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’ 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

JONES CALLS FOR REMOVAL OF UNNECESSARY EPA REGULATION IMPACTING AURORA MINE
WASHINGTON, DC – This week, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) called on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt to review a new regulation that may threaten the viability of the Potash phosphate mine in Aurora, North Carolina.  The regulation, which was finalized by the Obama administration in 2015, would force operators of the mine to install a costly, unproven new technology to limit mercury emissions.  The regulation was put in place despite the EPA’s determination that pre-existing regulations were already sufficient to protect public health.  In his letter, Jones asked Administrator Pruitt to review the regulation for possible revision or elimination.     “This one just doesn’t make sense,” said Congressman Jones. “Putting 850 jobs at risk for no meaningful public health benefit is unacceptable.  It’s a perfect example of the regulatory overreach that is shackling our nation.  I hope the administrator will see fit to remove this unn
