The Justice for Victims of IRS Scams and Identity Theft Act of 2018, authored by Congressman David Young, passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 403-3 today.
Iowa Congressman David Young's legislation, the Justice for Victims of IRS Scams and Identity Theft Act of 2018, was debated today in the U.S. House of Representatives. A vote is expected Wednesday.
The bill would require the Attorney General and Treasury Secretary to submit reports to Congress detailing how they have prosecuted identity theft crimes and what resources are needed to assist victims of identity theft and fraud. The reports will also include recommendations on how the federal government can better combat identity theft.
On March 23, 2018, President Trump signed legislation funding the government until the end of the fiscal year. The bill was not perfect and the process was not ideal. However, Iowans didn’t send me to Congress to complain about the process – they sent me to Congress to work to make it better where I can. They sent me to make sure our policies and programs help Iowans.
Iowa Congressman David Young issued the following statement after voting to pass the Fiscal Year 18 Appropriations bill:
"This bill includes a number of provisions which will help Iowans by rebuilding our military, securing our homeland, combating the opioid crisis, and securing our schools.
"After years of neglect, our soldiers are getting a pay raise and the resources they need to train, fight, win, and return to their families. We help secure our border and stem the flow of illegal goods into our country.
Since the horrific tragedy last month at a school in Parkland, Florida, and even before then, Americans are asking questions and looking for answers. For me and many others, a significant question remains: what appropriate steps should the federal government take to protect our children and employees at schools?
For Iowans and all Americans, the end of the year is a time of reflection and looking ahead. This past year, our communities and nation have experienced trials and triumphs – not unlike those felt by Iowa families. In Congress, I’ve had the opportunity to honor Iowans rising to challenges they’ve faced or fighting to better our communities.
