The Mayor of Baltimore Kills Job Killing Minimum Wage Hike

On Friday, March 24, Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh vetoed a new $15 minimum wage that would have been implemented by 2022. This makes passing the measure’s future in serious doubt since an override of the mayor’s veto requires 12 out of 15 city council members to vote against and already several who voted for the measure have decided not to support an override.

Register of Copyrights Office Goes Rogue?

In late March, the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act, H.R. 1695, was introduced into the House of Representatives. The bill’s aim is to make the position of the Register of Copyrights an appointee of the President, rather than be chosen by the Librarian of Congress. The bill was sponsored House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and ranking member John Conyers (D-Mich.). As it stands now, the Register of Copyrights/Director of the Copyright Office is appointed by the Librarian of Congress.

The Future of Right to Work

Three months ago, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted against becoming the 29th “Right to Work” state, which would have made it the first “Right to Work” state in New England. Despite support from Gov. Chris Sununu and the state Senate, it was not able to break the necessary threshold to get out of the house.

Lawsuit Threatens Congressional Tool for Fighting Overreaching Regulations

A radical environmentalist organization has filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking to strike down the Congressional Review Act, a 1996 law that allows Congress to cancel final rules published by federal agencies. The Congressional Review Act (CRA) has been used heavily in the 115th Congress to cancel last-minute rules finalized by the Obama administration.

Support the Restoring Internet Freedom Act, S. 993

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to cosponsor the Restoring Internet Freedom Act, S. 993, introduced by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah). The bill would repeal the Federal Communications Commission’s 2015 Open Internet Order, through which the agency claimed regulatory power over the Internet, designating Internet service providers (ISPs) as “common carriers” under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934.

FCC's Title II Power Grab Could Reach the Supreme Court

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals declined a request for an en banc review of a case against Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) over its power grab to regulate the Internet through Title II of the Communications Act of 1934. The refusal to grant the full court review could result in an appeal to the Supreme Court should the case, United States Telecom Association v. Federal Communications Commission, be accepted.

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representatives and urge them to cosponsor the Financial CHOICE Act, H.R. 10, introduced by House Financial Service Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas). The bill would create more accountability in the United States’ financial system, end the “too big to fail” mentality, and promote economic growth.
