January 28, 2019 Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Last week, Congressman Ken Buck (CO-04) introduced legislation (H.R. 793) to prohibit Members of Congress from using official funds to pay for travel to leave Washington, D.C. during a government shutdown. A Member may use official funds to return to Washington, D.C. if they happen to be away from the Capitol. However, if a Member of Congress would like to leave D.C. during a government shutdown, they will have to pay out of their own pocket.

When it comes to utilizing and stewarding our nation’s lands and resources, I trust local stakeholders and officials more than I trust Washington bureaucrats to know what’s best for Colorado, for the West, and for the entire nation.

More transparency in our budgeting process is always a good thing. This legislation measures whether or not Congress complies with discretionary spending caps by offsetting any budget increases with accurate, realistic decreases in spending.

Republicans promised to roll back President Obama’s oppressive regulatory regime. This House rule allows Congress to reassert its rightful authority over the executive branch by repealing excessive regulations and overreaching executive orders.

"When Congress investigated the agency’s behavior, Commissioner Koskinen misled us. This is a serious breach of trust. He works for the American people, and it’s time for the American people to fire him. The IRS would be better off without Commissioner Koskinen showing up to work every day."

Apparently President Obama was absent the day they taught civics. This Article I Resolution sends a clear message to the President that Congress alone has the right to make laws -- and that the people expect him to faithfully execute those laws.

We’ve seen the President bypass the will of the people recently—on gun rights, health care, and costly regulations. I’m eager to participate in this executive overreach task force because reasserting the power of Congress is actually reasserting the power of the people.
January 13, 2016 Press Release
Congress has sat idle for too long, allowing the President to act beyond his authority. With this bill, Congress will be reasserting its Article I power and reining in executive overreach. I encourage my colleagues to become co-sponsors.
