House Appropriations Voice Votes Allow Members to Avoid Accountability

The House Appropriations Committee has so far considered five of the 12 appropriations subcommittee spending bills. Not a single one of these bills received a recorded vote at full committee. Nearly $700 billion of spending that will come from the taxpayer, and increase our debt, was approved without a single member of the committee being put on the record with a vote during full committee consideration. As the appropriations process continues in the House, the chairman of the committee, Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.), and the ranking member of the committee, Rep. Nita M. Lowey (D-N.Y.), should either request a recorded vote on their own initiative or encourage one of the committee members to do so.

Due Process Act Will Protect Innocent People from Government Overreach

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) introduced legislation Wednesday that would reform federal civil asset forfeiture laws, offering key protections to innocent people whose property is seized by the government. The Deterring Undue Enforcement by Protecting Rights of Citizens from Excessive Searches and Seizures Act (H.R. 5283), or Due Process Act, is the most significant, if not first, major reform of federal forfeiture laws since 2000, when Congress passed the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act.

Uncovering Misconduct at the EPA

On Wednesday, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing to examine employee misconduct at the EPA. Misconduct has continued at the EPA despite repeated reform efforts and multiple hearings. Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) opened the hearing by calling the EPA “one of the most toxic places in the federal government to work.” That is a big claim, and one that should alarm conservatives and libertarians who consciously worry about corruption, protectionism, and bureaucracy in the federal government.

In a 9-4 bipartisan vote Tuesday, the Ohio House Judiciary Committee approved HB 347. The bill is sponsored by both Reps. Rob McColley (R-Napoleon) and Thomas Brinkman (R-Mt. Lookout). This advancement is a major step in progress for civil asset forfeiture reform goals but, more importantly, for Ohioans.

CFPB Anti-Arbitration Rule Gives Millions to Class Action Lawyers, Leaves Consumers in the Dust

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) hit a new low this month when they proposed a new rule that directly harms those that the CFPB was created to protect: the consumers. The proposed regulation would place severe restrictions on the use of arbitration in settling disputes, forcing consumer suits out of arbitration and into class action litigation. The studies and arguments the CFPB attempted to use in the proposal indicate that the CFPB is aware that it is harming consumers while padding the pockets of class action attorneys.
