WASHINGTON, D.C. , May 19, 2017 | Andre Castro (202-225-6105) | comments

U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) issued the following statements regarding some of the issues happening this week in Washington:

On Appointment of Special Counsel:
“I welcome the appointment of former-FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel and have confidence that he will lead a thorough and fair investigation. I also continue to have confidence in the ongoing House and Senate Intelligence Committees’ investigations. It is time to put anonymously sourced stories and unverified rumors to bed and reveal all of the facts regarding any possible Russian involvement in our election. In the meantime, Congress will continue to tackle the important issues facing hardworking American families.”   

On Passage of Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act:
“Bashar al-Assad needs to know that there are consequences for his atrocities. That is why the House passed the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act, which imposes substantial sanctions on the Assad regime and its prominent supporters. It is vital that we hold these war criminals accountable and work to ease the suffering of the Syrian people.”

On FCC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking:
“I applaud the FCC’s efforts to roll back the Obama era’s flawed regulatory structure for the internet. The 2015 Net Neutrality Title II classification threatens openness and hinders internet investment and innovation. The FCC’s new Notice of Proposed Rulemaking begins the process of returning the internet to a free and open system for all Americans. This new proposal would reinstate the bipartisan framework that for 20 years created the innovative environment that gave us the internet we know today. We must ensure that the internet continues to be an open ecosystem and economic engine for hardworking American families.”

On North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA):
“Given that NAFTA is over 20 years old, I feel that it is perfectly appropriate to look into updating and improving its terms to better represent a  21st century America. By updating NAFTA we can improve economic growth and create more opportunity for America’s workers, farmers, ranchers, manufacturers and job creators."
