Washington, D.C.—Today, U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) released the following statement after joining the entire Colorado delegation in supporting and adopting Rep. Ed Perlmutter’s (D-CO) concurrent resolution, H. Con. Res. 134, to condemn the atrocious shooting that took place in Aurora, Colorado.

“The sadness touching the Aurora community stretches across the nation, yet we stand together in condemning this senseless act of violence,” said Congressman Gosar. “The victims and families impacted by the theater tragedy remain in my thoughts and prayers. The first responders, nurses and doctors who saved lives deserve our greatest thanks. To the community of Aurora, the nation stands behind you in coping and recovering. May justice be served, and may those who lost their lives always be remembered.”

The concurrent resolution condemns the heinous movie theater atrocity, thanks the first responders and other officials who offered their support to save lives, and honors the victims and the resilient community impacted by the tragedy.


Congressman Paul Gosar Votes to End Business as Usual and “Audit the Fed”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) voted for the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, H.R. 459. This bill, which was introduced by Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) and co-sponsored by Congressman Gosar, passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a bipartisan vote of 327 to 98.

Congressman Gosar played an active role in advancing the “audit the fed” legislation to the House floor. In addition to being an early cosponsor of the legislation, he was instrumental in passing the legislation through the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

“The decisions made and executed by the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors affect the monetary policy of the entire nation, yet for too long these activities have been carried out in secret,” said Congressman Gosar. “Though the Federal Reserve is only a quasi-government entity, quasi-transparency is unacceptable to the American people. The continued secrecy surrounding the actions of the Federal Reserve is exactly the type of ‘business as usual’ my freshman class was sent to Washington to end, which is what makes today’s vote so important.”

The Federal Reserve Transparency Act would provide the congressional oversight, through the Government Accountability Office, to audit the monetary actions of the quasi-private Federal Reserve. Current law prohibits full congressional access and review of the Federal Reserve’s lending practices.

Current restrictions on GAO audits include the examination of any transactions made under the Federal Reserve’s open market operations and Federal Open Market Committee directives, any deliberations and discussions on monetary policy, or any agreements made with foreign governments and central banks. Since the 2008 financial crisis, the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet has tripled to $3 trillion dollars. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act, H.R. 459 will remove restrictions and require a one-time audit within 12 months of enactment.


Rep. Paul Gosar Supports Legislation to End Energy Tax Subsidies

The Energy Freedom and Economic Prosperity Act Ends the Federal Practice of Picking Winners and Losers in the Energy Sector 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressmen Paul Gosar (R-AZ) announced he has cosponsored the Energy Freedom and Economic Prosperity Act (H.R.3308) introduced by fellow freshman Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-KS).  H.R. 3308 will reduce government interference in the energy sector by repealing all energy tax credits.

“The federal government has no business picking winners and losers in the energy sector,” said Rep. Gosar.  “Mr. Pompeo’s bill eliminates these wasteful subsidies while concurrently lowering taxes for job creators.  Our nation can create jobs and implement an all-of-the-above energy strategy without subsidizing any form of energy production.”

As one of the top watchdogs on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Congressman Gosar has fought to expose the Department of Energy’s mismanagement of the Management of Loan Guarantee Programs.  The investigations into Solyndra have made it clear that the Obama Administration ignored merit-based considerations in order to push a political agenda, leaving the taxpayer still on the hook for millions of dollars.

Additionally, Congressman Gosar has voted to end the federal government’s practice of picking winners and losers in the energy sector.  Last month, hevoted to eliminate the account used by the Department of Energy to issue its preferential loans and put the $1.45 billion in savings toward deficit reduction.  He also voted to block all future loans under Section 1703 of the Title 17 loan guarantee program.

Last week, Congressman Gosar introduced The Public Lands Renewable Energy Development Act of 2012legislation that streamlines permitting for renewable energy projects on public lands, facilitates job creation, and reduces the deficit.  The Congressman knows our nation can put forth a bold all-of-the-above energy plan without subsidizing any form of energy production.



Club for Growth Launches Attack Ad Against Paul Gosar in CD-4

Rep. Paul Gosar and House Hold Holder in Contempt

Washington, D.C.—Today, U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S (R-AZ) released the following statement regarding the full vote by the U.S. House of Representatives to hold U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. This vote is the result of continuous delays by Holder and the Department of Justice to release subpoenaed documents from the reckless Operation Fast and Furious.

Gosar said today, “Mr. Holder’s actions have shown his contempt for our constitutional rights, our border, Arizonans and all Americans and today Congress did its job by holding him in contempt. It is my hope today’s vote to sends a strong message to Attorney General Holder, President Obama and future bureaucrats that no one is above the law. After months of stonewalling, excuses and half truths Mr. Holder has run out of time and second chances.”

