Representative Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) serves on the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet and the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice. From his service in the military, as a federal prosecutor, and currently as a member of Congress, Rep. DeSantis has been a strong defender of our Constitution.
In January, Rep. DeSantis introduced the Faithful Execution of the Law Act (H.R. 3973). This legislation strengthens current law and promotes transparency and honesty in the federal government by requiring all federal officials who establish or implement a formal or informal policy to refrain from enforcing a federal law to report to Congress on the reason for the non-enforcement.
The Faithful Executive of the Law Act passed the House of Representatives on March 13, 2014 by a vote of 244-171. For more on what the Committee is doing to rein in executive overreach, click here.
