to Paulding. We put a call into his office this morning, ...


Rep. Tom Graves' attorney: Bank was at fault


U.S. Rep. Tom Graves' attorney says the disputed loan agreement between his client and a Northwest Georgia bank is not valid because the bank should have known the Georgia congressman couldn't repay the money and it cut the lawmaker some slack when his company couldn't make payments. In court documents, attorney Simon Bloom contends Bartow County Bank never should have issued Graves and his business partner a loan, citing statements in a deposition in which a bank official admitted knowing the partners did not have the money to guarantee the loan. Graves and state Senate Majority Leader Chip ...

Rep. Graves Votes to Hold North Korea Accountable
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after the House approved the North Korea State Sponsor of Terrorism Designation Act (H.R. 479) and a resolution condemning North Korea’s development of intercontinental ballistic missiles (H.Res. 92): “Simply put, North Korea cannot have weapons capable of striking the United States. The nation is run by a dangerous, delusional dictator, who supports terror activities around the world, including cyberattacks on our nation and our allies. This legislation clearly shows the House’s bipartisan commitment to holding North Korea accountable and ensuring it never becomes a direct threat to the homeland.” H.R. 479 requires the Secretary of State to determine whether North Korea is state sponsor of terrorism. H.Res. 92 condemns North Korea’s development of ballistic missiles, approves of the deployment of additional defenses in South Korea and urges China to end sanctions against South Korea for bolstering its defens
Healthcare Rescue Mission Begins
Beginning the healthcare reform process, the House passed the Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act (H.R. 372) and the Small Business Health Fairness Act (H.R. 1101). These bills are part of Phase 3 of President Trump’s healthcare plan. H.R. 372 ends the health insurance industry’s exemption from antitrust and unfair trade practices laws, which were originally enacted to protect new health insurance companies and ensure state authority over insurance. Speaking of H.R. 372, Rep. Graves (R-GA-14) said, “It’s Economics 101 that competition reduces prices and improves quality. In 2017, health insurance companies have no business being exempted from antitrust laws, which prevent monopolies and ensure fair competition in the marketplace. Anyone who believes in the free market should support this commonsense reform.” H.R. 1101 would allow small businesses to pool together to create Association Health Plans, which would reduce the cost of insurance by creating larger pool
Rep. Tom Graves Supports Rural Job Creators
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after voting in favor of the Supporting America’s Innovators Act (H.R. 1219), bipartisan legislation encouraging venture capitalists to invest in rural entrepreneurs:  “Small businesses and the entrepreneurs that create them are the backbone of our nation’s economy. But the Great Recession and the overregulation that followed has made it harder for entrepreneurs to access the capital necessary to start or expand their business, especially in rural areas like Northwest Georgia. This bill makes reforms that encourage venture capitalists to invest in rural small businesses, which will help create good-paying jobs in rural communities throughout Georgia and across the country.”       H.R. 1219 increases the number of people who can invest in certain venture capital funds before the funds must register as “investment companies” with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) fro
Rep. Graves to EPA: Honesty is Always the Best Policy
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after voting in favor of the HONEST Act (H.R. 1430), which prohibits the EPA from issuing regulations based on science that is not publicly available: “Honestly, the EPA cannot continue using hidden science while making big decisions that affect people’s livelihoods and communities. By keeping scientific data secret, the EPA prevents the public from reviewing, testing and replicating the information that governs them. Honesty is always the best policy, and this bill will help ensure the EPA is upfront with the American people.” H.R. 1430 passed the House by a vote of 228 to 194. ###
