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. ...

GREENVILLE, NC – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) is thanking President Donald Trump for blocking the sale of Lattice Semiconductor Corporation to, among others, China Venture Capital Fund Corporation Limited (CVCF).  Lattice Semiconductor is an American company that makes programmable logic chips.  These chips are critical to American military applications, and are also used in industrial settings. CVCF is a Chinese corporation owned by Chinese state-owned entities that manages industrial investments and venture capital.  In blocking the acquisition, President Trump found that the proposed deal posed a national security risk related to “the potential transfer of intellectual property to the foreign acquirer, the Chinese government’s role in supporting this transaction, the importance of semiconductor supply chain integrity to the United States Government, and the use of Lattice products by the United States Government.” “I would like to thank the president and his admi
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) is continuing to push the federal government to protect American financial markets from communist China. Twice in the past year, Congressman Jones has sounded the alarm with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) about the proposed takeover of the Chicago Stock Exchange (CHX) by a Chinese firm – Chongqing Casin Enterprise Group (CCEG). On August 9th, 2017, the SEC put the deal on hold pending further review.  Yesterday, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) and 17 of his congressional colleagues wrote to the leaders of the commission to thank them for their delay of the proposed takeover, and to again ask them to ultimately block it. “Stopping this deal is just common sense,” said Congressman Jones.  “Why would America ever give communist Chinese a key piece of our financial markets?”  Today’s letter specifically states, “…this transaction would expose our markets to new vulnerabilities as a result of pote
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) continued his fight for the unborn and voted for H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This legislation, introduced by Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-8), would make it a crime for any person to perform an abortion if the probable age of the fetus is 20 weeks or older, the time at which an unborn child is medically proven to feel pain. “The act of taking a life is always wrong, especially when we know that life can feel pain.” said Congressman Jones.  “We must restore the sanctity of life in this country. Hopefully, passage of the Pain-Capable Act can be a pivotal step in that process.  I urge the Senate to quickly move this bill so it can be sent to the president and signed into law.” H.R. 36 passed the House by a vote of 237-189. It now heads to the Senate for further consideration. Congressman Jones is a senior member of the Pro-Life Caucus and has been an unwavering advocate of legislation to prote
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) commended the Trump administration for their work to defend religious liberty, and announced his signing onto two amicus briefs regarding upcoming religious liberty cases to be heard by the Supreme Court. Congressman Jones and 74 of his House colleagues have filed Masterpiece Cake Shop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, a brief which argues on behalf of bakery owner Jack Phillips, who refused to violate his faith by baking a personalized cake for a same-sex marriage ceremony. The Trump Department of Justice recently submitted a similar brief in support of Mr. Phillips. Congressman Jones has also joined Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and fellow colleagues in filing a brief in Arlene’s Flowers v. State of Washington, a similar case surrounding a florist who refused to violate her faith by providing flowers for a same-sex marriage ceremony.  Both cases will be heard by the Supreme Court later this year. “America was founded base
