Royce Votes to Reduce Gas Prices 

Last week, the House passed the North American-Made Energy Security Act, with Rep. Royce’s vote.  The bill reduces the cost of gas and boosts the economy.  Specifically, it allows the Keystone XL pipeline to obtain a federal permit to import over 1.3 million barrels of oil a day from Canada to U.S. refineries—creating tens of thousands of U.S. construction jobs.  At a time when unemployment is at 9.2% and oil cost $100 a barrel, it is time to cut economy crushing regulations in Washington so that businesses can create jobs and families can afford their day-to-day living expenses. Click here for information on House Republican energy efforts.  

Royce Supports HALT Act 

The ‘Hinder the Administration’s Legalization Temptation Act’ (HALT Act) that Rep. Royce cosponsored opposes President Obama’s use of Executive branch authority to legally evade federal immigration laws.  Last month, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued two policy directives that allow Department of Homeland Security officers’ the ability to exercise ‘prosecutorial discretion’ when dealing with illegal immigrants.  The policy details when not to stop, question, arrest, or detain immigrants and when to dismiss a removal proceeding.  For the administration to pick and choose which laws to follow and which laws to evade is unacceptable.  To learn more click here. 


A year ago, Treasury Secretary Geithner wrote his infamous "Welcome To The Recovery" op-ed in the New York Times.  Do you think we're in recovery?
