Congressman Goodlatte Statement in Celebration of Constitution Day
Today Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) issued the following statement in honor of Constitution Day, which was first observed in 2005.
Congressman Goodlatte: “The Constitution was signed by our nation’s founders on September 17th, 1787. This document, signed 231 years ago, embodied the commitment to protect our God-given liberties. As we reflect this Constitution Day, we must remember how this great nation began.
“As a Member of Congress and Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, our Constitution is at the forefront of my mind every day. Now more than ever, it is essential that both Republican and Democratic Members of Congress be reminded of the Constitution’s provisions and the oaths all Members have taken to uphold the protections it contains for the sacred rights of every American.
“I hope all Americans are inspired to reflect this Constitution Day on the remarkable document that continues to be the foundation of our government.”
