Rep. Tom Graves, House Pass Bill Repealing Obama Restriction on Seniors’ Access to Firearms

Posted on February 2, 2017 Filed Under Chairman's Corner, In the News, Press Release, Public Service Announcment

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today voted for and the House passed H.J. Res. 40, of which Rep. Graves is a cosponsor. The legislation repeals the Obama administration’s rule that requires the Social Security Administration to share information with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System for individuals who received Disability Insurance benefits or Supplemental Security Income and have a designated payee for their benefits. If allowed to go into effect, the rule would unnecessarily increase scrutiny of millions of law-abiding citizens and infringe on their Second Amendment rights.

“Every American has a constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” said Rep. Graves. “This misguided rule could restrict the rights of millions of Americans without due process, such as disabled veterans who are simply having a difficult time managing their finances. The Senate should act quickly to send this legislation to President Trump for his signature.”

Rep. Tom Graves Applauds President Trump for Advancing Keystone XL Pipeline

Posted on February 1, 2017 Filed Under Chairman's Corner, In the News, Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after President Trump signed an executive order advancing the Keystone XL Pipeline:

 

“I applaud President Trump for advancing the Keystone XL Pipeline, which Republicans in Congress pushed the Obama administration to approve for years. Construction of the pipeline will support more than 40,000 jobs and add billions of dollars to our economy. It was subject to five safety and environmental reviews by the State Department, and is even supported by labor unions. This action will make a real difference to all of the Americans who will have the opportunity to work and support their families as a result of this pipeline.”

According to the State Department, construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline will support approximately 42,100 jobs and roughly $2 billion in earnings throughout the country.

 

Rep. Tom Graves Fights to Make Ban on Taxpayer Funded Abortions Permanent

Posted on February 1, 2017 Filed Under Chairman's Corner, In the News, Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) released the following statement after voting in favor of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act (H.R. 7), which makes the ban on taxpayer funded abortions permanent and prohibits the federal government from subsidizing insurance plans that cover elective abortion:

“I stand with the millions of Americans who believe in protecting the lives of the innocent unborn. No American should have their conscience violated by paying for abortions through their tax dollars. That’s why Congress passed annual legislation banning this practice for the last 30 years. The bill we passed today finally makes that ban permanent, removing fear that it could lapse and making a strong statement in support of life. I urge the Senate to act quickly to send this important legislation to President Trump’s desk.”

H.R. 7 passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 238 to 183.
