Jun 25, 2020 Press Release
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after voting against House Democrats’ Justice in Policing Act. While the Democrat bill has some similarities to the Republicans’ police reform bill, the JUSTICE Act, it includes dangerous provisions that would punish law enforcement officers for doing their job. House Democrats have refused to work with Republicans on their attempt at police reform. When given the opportunity to allow Republicans to amend the Democrat anti-police bill, the Majority has refused in both the Judiciary Committee and on the House Floor.
Jun 25, 2020 Press Release
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) is calling on Speaker Pelosi to apologize and begin negotiating a policing reform bill. Late Tuesday, Speaker Pelosi stated in an interview: Republicans “they were trying to get away with murder, actually – the murder of George Floyd.” Both House and Senate Republicans have introduced the JUSTICE Act, a police reform bill that funds additional body cameras and storage of camera footage, has federal reporting for use of force, and many other provisions, with the intention of modernizing our law enforcement standards and ensuring justice for all Americans. The Democrats’ proposal, the Justice in Policing Act does mirror large portions of the Republican bill, but also includes dangerous provisions that would allow frivolous lawsuits against good officers. Ultimately many of the provisions in the Democrat bill are designed to punish law enforcement, resulting in low morale of officers in retention, or recruitment of new ones. This is not the way to speed positive reforms. Republican Senators are attempting to take up the JUSTICE Act, a bill that is a positive effort for reform while respecting the good work our officers do, in an open manner that allows any member to offer amendments. Alas, Democrats have blocked any further consideration of the bill.
Jun 23, 2020 Press Release
(Washington, DC) Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) supports the trucking industry’s call to suspend the federal excise tax (FET). The FET was created in 1917 to help pay for World War I. When it was introduced, the FET was 3%, but has quadrupled to 12% today. Given the nature of recent economic hardships caused by the coronavirus, suspending the FET would stimulate heavy-duty truck and trailer sales.
