US Rep Guinta on passage of DHS funding bill 

banner

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement today following the passage of H.R. 240 – a bill to provide funding for the Department of Homeland Security through the rest of FY 2015:

 

“Like many Granite Staters, I oppose President Obama’s executive overreach granting de facto amnesty to millions of individuals who came here illegally.  The President has lost more than a dozen, unanimous decisions before the Supreme Court in the last few years alone; and, most recently a court found that he had exceeded his authority with regard to amnesty.  This was the correct decision.  We have an obligation to provide for the common defense; and, I believe that our national security is of utmost importance.  For these reasons, I voted to fund the Department of Homeland Security through the end of the fiscal year; and, look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure our border is secured and our nation is protected.”

US Rep Guinta joins bipartisan group to combat growing heroin and opiate epidemic 

banner

WASHINGTON. D.C. – This week, Congressman Guinta joined a bipartisan group of legislators to introduce H.R. 953 – the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act – to provide a robust response to the twin epidemics of opioid and heroin addiction that includes prevention, law enforcement strategies and the expansion of evidence-based treatment.

 

“Last week, I had the opportunity to hear from local law enforcement agents and first responders to discuss ways in which I can help combat our state’s growing heroin and opiate epidemic.  The use of these deadly drugs are affecting our communities, our schools, our neighborhoods, our medical facilities and more – and, I want to do everything in my power to provide our local officials with the tools and resources necessary to combat this issue and help Granite Staters overcome their deadly addictions.

 

The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act is a common-sense and bipartisan bill that will result in a more comprehensive approach towards addressing, educating and preventing heroin and opiate addiction in our state.  I look forward to its swift passage in the House of Representatives so we can begin preventing overdoses and addiction while simultaneously making our communities a safer place to live.”

 

H.R. 953 is a bipartisan bill sponsored by Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Tim Ryan (D-OH). 

 

The bill is endorsed by National Council, NASADAD, Legal Action Center, CSG, NGA, Major County Sheriffs, NIDA, ONDCP, Faces and Voices of Recovery, CADCA, Partnership for a Drug-Free America, and the Hilton Foundation.

WASHINGTON. D.C. Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement following the passage of a ‘clean’ bill to provide funding to the Department of Homeland Security:

“Granite Staters are tired of the gamesmanship ever present in Washington. It is time to stop governing by crisis.  This evening, I joined my colleagues in the House and Senate to extend funding for the Department of Homeland Security, while the respective legislative bodies work out the differences.

I will continue to fight President Obama’s executive overreach that has failed more than a dozen unanimous Supreme Court decisions in the past few years alone. I look forward to working with my colleagues on this legislation.”
