Check out the full article on the Bossier Press-Tribune’s website here. Below are excerpts of what Mike said about each of his three key proposed bills.
Johnson said the following regarding the Oath Act:
“This resolution is simple. It would require witnesses before all House Committees to take the same oath that is used in every courtroom in America, from small claims court all the way to the Supreme Court, when testifying before Congress. Earlier this year, Democrats blocked this simple amendment to our Judiciary Committee Rules, even though several other House Committees already have this requirement.”
Johnson said the following regarding the History and Tradition Protection Act:
“For years, leftist organizations have engaged in a search and destroy mission for all religious symbols and expression in our country, and they have been incentivized to do so by the prospect of large attorney fee awards. My bill removes the perverse financial incentive for these groups and their lawyers to advance their radical agenda, which will help us preserve what’s left of our religious heritage and cherished national traditions.”
Johnson said the following regarding the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act:
“Since the Biden Administration has taken actions to expand abortion in America, it is the responsibility of Congress to defend the unborn. This bill will help protect minors from any attempts to circumvent parental notification or consent laws. I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues during this Congress to advance additional legislation to highlight and safeguard the sanctity of every human life.”
