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. ...

Butterfield (NC-01) applauded the approval of the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s (NCDOT) application to transform the highway into an interstate. “I introduced The Eastern North Carolina Gateway Act to underline the need for high-quality infrastructure in our region,” said Congressman Jones. “I am pleased that the NC Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration agree that Future Interstate 587 is a crucial investment in the future of Eastern North Carolina regional economy.

JONES VOTES TO EXTEND SANCTIONS ON IRAN
WASHINGTON, DC – This week, Congressmen Walter B. Jones (NC-03) voted for H.R. 6297, the Iran Sanctions Extensions Act.  The bill, introduced by Congressman Edward Royce (CA-39), would extend existing economic U.S. sanctions on Iran for another 10 years.  Those sanctions are set to expire at the end of this year.  Also this week, Congressman Jones voted for H.R. 5711, a bill that would prohibit the U.S. government from subsidizing the sale of commercial aircraft to Iran.  H.R. 6297 passed by a vote of 419 to 1, and H.R. 5711 passed by a vote of 243 to 174.  Both bills now move to the Senate for further consideration.    
JONES CONTINUES FIGHT AGAINST OBAMA’S REGULATORY OVERREACH
WASHINGTON, DC – This month, Congressmen Walter B. Jones (NC-03), along with 87 other Republican Senators and Members of Congress, filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth District calling for the Obama administration’s destructive Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule to be struck down. This rule, proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE), would dramatically expand the federal government’s regulatory authority over ditches, ponds and other small non-federal bodies of water on private property. In addition, last week Jones joined many of his congressional colleagues in sending a letter to House leadership to insist that no taxpayer funding for WOTUS implementation be included in any fiscal year 2017 appropriations bills. “Plain and simple, this rule is bad for private land owners and farmers in Eastern North Carolina and across the nation,” Jones said. “It’s the Obama administration in a
JONES JOINS ‘FIGHT FOR CAPE LOOKOUT’ AGAINST PARK SERVICE DIRECTIVE
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressmen Walter B. Jones (NC-03) joined local citizens’ group ‘Fight For Cape Lookout’ in pushing back on the National Park Service’s draft Director’s Order #100, a proposal that could have far-reaching implications for park management in Eastern North Carolina and across the country.  In a letter sent to Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis, Jones requested a 60-day extension of the public comment period on the proposed draft; consideration of Fight for Cape Lookout’s comments on the draft; and ultimately, a recension of the Director’s Order #100.  The Park Service’s original 30-day comment period on the order is scheduled to close today.   Text of Congressman Jones’ letter to Director Jarvis follows below:           “I am writing to request a 60-day extension of the public comment period on the draft Director’s Order #100.  As you know, this proposed directive has far-reaching implications for park management.  As suc
