Reps. Tom Tancredo and Mark Souder are seeking broader sponsorship on a bill that would formally recognize Taiwan and essentially scrap our "One China" policy in favor of a "One China, One Taiwan" policy.
Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ) introduced the Financial Customer Identification Verification Improvement Act (HR815), which would prohibit the use of identification cards issued by foreign governments, including matricula consular cards, for purposes of verifying the identity of a person who wants to open an account at a U.S. financial institution.
Rep. Roscoe Bartlett reintroduced HR43, to restore the celebration of George Washington's birthday to a federal holiday and effectively end "President's Day"- which the federal government never officially recognized, it should be noted.
Call your representatives and senators and let them know what YOU think.