“The people of Arizona and throughout the United States and Mexico will be living with the consequences of Fast and Furious for years to come. Many have rightfully lost confidence in Attorney General Holder. Today’s vote further supports my Resolution of No Confidence (H.Res.490) in Mr. Holder which has the support of 114 members of Congress who each co-sponsored the measure.”

As the only member from Arizona on the committee for Oversight and Government Reform, Congressman Gosar has been a leading advocate for the victims of this horrible operation by demanding answers and justice. Gosar is the lead sponsor of H. Res. 490, a Resolution of No Confidence in the Attorney General which currently has 114 cosponsors.

Congressman Gosar Votes to Get Big Government Out of The Way

Legislation will grow the economy, protect the environment and promote renewable energy production 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar, DDS (R-AZ) voted for the Conservation and Economic Growth Act (H.R.2578) a package of 14 Natural Resources Committee bills that will create new American jobs, grow the economy, and protect the environment.

“Each of these bills has one thing in common; they get the Federal Government out of the way of Arizona’s families and businesses. I represent rural Arizona and over the past year I have met with thousands of people in my district who have asked me to stop the unnecessary government intervention in their lives,” said Congressman Paul Gosar. 

“These bills allow our ranchers to prosper, permit our Border Patrol to better protect our border, and give states more power in utilizing resources to support public target ranges. Unnecessary federal regulations are stifling job creation and slowing down progress throughout Arizona. I will continue to do whatever I can to free Arizonans from the grip of federal bureaucrats that are out of touch with our great state.”

The Conservation and Economic Growth Act includes three particular pieces of legislation that address the priorities of rural Arizonans.  Congressman Gosar has long advocated for these bills, helping navigate them out of the House Natural Resources Committee.

1) The “Grazing Improvement Act of 2012” (Title XI) (H.R. 4234) which will improves and streamlines the process for renewing livestock grazing permits. It also extends the life of permits to provide more certainty and stability to the livestock grazing community in the face of constant environmental legal challenges.  Read the full text of H.R. 4234, the “Grazing Improvement Act of 2012” here.

2) The “National Security and Federal Lands Protection Act” (Title XIV) (H.R. 1505): This bill is a common sense measure to improve border security by ensuring that Border Patrol has access to federal lands along the border and is not held back from doing its job by bureaucratic red tape. Read the full text of H.R. 1505, the “National Security and Federal Lands Protection Act” here.

3) The “Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act” (Title XII) (H.R. 3065): This bill supports recreational shooting by providing states greater flexibility to use their Pittman-Robertson funds to establish, expand and maintain public target ranges.  Read the full text of H.R. 3065, the “Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act” here.

Congressman Gosar Reacts to Obama Admin. Distortion of Facts

“The people of Arizona and America deserve better” 

PHOENIX, AZ –U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S (R-AZ) released the following statement today in response to the recently-discovered internal emails that suggest the Obama Administration deliberately overstated the environmental impacts of uranium mining to justify its 20-year ban on uranium development on one million acres of federal land in Northern Arizona:

“When the Obama Administration announced their one million acre land-grab earlier this year, I said their actions distorted the truth and outright denied the facts in order to push their big government agenda.  Nearly six months later, my committee has discovered documents that suggest the National Park Service had the scientific evidence, collected by the agency itself, detailing the reality of government deception.  

Today’s reports come at a time when residents of rural Arizona continue to face record unemployment and the need for jobs.  The Obama Administration’s ban should be reversed, and the people of Arizona should be allowed to move forward with these important economic development projects.  These mines could provide over 1,000 high-paying jobs, generate $29 billion in economic output, and would have many other indirect economic benefits that would revitalize our region. 

The people of Arizona and of America deserve better than junk science and political cover up.  They deserve a government that is responsible to the people and focuses on facts, not scare tactics and misinformation.  As a member of the House Natural Resources Committee, I will continue efforts to expose the Administration’s misinformation campaign and to work to spur economic development in Arizona.” 

On January 9th, 2012, the Obama Administration announced it would impose a 20-year ban on uranium mining on one million acres of federal land in Arizona—one of the most uranium-rich areas in the United States.  Internal emails obtained by the House Natural Resources Committee raise significant questions into the science used by the Obama Administration to justify its ban.  In the emails, scientists within the National Park Service discuss how the potential environmental impacts were “grossly overestimated” in the Administration’s record of decision and that the potential impacts were “very minor to negligible.”  More information on the House Natural Resources Committee’s findings can be found here.

Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) have introduced the “Northern Arizona Mining Continuity Act of 2011,” known as H.R. 3155.  The bill would reverse the Secretary of the Interior’s 20-year ban.
