Jones votes to rein in federal regulations


Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) and 236 of his Republican colleagues voted for H.R. 10, also known as the REINS Act. The measure, which Jones is an original cosponsor of, would require Congress to approve every major rule proposed by the Executive branch before it can be imposed on American taxpayers. The REINS Act requires Congress to take an up-or-down vote on regulations to rein in costly overreach of federal agencies that stifles job creation and hinders economic growth. Such a process would help safeguard taxpayers from unnecessary and onerous regulations and ensure that federal ...


Jones Votes for Wall Street’s Bad Bill


The Truth or Dare blog points out that U.S. Rep. Walter Jones (NC-3) was one of only three Republicans who voted for the “Wall Street Reform” legislation last week, a bill that even 18 Democrats chose not to support. The bill, listing just a few aspects of what it contains, dictates hiring quotas for financial firms, allows the federal government to take over what it deems “troubled” firms, and will regulate credit cards through the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection. The blogger contacted Rep. Jones’ office and asked for a statement regarding his decision ...


Jones: Bring troops home instead of cutting school lunch


Republican Congressman Walter Jones of North Carolina said Tuesday that all U.S. military forces should be pulled out of Afghanistan now that Osama bin Laden is dead. “Why this Congress continues to complain about budgets and cuts and deficits and debts — and our young men and women are walking the roads of Afghanistan getting their legs blown off and getting killed — we still sit here in Congress and don’t bring it up as an issue,” he said on the House floor. Jones added that Afghan President Hamid Karzai was a “corrupt leader,” and that the U.S. ...

JONES SUPPORTS EFFORTS TO DEFUND SANCTUARY CITIES
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) and 35 of his colleagues are calling on House appropriators to include language in a government funding bill to prevent Department of Homeland Security funds from being allocated to “sanctuary cities.” These municipalities defy federal immigration laws by harboring illegal immigrants and providing safe havens for criminals. “No city is above the law,” said Congressman Jones. “If you’re taking federal money, the least you can do is follow the law.  We must stop rewarding jurisdictions that blatantly flaunt the rule of law and endanger our fellow Americans.” Additionally, Congressman Jones recently cosponsored H.R. 400, Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act, which would prohibit sanctuary cities from receiving grants from governmental assistance programs. The full letter to House appropriators from Congressman Jones and his colleagues is attached. Congressman Jones has long supported strong borders and anti-illegal immigr
JONES VOTES AGAINST TRILLION DOLLAR SPENDING BILL
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) voted against H.R. 244, the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2017, a massive $1.16 trillion spending bill for the federal government.  H.R. 244 passed the House 309 to 118.  The bill now moves to the Senate, where it is expected to pass later today.  It will then be sent to the president to be signed into law.   “This 1,665-page bill is a major disappointment,” said Congressman Jones.  “It’s everything the American people hate about Washington.  It was drawn up behind closed doors, released at 2am on Monday morning, and then rammed through on Wednesday afternoon.  No one had sufficient time to read it before it was voted on.”   “The process stinks, and the product may be even worse,” continued Congressman Jones.  “This bill puts America one step closer to bankruptcy.  On top of our $20 trillion in existing debt, it adds tens of billions of dollars in additional deficit spending
JONES COMMENDS USITC VOTE ON SHRIMP IMPORTS
 WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) thanked the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) for their unanimous vote to extend antidumping orders on shrimp from China, India, Thailand, and Vietnam for five years. The USITC first enacted these orders more than 10 years ago to offset cheating by foreign producers, and to help level the playing field for American shrimpers. “Shrimping is an integral part of Eastern North Carolina’s heritage and economy,” said Congressman Jones. “Hard-working Eastern North Carolina fishing families have been devastated by unfairly traded foreign shrimp.  If these orders weren’t continued, producers from communist China, Vietnam and elsewhere would start illegally dumping shrimp into our market again.  I thank the members of the ITC for standing up for American workers.” For further information, the U.S. ITC’s announcement is attached, as is a statement from the American Shrimp Processor’s Association.  For addi
JONES’ STATEMENT ON AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 217 to 213 to pass H.R. 1628 – the American Health Care Act of 2017 (AHCA).  The bill would substitute portions of Obamacare with new federal programs and make a variety of other changes to the American health care system.  Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) has publicly expressed his opposition to the bill for weeks, and voted against the bill.  He released the following statement: “For over seven years, I have heard from the people of Eastern North Carolina about their trials and frustrations with Obamacare.  It is clear that Obamacare is not working.  That is why I voted against the bill that created it in 2010, and have continuously voted to repeal it,” said Congressman Jones.  “Now in 2017, for reasons I cannot understand, instead of moving a bill to repeal Obamacare and replace it with reforms that will fix our broken health care system, the Washington Republican leadership jammed a bill through the H
