Collins statement on H.R. 1663 – House Judiciary Committee

“[The Foundation of the Federal Bar Association Charter Amendments Act] makes necessary amendments to the Federal Bar Association’s Charter to allow for it to move its principal office outside of Washington D.C., expand its ability to provide legal education and clarify expectations for directors, officers, members and employees of the Federal Bar Association.”

WASHINGTON — Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, gave the following statement on the House floor regarding the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association Charter Amendments Act of 2019, H.R. 1663.

Below are the remarks as prepared.

Ranking Member Collins: Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of H.R. 1663, the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association Charter Amendments Act of 2019.

The Federal Bar Association was founded in 1920 to advance the science of jurisprudence and to promote the welfare, interests, education and professional development of all attorneys involved in federal practice.

Congress chartered the Federal Bar Association in 1954, and, since that time, it has served as a network of federal practitioners across the country and led many changes to improve the federal legal system.

Today’s legislation makes necessary amendments to the Federal Bar Association’s Charter to allow for it to move its principal office outside of Washington D.C., expand its ability to provide legal education and clarify expectations for directors, officers, members and employees of the Federal Bar Association.

I’d like to thank Congressman Steve Chabot and Congressman Jamie Raskin for their work on this legislation and for their support of the Federal Bar Association.
