Gosar amendment to end abuses of Operation Choke Point

FAIRFAX, Va. – Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement urging members of the House of Representatives to support an amendment by U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) to H.R. 766 to help end abuses of Operation Choke Point:

"ALG strongly supports Representative Gosar's common sense amendment to the H.R. 766 protecting customers of financial institutions by increasing transparency between them and the federal government. The federal government has no constitutional power to take actions against individuals with due process, and Gosar's amendment will ensure that if a financial institution does take any action against an individual or business terminating their account at the behest of the feds, it must notify the customer why it is doing so."
