·       Congressman Paul Gosar: This week the House continued the annual process of appropriating federal funds to various government agencies and departments, focusing on Department of Defense Appropriations for fiscal year 2015. I was able to pass three amendments targeted at cutting wasteful spending out of the defense budget. However, I am particularly proud of one of those amendments. I always say that I rely on my constituents to be my eyes and ears on the ground looking for ways that we can cut spending and make the federal government more efficient and effective. My actions this week are a testament to that principle. On Thursday June 19, the efforts and ideas of a group of constituents in the Fourth Congressional District were included in an amendment that the House unanimously agreed upon. My amendment saves the U.S. Army around $5 million a year by switching back to a previous aviation flight uniform that has proven to be safer and more cost effective. Given the safety and practicality applications, combined with the fact that the United States is not exactly running a budget surplus right now, saving a few million here and there in the name of safety and practicality is something we should all agree upon. See amendment HERE.

·       Amendment 2: Prohibiting Funds for Unused Afghanistan Patrol Boats: This amendment prohibits the Department of Defense from wasting more money on storage for eight patrol boats which have already cost taxpayers more than $3 million. These boats have never been used and have been sitting in storage in Virginia for almost four years. Read more HERE.

·        Amendment 3: Prohibiting Funds from Going to Terrorists: This amendment will further hold accountable foreign terrorist organizations (FTOs), in addition to those foreign governments who support their efforts. Giving assistance to FTOs is generally outlawed in the U.S. Code, but the Obama Administration time and time again has failed to enforce the laws of this nation. My amendment checks both the President’s lawless behavior in addition to his listless and dangerous foreign policy agenda. Read more HERE.

See Briefs at Http://Archives.Mcrcbriefs.Org/

 

·       Candidate Yard Signs In Your Neighborhood Are Legal.  The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees your right to free speech, and state law supports homeowners' rights to display political yard signs during election season -- despite HOA rules which may try to restrict your rights. Details on the law are here (toward the end of the document) and it's clear that an HOA cannot enforce sign regulations that are more restrictive than those of the city, town or county. If you are living in an HOA and run into this situation, please visit our Facebook page and tell your side of the story.  AZGOP newsletter.
