Collins Statement on DOJ Ending Operation Choke Point

Aug 18, 2017

WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) today issued a statement on the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) decision to end Operation Choke Point:

“As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, I have worked over the last several years to shed light on Operation Choke Point and to bring the misguided effort to a close. The program targeted legitimate businesses with which the Obama Administration took issue, harming these businesses and abusing federal authority to punish certain industries.

“I welcome the DOJ's move to end Operation Choke Point and to correct a policy that was hostile to many businesses and to the Second Amendment.”
