  • RPV Statement on the Passing of Former Chairman Pat Mullins

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Republicans across Virginia are shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden loss of our former Chairman, Pat Mullins. Pat steered our Party through some of its most difficult times, and his presence will be sorely missed.”

    “To spend time with Pat was to sit with a master storyteller, and savvy deal maker. There were few people he hadn’t met, and fewer still that he didn’t have a story about, which he was always more than happy to sit and tell. The only things he loved to talk about more than politics were his grandchildren, and his work with the therapeutic riding community.

    “For many of us, the indelible image of Pat Mullins isn’t a party chairman in a suit, but a loving grandfather spending time with his family at Lake Anna – and I know Pat wouldn’t have it any other way.”

    “Our prayers are with the entire Mullins family. Pat Mullins was a wonderful man, a great Virginian, and we are thankful for the short time we got to spend with him.”

  • Del. Lingamfelter’s 2015 General Assembly Report

    3 March 2015

    Dear Friends,

    I apologize for the length of this, but I hope you will read this important update on what happened this year during the General Assembly Session.  I want to be accountable to you, and a good way to do that is to share with you what happened this year in Richmond.  The good news is we are not like Washington.  We actually get things done, on time, responsibly, and in a conservative manner.  I hope you agree with me that what we did in Richmond this Session is how government should work.  Consider this:

     The 2015 General Assembly adjourned ahead of schedule this year-for the first time in 15 years-demonstrating the clear contrast between Richmond and Washington.  While Washington is gridlocked with partisanship, Republicans in Richmond are leading and governing.

     We also passed a conservative, responsible and, most importantly, balanced state budget that spends $1 billion less in general funds than last year’s originally-adopted budget.  We rejected the Governor’s effort to impose the Obamacare Medicaid expansion on Virginians.  And we reprioritized funding for pay raises for state employees, teachers, and state troopers.

    On jobs, the House of Delegates remains laser-focused on improving Virginia’s economy.   We passed legislation to attract innovative new companies to Virginia, make it possible for entrepreneurs to get the funding they need, fought to protect Virginia’s status as a right-to-work state, and defeated job-killing legislation that would hurt small businesses.

     In higher education, making college more affordable was a top priority this year. I supported several bills to do just that, including legislation to cap unreasonable mandatory student fees, encourage colleges to offer affordable “flat-fee” degrees, and make it easier for families to find the information they need about college costs.   The House budget also included additional funding for more in-state tuition slots, financial aid, and transfer-student grants.

     In k-12 education, we continue to reform and improve our public schools.  Our goal is to give every child a path to succeed in the classroom.  We passed legislation to expedite SOL re-take tests and require schools to submit less paperwork to Richmond.  The budget funds a 1.5% teacher pay raise.

    In transportation, the House of Delegates continues to increase accountability in our transportation system; working to protect taxpayer dollars.  This year we changed the formula used to decide how transportation dollars are spent, sending more money to local governments.   We also passed legislation to require transit projects to be reviewed based on their metrics-just like every other transportation project.

     We worked on several other important and challenging issues: ethics reform, legislation to aid victims and protect students from sexual assault on campus, and changes to Virginia’s Alcoholic Beverage Control System to make it run more like a business and not a bureaucracy.

     But we had some bad ideas show up as well.  The House defeated liberal efforts to enact Michael Bloomberg’s radical gun-control agenda, fought to hold Attorney General Mark Herring accountable for his actions, and defeated efforts to roll back Virginia’s pro-life informed consent statutes that protect mothers and innocent life.

     So all-in-all, I think this was a good year-if you agree with me-that conservative governance works best for all of Virginia.  I take this job very seriously, and you can bet the liberals will try to defeat me this year as they have tried in the past.  That is why I will be running a well-focused and energetic reelection campaign starting today.

     Sincerely,

    Scott

  • Robert’s Round-Up: The Federal Reserve Must Be Transparent and Accountable

    Website     Email Robert      Request Assistance       Request Flag     Visit Washington DC

    March 3, 2015

    Dear Friend,

    The Federal Reserve System supervises nearly all banking in the United States and plays a substantial role in the domestic and global economies. Since its creation in 1913, the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors has expanded its power, and its role in monetary policy has gone relatively unchecked. Given the impact that its policies can have on our economy, the Federal Reserve must be transparent and its leaders must be held accountable to the American people.

    Enhancing the transparency of the Federal Reserve will improve the public’s understanding of the decisions the Federal Reserve Board makes, which have a profound impact on the American people and our economy. I am a cosponsor of the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, which would require a full audit of the Board of Governors within the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Reserve banks by the Comptroller General of the United States.

    Until we can institute more transparent policies for the Federal Reserve, we must continue to provide rigorous congressional oversight. Last Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen testified before the House Financial Services Committee hearing entitled, “Monetary Policy and the State of the Economy.” I appreciate Chair Yellen’s testimony, particularly because I have serious concerns about Federal Reserve policies that make life more difficult for hardworking Americans and disproportionately diminish the ability of Main Street banks to provide vital capital in our rural communities.

    I am particularly concerned by the Dodd-Frank Act’s negative impacts and costs for community banks, small businesses, and consumers. A newly released Harvard study articulates how the Dodd-Frank Act has actually given Wall Street an advantage over Main Street – the exact opposite of what its proponents said it would do. The study found that since the enactment of Dodd-Frank, community banks’ share of the market has decreased due to the pressure of increased regulation. This means that community banks are providing fewer mortgages to customers and fewer loans to small businesses on our Main Streets.

    The study’s findings represent the impacts Fifth District Virginians have felt for years now. Though the Dodd-Frank Act was intended to rein in bad actors on Wall Street, instead, we have seen that it is disproportionately harming small Main Street banks, credit unions, and their customers by imposing one-size-fits-all regulatory schemes on community financial institutions. These regulatory impacts represent real costs and eliminate choices for consumers – both families and small businesses – on Main Streets from Chatham to Warrenton.

    The Federal Reserve has an obligation to tailor regulatory policy to account for the differences between large multinational institutions and smaller financial institutions and the customers they serve. During the hearing, I pressed Chair Yellen to explain what the Federal Reserve is doing to ensure that its system of regulation is not unduly impacting small financial institutions and dragging down our local economies as a result.

    I will continue to work with my colleagues on the Financial Services Committee to maintain robust congressional oversight of the Federal Reserve, and I remain committed to promoting policies that will incentivize economic growth to provide jobs and opportunities to all Fifth District Virginians.
