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 VOTES AGAINST ADDING $9 TRILLION TO NATIONAL DEBT
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressmen Walter B. Jones (R-NC) voted against S. Con. Res. 3, the largest budget ever passed in United States history. The bill passed the House with a vote of 227-198. “America cannot continue to borrow and spend, with no end in sight,” said Congressman Jones. “That is why I have voted against every bloated budget for the past 12 years. During that period, the national debt has increased by over $12 trillion. If we continue down this irresponsible path, there will be consequences for all Americans.  A broke nation cannot be a great nation.” For additional information, please contact Allison Tucker in Congressman Jones’ office at (202) 225-3415 or allison.tucker@mail.house.gov. ###    
JONES SUPPORTS BUY AMERICAN, HIRE AMERICAN INITIATIVES
WASHINGTON, DC – Last week, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) and 16 of his colleagues wrote to President Donald J. Trump, expressing their full support for “Buy American, Hire American” policy. These programs and initiatives would stipulate that federally funded transportation and infrastructure resources be produced in the United States. “It is unbelievable how many taxpayer funded projects are constructed using foreign-made products,” said Congressman Jones. “It is time we support our own industries and return these opportunities to American workers.” The full letter is attached.

JONES APPALLED BY $1 BILLION IRAQI BOND BACKED BY US TAXPAYERS
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (R-NC) responded to the Government of Iraq’s issuance of a $1 billion 5-year bond that, courtesy of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is backed by a full faith and credit guarantee from the United States government.   Under that guarantee, if Iraq cannot pay back the bond, repayment of the principal and interest would fall on the backs of American taxpayers. “We are currently paving our own path to ruin,” said Congressman Jones. “The United States is $20 trillion in debt.  Annual federal deficits are well over $500 billion and growing.  We can’t even pay our own bills without borrowing tens of billions from overseas every year, and this administration has the audacity to put American taxpayers on the hook to repay the debts of a foreign country?  The insanity is astonishing.  Things like this are a major reason why I don’t vote for foreign aid bills.” Attached is the full release
JONES, COLLINS, AND FARENTHOLD INTRODUCE LEGISLATION TO PROTECT MILITARY FACILITIES
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) joined Congressmen Chris Collins (NY-27) and Blake Farenthold (TX-27) to introduce legislation that would curb the installation of wind turbines in close proximity to military installations. Congressmen Jones, Collins, and Farenthold introduced the “Protection of Military Airfields from Wind Turbine Encroachment Act” in an effort to ensure that any new wind turbines built within a 50-mile radius of a military installation will be deemed ineligible for the Wind Production Tax Credit. A companion bill was introduced in the United States Senate by Senator John Cornyn (R-TX). “We must prioritize the safety of our service members and the operational integrity of our military installations,” said Congressman Walter B. Jones. “Taxpayers have made significant investments in our military facilities in order to provide for our national defense.  Those investments and that mission must take precedence.  I thank my colleagues
