WASHINGTON, DC - Today, the House of Representatives adopted the Smith Amendment to the State Department authorization bill, which will prevent the United States from contributing to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). Rep. Carolyn Maloney (NY-14) made the following statement:
WASHINGTON, DC - More resources and direction are needed from the federal government to secure America's hometowns, testified an unprecedented collection of local officials, first responders and experts involved in hometown security today on Capitol Hill. As Congress debated the Homeland Security appropriations bill, witnesses appearing at the Democratic Task Force on Homeland Security's public forum on hometown security clearly sent the message that Congress has placed too much of the burden of fighting terrorism on local governments.
WASHINGTON, DC - A bill introduced by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (NY-14) and Rep. Brad Sherman (CA-27) would eliminate tax write-offs for corporations that use the 24 all-male golf clubs in the United States clubs for business purposes. Martha Burk, Chair of the National Council of Women's Organizations and critic of Augusta National Golf Club for its discriminatory policies, has worked closely with Reps. Maloney and Sherman, and she joined them today to announce the bill's introduction.
