Reichert makes right vote on oil shale


The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a bill that would open up to two million acres of western public land for oil shale. For over a century, industry has tried to produce commercial oil from shale with no success, but those research projects have ruined air, water, and land resources. But there’s no oil in oil shale – it’s a rock. Ironically, some in Congress want to fund repairs to our crumbling transportation infrastructure with oil shale revenue, but the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said the oil shale provisions would generate ZERO revenue ...

Reichert Statement on Administration Intervention in West Coast Ports Shutdown
Washington, D.C. – After the Administration's announcement that the Secretary of Labor would be heading to California to join the talks between the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU), U.S. Congressman Dave Reichert (WA-8) issued the following statement: "The situation at the West Coast Ports has reached a critical point and is impacting the economic health not just of the Pacific Northwest or even the West Coast, but the entire nation. After repeatedly raising this issue with the Administration and encouraging the President to take a more active role, I am pleased to see he is now taking steps to urge the ILWU and PMA to resolve their ongoing dispute and ‎come to terms. We cannot afford to let our farmers, workers, and manufacturers continue to lose business and market share."

Washington, D.C. – Last week U.S. Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA) with Congressmen Schrader (D-OR), Newhouse (R-WA), and Costa (D-CA) introduced a bipartisan resolution in the House urging an end to the contract negotiation between the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU). Now, just a week later, the resolution has been signed by 61 members of Congress. The members said, “This past weekend we saw the situation at the West Coast Ports continue to escalate to the point that the Secretary of Labor joined in the negotiations, urging a quick resolution. This is a good step, but the crisis facing not just the West Coast, but the entire nation, is very real. The fact that over 60 members have joined our resolution within the past week shows that Americans from across the country are being impacted. Both sides must reach an agreement as soon as possible. Our national economy in jeopardy.” The resolution is a follow up to several l

It is my hope that we can quickly begin to address the backlog of cargo at ports up and down the coast. We have high-quality goods waiting to be exported to countries around the world. While this is promising news, there is further work to be done. We have seen firsthand how important the efficient movement of goods is to Washington’s farmers, workers, and exporters and their ability to grow and succeed. Now, we must turn our attention to ensuring that they are not put in such a situation again.”
