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.

Woodall Paves Way for Passage of “Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act”

2015/02/11

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (GA 07) managed the rule for debate of the Keystone Pipeline bill on the floor of the House, clearing the final hurdle for this bill to be sent to the President’s desk for his signature.  Woodall issued the following statement regarding his work on behalf of the “Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act.”

“The new American Congress is committed to delivering results to the American people, and that’s exactly what we’ve done as the House and Senate worked together to pass this important bipartisan legislation,” said Rep. Woodall.  “Americans deserve representation that searches for solutions and acts; 40,000 American jobs, increased energy independence, and lower daily living costs for families across the country are good results.  Americans, through their elected representatives, made their voices heard on this one, and President Obama’s decision to support or veto the bill will send a clear message to Americans as to whether or not he believes they are still in charge.”

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 Supports Full Repeal of Obamacare

2015/02/03

Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall issued the following statement regarding his support of H.R. 596, the “To repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and health care-related provisions in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.”

“Today, I voted to fully repeal Obamacare, and set in motion a targeted approach to solve the problems created by a law that has regrettably been anything but affordable for American families and taxpayers,” said Woodall.  “From the time it was first jammed through on an entirely party-line vote, Obamacare has been a source of great conflict among the American people, and has broken the very promises on which it was based.  For the millions of Americans unable to keep their doctor or the plan they had, and unable to afford an alternative, the problem has only expanded.”

“The American people want practical solutions to these problems, and Republicans in the House are working hard to offer principled solutions, just as we did last Congress with the American Health Care Reform Act, and much more.”

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 Named to Highways, Aviation Subcommittees

2015/01/27

In his new role on the powerful Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall has secured positions on both the Highways and the Aviation subcommittees.  Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) made the announcement today.  As the sole Member of the Georgia Delegation on the Committee, Woodall’s appointment is a significant development for the State and its transportation interests.

“We have a fantastic opportunity in the 114th Congress to make real progress on the challenges facing our region, and transportation is absolutely one of them,” said Rep. Woodall.  “Georgia is a natural leader on transportation in our region, and having a Georgia voice and advocate on the Committee in Washington will make a big difference for the State and for the nation.”

“There is much to do, but two of the most pressing legislative issues will be creating a long-term highway bill and a long-term aviation bill--both of which will flow directly through the Committee and the subcommittees on which I’m honored to serve,” Woodall continued.  “As the first voice for Georgia on this committee and on these issues in this decade, I am committed to  long-term solutions that will help keep our State competitive and vibrant.  Citizens deserve efficient, effective, and accountable federal highway and aviation programs, and 2015 is the year to provide those solutions.”

Transportation & Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) also weighed in on the recent subcommittee assignments, saying he looks forward to the added perspective brought by Woodall.

“Rep. Woodall is incredibly hard-working and brings a very valuable point of view to the table,” said Chairman Shuster.  “I’m pleased to see him take on these new roles and am confident his input will be pivotal as we craft the commonsense solutions needed to move the country forward.”

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