09/30/2013 – Alabama DOT Holding Public Meeting on October 3rd

leave a comment »

The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) is holding an open-house public comments meeting to discuss the replacing of the Military Street (Highway 43) bridge over the Buttahatchee River in South Hamilton. The meeting, which is set for Thursday, Oct. 3, will also be used to discuss the extension of a five-lane road in the area. The hearing for the project will be held from 5-7 p.m. at the recreation center. In addition to replacing the current bridge, the five-lane section of the road will be extended southward to Marion County Road 35, also known as River Road. The replacement of the bridge is scheduled in September 2014, meaning the work will likely lap over into the early Fiscal Year 2015. This meeting will be of the open-house style format with no formal presentation. Interested persons may arrive anytime within the two-hour period. ALDOT personnel will be available to discuss the project, including right-of-way acquisition procedures. Display maps and relative environmental documents will also be available for review and inspection. People with disabilities who need special accommodations or assistance may contact Jud Young of ALDOT at (256) 389-1488. Written statements and other exhibits may be sent to ALDOT through Oct. 13, whether or not anyone goes to the meeting and makes statements there. Documents may be sent to James Brown, Second Division Engineer, Alabama Department of Transportation, P.O. Box 495, Tuscumbia, AL 35674.

09/26/2013 – Congressman Robert Aderholt / Defunding Obamacare, Keeping the Government Running

leave a comment »

The following is a Press Release from:
Congressman Robert Aderholt – Representing Alabama’s 4th District In Washington, D.C.

Defunding Obamacare, Keeping the Government Running
With October just around the corner, discussions in Washington over the past few weeks have focused on the impending implementation of Obamacare and the ever-nearing end of the fiscal year.

Even some democrats have said that the President’s health care law is a train wreck. It’s bad for Alabama families, it’s bad for small businesses, it’s bad for doctors and hospitals and it’s bad for our nation’s economy. That’s why when it came to the House floor for a vote in 2009, I voted against it. Since then I along with my Republican colleagues in the House have voted nearly 40 times to repeal, replace, dismantle or defund all or portions of Obamacare and every time the Senate has failed to act.

As you know, September 30th is the last day of the fiscal year—meaning the government will shut down on October 1st unless legislation, known as a Continuing Resolution (CR) is passed extending funding for federal operations.

Last week, with my strong support the House passed H.J.Res. 59, a Continuing Resolution that would keep the government running through December 15th and defund Obamacare.

On September 20th, the House did our job and now it is time for the Senate to do theirs and show the American people where they stand. It appears that the House will be in session in Washington throughout the weekend in hopes the Senate will finally act and we can get this done. As the clock ticks us days closer to the implementation of Obamacare and the end of the fiscal year, the time for the Senate to take real action is now—no more stalling, no more gimmicks.

Syria Update
As you are aware over the last few weeks, President Obama concluded that President Bashar al-Assad is in possession of and used chemical weapons against his own people in Syria. This situation brought great concern to the international community.

Instead of building an international coalition of allies willing to stand together against Syria’s action, President Obama decided to pursue unilateral military action that would have left the United States isolated in our approach in the Middle East. The President did not make a very clear case to the American people or to Congress as to why such action was warranted or how it would advance the interests of the United States.

After President Obama called on Congress to vote on a resolution authorizing military action in Syria, my colleagues and I heard overwhelmingly from folks across Alabama and the rest of the country that they did not want to see the United States getting involved in Syria. I could not have agreed more. Though no one wants to see chemical weapons in the hands of unpredictable leaders in hostile regions, it is unclear who is behind these rebel groups.

As you know, Congress never took that vote, because as President Obama was trying to make his case for military action leaders of other nations were working on diplomatic solutions to remove chemical weapons from Syria. President Putin of Russia proposed putting Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons under international control and President Assad has been amenable to that idea.

Since then, President Assad has openly admitted Syria is in possession of chemical weapons and Secretary of State John Kerry had been involved in diplomatic negotiations with Syrian officials and others in the international community. As this process continues, it is critical that international officials trust, but verify the existence and whereabouts of Syria’s chemical weapons and ensure that they are not only removed from Syria, but also secured from getting in the wrong hands.

Though the situation is not fully resolved yet, it seems as though it will be in the very near future and I am pleased it is being done through diplomatic means, rather than with military involvement.

Remembering 9/11
It has been twelve years since a group determined through hate made a cowardly attack on the United States that killed so many innocent Americans who were just trying to do their jobs. Last year, we lost four more Americans at the hands of terrorists and extremists through an attack on our Embassy in Benghazi, Libya.

We must never forget the victims of these attacks and the families and friends they left behind. While we have been tested by these senseless acts of violence, our resiliency and resolve will never waiver and America continues to shine as a beacon of freedom around the world.
