Congressman Hank Johnson's E-Newsletter for March 29, 2018
Congressman Johnson speaks to constituents at an IRS Annual Free File event at Stonecrest Library this week.
HOLDING FACEBOOK ACCOUNTABLE: Like many of you, I was concerned after reading about Cambridge Analytica’s collection and misuse of private user data on Facebook. As the ranking member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet, I’m urging Chairman Bob Goodlatte to call Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify before the committee to discuss protecting Facebook users’ personal data.

CONGRESS MUST PASS SPECIAL COUNSEL INTEGRITY ACT: Recently, I joined my Judiciary colleagues to discuss threats to the Special Counsel’s investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 elections. The President’s attacks on Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Justice Department are unacceptable and unfounded. Mr. Mueller has an outstanding record of integrity and patriotism. He is a highly decorated former Marine who fought in Vietnam. As U.S. Attorney, he served under both Democratic and Republican presidents and built a reputation for fearlessly going after corruption and sticking to facts. For more, click HERE.
GOP MUST HELP US IMPROVE HEALTHCARE, NOT SABOTAGE IT: On the eighth anniversary of President Obama’s signing of the Affordable Care Act, I call on Republicans to stop their sabotage and instead protect and improve Americans’ health care by working to lower Americans’ health care costs, including taking action on Democrats’ A Better Deal to lower the cost of prescription drugs proposal.

2018 CONGRESSIONAL ART COMPETITION: The deadline is approaching for year’s Congressional Art Competition, which is open to all high school students who reside or attend a school in Georgia’s Fourth Congressional District. Each year, we gain a new appreciation for every piece of art entered for our annual competition because no matter what colors the students use, no matter their interpretation, this is their art.

PRESERVING NET NEUTRALITY: I recently signed the Congressional Review Act resolution to overturn the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) wrongheaded decision in 2017 to undermine Internet openness through its rescission of net neutrality rules. The time for strong net neutrality rules is now. For more, click HERE.
