April 18, 2018 Press Release
"The bureaucratic failures of the IRS were on full display yesterday as they were unable to perform even a basic duty on their most critical day of the year. Another way the IRS is failing North Carolina taxpayers is with lack of accountability. Run for almost a decade by Commissioners who spent more time misleading Congress and attempting to bury scandals than they did serving Americans, the IRS has operated under a different set of rules than what they expect from taxpayers. The Ditto Act forces accountability on the IRS and ensures that they are working under the same rules as the people and businesses of North Carolina."

"Incarceration statistics paint a grim picture of the nightmare millions face: 2.7 million children under the age of 18 have an incarcerated parent; there are more jails than colleges in the United States; non-violent drug offenses account for almost half of the total population in federal prisons; and taxpayers spend more than $70 billion each year to incarcerate 1 in 100 American adults," Walker and Richmond write. "Even worse, these wasted dollars make us all less safe. We have the opportunity to restore families and help people find redemption instead of condemnation."

The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017 (FOSTA) will give law enforcement and victims new tools to fight sex trafficking. Walker has been a leader in Congress on combatting human trafficking.
April 13, 2018 Press Release
"Helping our North Carolina farmers through trade means removing barriers, opening new markets and ensuring a level playing field. When we get government restrictions and bad policies out of the way, our premier North Carolina products can shine and our people can thrive. I applaud President Trump and the administration for working to open the Argentinian market to our pork producers."
April 12, 2018 Press Release
“Part of the reason I ran for Congress was frustration with Washington’s inability to spend within its means and show fiscal leadership. That is why I made a pledge to the people of North Carolina to push for a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution."
April 12, 2018 Press Release
The McClatchy D.C. Bureau highlighted Rep. Walker's efforts to increase diversity and engagement on Capitol Hill through Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). As the article states: "[Vashti] Hinton, a North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University graduate, recently landed a job in the office of Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., the first full time hire from a unique three-year-old internship program created by Reps. Alma Adams, D-N.C., and Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., to help improve Congress’ poor showing when it comes to staff diversity."
April 11, 2018 Press Release
"The release of the 2017 ‘Nation’s Report Card’ shows the stark reality that we are failing to prepare our children to live prosperous lives and ultimately pushing the American Dream out of reach. This report is not an indictment on the teachers and administrators who work passionately to serve our students, but ultimately highlights the failures of a system of bureaucratic mandates and one-size-fits-all policies that prioritize meeting arbitrary standards rather than what is best for each student."
April 11, 2018 Press Release
"The tides of Washington come and go, but family is forever. It is with this in mind that Speaker Ryan has decided to not seek re-election and invest the same time and energy he put into representing Wisconsin into his family. Paul’s character and integrity is respected among all members. With that said, he is still Speaker through January and we have plenty of work to do. As we look to the future we must also be diligent with the present working on the impending concerns of reining in Washington’s spending, balancing our budgets, providing second chances through criminal justice reform, and working to restore the hope and opportunity of the American Dream.”
April 5, 2018 Press Release
“Alex saw a need in our community and instead of convincing himself of why it couldn’t be done, he sprung to action, collaborating with others to find a solution that will result in 100,000 meals being provided to hungry students each year. Heroism isn’t about age, it’s about a heart of service and a willingness to put yourself before others. Alex embodies this spirit and the idea that age and capacity do not exempt anyone from the call to make a difference.”
March 27, 2018 Press Release
“Right now, North Carolina taxpayers are having their hard-earned money wasted by federal bureaucrats who have been told how to improve and become more efficient, but refuse to follow recommendations. That is unacceptable. This bipartisan legislation will make government better, more accountable, and save taxpayer dollars.”
