Woodall Statement Regarding DHS Funding

2015/03/03

Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement regarding his vote against H.R. 240, the “Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015.” 

“In January, as well as twice last week, I voted to fully fund the Department of Homeland Security, while standing against the President’s unconstitutional overreach, in good faith that our Senate counterparts would honor the process in place to hash out the differences between the two chambers,” said Rep. Woodall.  “Sadly, the Senate Democrats denied Americans this opportunity. When the Senate rejected any partnership with the House on language, I voted 'no' on the Senate's flawed bill.”

Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Gwinnett and Forsyth counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process.

Woodall Reacts to President Obama’s Veto of Keystone XL Authorization

2015/02/24

Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall issued the following statement in reaction to the presidential veto of S. 1, authorizing construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

“By vetoing the Keystone XL pipeline authorization today, President Obama said “no” to the American people; as well as to the jobs, energy security, and reduction in daily living costs that the bill would provide,” said Rep. Woodall.  “Republicans and Democrats alike came together and found a way to say “yes,” but sadly the President chose not to join us.  America’s new Congress is committed to getting things done on behalf of the American people, and while I do not know whether the Senate has enough votes to override the President’s misguided veto, I hope that it will try in the near future.” 

Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Gwinnett and Forsyth counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process.

National security, energy, and budget among topics at Woodall Town Hall

2015/02/23

After a flurry of activity on Capitol Hill for the first 6 weeks of America’s new Congress, Members have returned home to hear from constituents.  Having already conducted a series of telephone town hall meetings this year, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall hosted an in-person town hall meeting on Thursday evening.  Offering an overview of what has happened in Washington recently, Woodall also took questions from the audience on issues including the federal budget and national security.

“A lot has happened in Washington during the first month and a half of the new American Congress, and it’s great to hear from the folks in the community on how they view our progress to this point,” said Rep. Woodall.  “I believe we have a fantastic opportunity to move the country towards more efficient, effective, and accountable government, and I know that having open conversations with the men and women here at home is essential for that success.” 

In recent weeks, the House has passed multiple pieces of legislation ranging from national security to regulatory reform, but also successfully partnered with the Senate to authorize construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Previously passed by the House on numerous occasions, the measure was approved by the Senate, and is now headed to the President for consideration.   As he had done in the past, Woodall supported the bill, while managing the rule for debate on the House floor.

“As just one example of what we can accomplish with a functioning process in Washington, the Keystone XL pipeline legislation is a commonsense bill that is good for America,” Woodall continued.  “Americans deserve representation that searches for solutions and takes action; and the estimated 40,000 jobs, increased energy independence, and lower daily living costs for families across the country are good results.  The President will have a chance with this bipartisan bill, and many others in the near future, to hear what the American people are saying, and it’s my hope that he’ll choose to partner with us.”

Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Gwinnett and Forsyth counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process.
