Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Today Congressman Jeff Duncan introduced a Constitutional amendment, H.J. Res 98, that would require Members of Congress, the Administration, and Judicial branch to abide by all laws just like the rest of the public. H.J Res. 98 is the companion legislation to Senator Rand Paul's S.J. Res. 25.

"This amendment is about fundamental fairness for the American people. Government officials should live under the law just like everyone else. I am proud to work with Senator Paul to bring transparency and accountability to all three branches of government. An important feature of this bill is that it also brings the Administration and the courts under the same laws as all other Americans."

"No one in government should be above the law. The Paul-Duncan effort will ensure that Congress lives under all the laws they write."
