http://RealityReport.TV | | In this Legislative Action Alert, Gary breaks down 5 bills you should be looking out for. Transcript below.

Hello, I'm Gary Franchi, and this is a special legislative action alert.
Bills are being introduced in the House and Senate left and right. I want to present and shed some light on a few that we think you should be paying attention to.

Let's start off with H.R. 6145 introduced by Rep. Jason Chaffetez from Utah on September 16th, and it's sister bill, S. 3791 which has 3 co-sponsors and was introduced by Sen. Tom Coburn from Oklahoma on September 15th

The bills summary states:

"To require Members of Congress to disclose delinquent tax liability, require an ethics inquiry, and garnish the wages of a Member with Federal tax liability."

Section three details that within 30 days after filing, the member must "arrange with the Secretary of the Senate or the Clerk of the House of Representatives, as appropriate, and the Internal Revenue Service to have their salary REDUCED by an amount appropriate to pay the taxes owed to the United States within a reasonable time period."

Support H.R. 6145 and S. 3791. They are small but pivotal steps to stop corruption in the government.

Now lets take a look at a bill similar to H.R. 6145 and S. 3791. It's S. 3790, also introduced by Sen. Tom Coburn from Oklahoma on September 15th with 4 co-sponsors. The summary states:

"A bill to amend title 5, United States Code, to provide that persons having seriously delinquent tax debts shall be ineligible for Federal employment."

According to Section 7381 part b, the ineligibility for federal employment applies to future and current employees, which means it can KEEP the bums out, and KICK some of them out too! These include the Secretary of Treasury, Timothy Geithner, Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, and 39 other Presidential Executive Office employees. All together they owe over $830,000.

So, support ; S. 3790!

Here are two bills being passed around right now that I know people aren't happy with. The first is S. 510, introduced by Sen. Dick Durbin from Illinois on March 3rd 2009 with 20 co-sponsors. The bill is refered to as the FDA Food Safety and Modernization Act which is "A bill to amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act with respect to the safety of the food supply."

Let me read you a few sections from S. 510…

Here is Section 420, part b, number 3. "In the interest of national security, the secretary of health and human services, in consultation with the secretary of Homeland security, may determine the tone and manner in which the guidance documents issued under paragraph (1) are made public, including by releasing such documents to targeted audiences."

This section could allow for cover-ups and incompetence by allowing food-related government reports to be classified under the banner "national security.

And in section 306, part C, number 5, and in Section 404, the bill seeks to "harmonize" U.S. policy with the international Codex Alimentarius and the World Trade Organization - a backdoor means to world government.

I urge you to oppose S. 510.

The second bill that is a hot topic is S. 3628, introduced by Sen. Chuck Schumer from New York on July 21st with 7 co-sponsors. The bill is commonly known as the disclose act. The summary states the the disclose act's purpose is

"to amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to prohibit foreign influence in Federal elections, to prohibit government contractors from making expenditures with respect to such elections, and to establish additional disclosure requirements with respect to spending in such elections, and for other purposes."

Take a look at this previous action alert on the disclose Act.

The right choice would be to oppose S. 3628

Now, to end on a good note, a bill to watch out for is H.R. 6134 introduced by Rep. Mike Coffman from Colorado on September 15th and currently has no co-sponsors.

If passed the bill provides:

"for a 10 percent reduction in pay for Members of Congress; to make Federal civilian employees subject to a period of mandatory unpaid leave, and to reduce appropriations for salaries and expenses for offices of the legislative branch, during fiscal year 2011; and for other purposes."

According to section 1, the pay reduction would apply to each senator, member of the house of representatives, delegate to the house of representatives, the resident commissioner from Puerto Rico, the senate president, the majority and minority leader of the senate and the house, and lastly the speaker of the house.

H.R. 6134 is a bill you definitely want to support!

So, whether you oppose, or support any one, or all of these bills, contact your congressman or woman, at contacting the and let them know what you want.
