Heinz for Congress Airs Second Campaign Ad for CD2 Race
Tucson, Ariz. -- August 15, 2012 -- The Heinz for Congress Campaign launched its second television ad, titled "The Dumping Ground". The campaign ad is now in rotation with the campaign's first ad, "Bobbie's Law." They are airing on Comcast and Cox Cable in the CD2 communities of Tucson, Bisbee, Sierra Vista and Douglas, Ariz.
Rep. Ron Barber's first vote was in favor of passing H.R. 2578, an omnibus bill containing language from H.R. 1505, the National Security and Federal Lands Protection Act. It waives 16 land management laws and environmental protection policies under the guise of border security. In a report released by the Government Accountability Office, 22 of 26 Border Patrol Agents-in-Charge testified "federal land management laws had no impact on the overall security status of their jurisdiction."
H.R. 2578 was sponsored by Rep. Jeff Durham (R-Calif.) and H.R. 1505 was originally sponsored by Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah). Both Congressmen are members of the Tea Party Caucus. These provisions have been opposed by many environmental and conservation groups.
