Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA) released the following statement upon the passage of H.Res. 964:
"This is a positive step toward restoring our constitutional order and reigning in this out-of-control president. Since the Democratic Senate is unwilling to stand up for its Congressional authority, the House has been forced to act on its own to restore the balance of power in our federal government."
H.Res. 964 authorizes a lawsuit against the president and other executive branch officials for actions inconsistent with their duties under the Constitution.
Congressman Kingston represents south Georgia and is a senior member of the Appropriations Committee.
