Washington, D.C. – Congressman Ken Buck recently introduced the Multilateral Aid Review Act of 2019 to establish a review process for U.S. foreign aid dollars going to multilateral entities. This legislation would establish a United States Multilateral Aid Review to publicly assess the value of U.S. government investments in multilateral entities, such as the United Nations or the World Bank. This bill will provide Congress with a transparent and rigorous review of all funds the U.S.
Washington, D.C. – Anti-Semitism is a very real problem in our country that needs to be addressed. That’s why several weeks ago Congressman Ken Buck voted on the House Floor to condemn anti-Semitism. Today, the House of Representatives was presented with another opportunity to condemn the recent anti-Semitic remarks made by a member of the House of Representatives. However, the Democrat leadership watered down the language of the resolution to the point where it was unrecognizable and it failed to address a problem that needed to be confronted.
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.
