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 (NC-3) released the following statement regarding the Diversity Visa Program, also known as the “visa lottery”:  “President Trump is absolutely right to call for the termination of the visa lottery program.” said Congressman Jones.  “The program grants 55,000 visas annually by pure luck instead of merit.  I have long advocated for its elimination and will continue to do so.” Congressman Jones has been an ardent supporter of securing borders and ending illegal immigration.

JONES VOTES TO SANCTION IRAN AND NORTH KOREA
WASHINGTON, DC – This week, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) voted for H.R. 1698, the Iran Ballistic Missiles and International Sanctions Enforcement Act, and H.R. 3898, the Impeding North Korea’s Access to Finance Act of 2017. The bills would impose sanctions on Iran and North Korea in an effort to rein in their nuclear weapons programs. H.R. 1698 passed the House with a vote of 232-191, and H.R. 3898 passed the House with a vote of 228-187.  The bills now go to the Senate for further consideration.  “Iran and North Korea must recognize that continuing their march toward nuclear weapons will have consequences,” said Congressman Jones.

Security Council Resolution 2231; • Th
JONES' LEGISLATION NAMED NOVEMBER 'BILL OF THE MONTH' BY FREEDOMWORKS
WASHINGTON, DC –  This week, FreedomWorks proudly named H.Res. 564 their Bill of the Month for November 2017, an award given to legislation that promotes less government, lower taxes, and more economic freedom. H.Res. 564, introduced by Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3), reaffirms the importance of retaining the federal debt limit.  The resolution states that “removing limitations on the debt would – (A) inappropriately cede Congress’ constitutional authority; (B) remove a critical check on future increases in deficit spending and the national debt; and (C) potentially exacerbate the already unsustainable fiscal position of the United States, and as a consequence, its national security.” “It is an honor my legislation was selected by FreedomWorks as its Bill of the Month,” said Congressman Jones.  “It is time that more people recognize the dire fiscal state of this country, and take steps towards reversing its dangerous path.” The full text of H.Res. 564 is attach
JONES WEIGHS IN FOR NORTH CAROLINA FISHERMEN
WASHINGTON, DC –  Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) is moving to help Eastern North Carolina fishermen who could be hurt by legislation pending before Congress.  The bills threaten America’s domestic shark fisheries, and a significant piece of those fisheries is in Eastern North Carolina.  They are sustainably managed and help support the economy in coastal North Carolina and other small fishing communities around the country.    The bills – H.R. 1456 and S. 793 – purport to be an attempt to stop the practice of shark finning (i.e. the process of removing fins at sea and discarding the shark).  They seek to do so by banning the sale of fins, even those harvested legally here in the United States.  However well-intentioned the bill sponsors may be, the fact is that shark finning has been illegal in the United States for many years.  Advocates for the legislation have countered with the false allegation that the practice is still widespread.  They publicly claimed that
