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 HOSTS PRESS CONFERENCE ON RESOLUTION EXONERATING FOX COMPANY
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, Congressmen Walter B. Jones (NC-3) and Ruben Gallego (AZ-7) hosted a press conference on H. Res. 21, a resolution stating that the Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps should issue a public document certifying that members of Fox Company of the Marine Special Operations Command were not at fault in the firefight on March 4, 2007, with enemy forces in Bati Kot District, Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan. Major Fred Galvin, Commander of the Fox Company, and Colonel Steve Morgan, Former Member of the Court of Inquiry, also gave their remarks. “When you hear this story and this truth, you see our Marines were never given the benefit of the doubt,” said Congressman Jones. “Our brave Marines put their lives on the line, just to have their names dragged through the mud. It is time these men be vindicated fully!” “Nothing is more scary then when your honor is called in to question – and that is what happened to these Marines,” said Congressman Gallego.
JONES VOTES TO OVERTURN OBAMA RULE REQUIRING TITLE X FUNDS TO GO TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) voted for H. J. Res. 43, a resolution to overturn an Obama administration rule that would require states to provide Title X funding to abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood, the nation’s number one provider of abortion. The resolution passed the House of Representatives with a vote of 230-188 and now moves to the Senate for further consideration.  “If states do not want to fund abortion providers through Title X, that is their absolute right,” said Congressman Jones. “As a pro-life advocate, I can never support the federal government coercing states to give funding to abortion providers.” For additional information, please contact Allison Tucker in Congressman Walter Jones’ office at Allison.Tucker@mail.house.gov or (202) 225-3415. ###  
JONES HONORS BRAVE MEMBERS OF LOOKOUT LIFESAVING STATION
WASHINGTON, DC – On Saturday, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) attended the Lifesaving Ceremony at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum in Carteret County.  The ceremony, postponed from November, honored the members of the Lookout Lifesaving Station for their bravery in rescuing the crew of the Sarah D.J. Rawson on a cold night in 1905.  All members earned a gold lifesaving medal for their heroism. Over time, the gold medals were lost, and Congressman Jones worked with the United States Coast Guard to reissue those medals. This weekend, the medals were placed in the museum at Cape Lookout in remembrance of those who saved the lives of shipwrecked marines and passengers. “These brave men will be honored in perpetuity by the display of gold medals in the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum,” said Congressman Jones. “Their bravery in rescuing the Sarah D. J. Rawson must never be forgotten. Thank you to the United States Coast Guard for their efforts in providing replacement medals to the
JONES DENOUNCES OBAMA-ERA EPA RULES
WASHINGTON, DC – Last week, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) and 37 of his colleagues wrote to President Donald Trump expressing concerns over the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan (CPP), Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS), and Ozone Standard of 70 parts per billion (ppb) Rules. After receiving frequent complaints, the representatives hope to overturn or revise the onerous rules, which were promulgated outside of congressional authorization and/or intent.  Now that the 60 day period for Congressional Review Act (CRA) has passed to reverse the rules, the members are asking that the Trump Administration look into the matter further. “The Obama-era EPA was completely out of touch with the American people,” said Congressman Jones. “These burdensome regulations are hurting farmers, trade, small businesses, and ultimately, the consumer.  They should be overturned or revised immediately.” The full letter is attached.For additional information, please contact Allison Tucker in Co
