Washington, D.C. - To the Editor:
I applaud your call for Congress to get serious about ethics reform. In January, I joined with three colleagues to introduce House Resolution 659, a reform package that addresses the two specific abuses you mentioned:
Washington, D.C. - Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed an amendment to prohibit a permanent U.S. military presence in Iraq. The vote came on the heels of Rep. David Price's sharp questioning of General John Abizaid, the U.S. Army's top commander in the Middle East, about long-term U.S. policy in Iraq.

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Representative David Price (NC) was less than satisfied with the U.S. Navy's position on an Outlying Landing Field in Washington County, NC.
Washington, D.C. - As a member of the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, I am pushing for additional oversight of the DPW purchase, including the required 45-day investigation
Washington, D.C. - U.S. Representative David Price (D-NC) had sharp questions about the poor performance of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, whose huge department includes FEMA, testified before Price's Homeland Security Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee.
Washington, D.C. - "President Bush's 2007 Budget draws a very clear picture of who this Administration values and it's not the average American family," said U.S. Representative David Price (D-NC).
"Unless we enact meaningful and comprehensive reforms of the way this chamber conducts its business, Jack Abramoff will be the least of our concerns."
Washington, D.C. - The Triangle Business Journal conducted a non-scientific poll from Jan. 25 through Jan. 31 to help determine who, among the region's Congressional delegates, is the most effective.
Our readers were asked, "Who do you think is the most effective North Carolina congressional delegate serving the Triangle?"
Washington, D.C. - Mr. Speaker, I first want to commend my colleague from California for introducing this first step toward reining in the culture of corruption that's been laid bare by the various scandals currently surrounding this institution. I know that broader lobbying reform is on the way.
