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’ INITIATIVES INCLUDED IN HOUSE NDAA
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) passed H.R. 2810, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018.  The bill will next go to the House floor for a vote, which is expected to take place in July.  The NDAA is an annual policy and funding blueprint for the national security programs within the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Energy. As a senior member of HASC, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) was active in the drafting of this legislation and successfully attached several measures to H.R. 2810. Specifically, Congressman Jones’ efforts resulted in six additions to the NDAA to support military families, improve medical care for armed service members and veterans, and commemorate the men and women who have served in the Marine Corps, Special Forces Operations Command, and World War I. The 2018 NDAA contains the language of Jones’ longstanding bill, H.R. 171, to retitle the Department of the Navy as the Depar
JONES CONTINUES FIGHT AGAINST COMMUNIST CHINESE TAKEOVER OF AMERICAN MARKETS
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) is once again raising concerns over Chinese acquisitions of American markets and companies.  Earlier this year, Congressman Jones and over 50 of his congressional colleagues sounded the alarm about the proposed takeover of the Chicago Stock Exchange (CHX) by a Chinese firm – Chongqing Casin Enterprise Group (CCEG).  The decision about whether to approve or deny that transaction now lies before the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  In a letter to SEC Chairman Jay Clayton sent yesterday, Jones and 10 of his colleagues urged the SEC to deny the proposed takeover.  Jones and his colleagues believe Chinese ownership of the Chicago exchange poses financial, economic, and cyber-security risks to America. “A communist Chinese takeover of a trillion dollar American market could have highly dangerous and detrimental effects on the US economy,” said Congressman Jones.  “In my view, the SEC should immediately reject t
JONES URGES VA TO PAY ITS BILLS
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) is calling on the VA to start paying its bills on time so that care provided to veterans is not negatively affected.  In a letter sent to Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)  Secretary David Shulkin earlier today, Congressman Jones and 45 of his congressional colleagues voiced concerns about the VA’s outstanding payments and asked that the situation be addressed promptly.  Federal law requires the VA to pay vendors for goods and services within 30 days.  However, numerous vendors have outstanding invoices going back as far as 2013 and are awaiting hundreds of thousands, and sometimes millions of dollars, in overdue payments from the VA.  Those owed by the VA include providers of replacement knees and hips, cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators, and spinal implants. “No veteran should be subjected to a delay in treatment because the VA hasn’t paid its bills,” said Congressman Jones. “I know the Secretary is working har
JONES VOTES FOR STRONGER ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT
WASHINGTON, DC – Last night, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) continued his fight against illegal immigration by voting for passage of H.R. 3003, the No Sanctuary for Criminal Act, and H.R. 3004, Kate’s Law. “The tragic murders of Kate Steinle, Jamiel Shaw, and countless other acts of violence committed by criminal illegal aliens cry out for action,” said Congressman Jones.  “America must do more to stop illegal immigration.  Yesterday’s votes are an important step to returning this nation to the rule of law and ensuring our posterity.” H.R. 3003, the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, would restrict certain federal funding from going to jurisdictions that refuse to enforce immigration law.  It would also provide limited immunity to jurisdictions that honor ICE detainers which are used to pick up criminal aliens from local detention facilities.  H.R. 3003 passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 228-195. H.R. 3004, Kate’s Law, would increase penalties for il
