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.

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 ...

House, Senate Leaders Introduce Bill to Empower and Protect Probation Officers
Washington, D.C.— Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA) joined Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-NJ) and Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Dianne Feinstein, (D-CA), in introducing a bill today to protect probation officers and enhance their ability to do their job by giving them authority to arrest a third party who forcibly interferes with an officer’s performance of his or her official duties. Under current law, a probation officer may arrest a probationer or individual on supervised release if the officer has probable cause to believe the offender has violated a condition of his or her probation or release. However, current law does not address a probation officer’s arrest authority in situations where a third party attempts to physically obstruct the officer or cause the officer physical harm. When a probation officer encounters an uncooperative or violent third party, the officer may be forced to retreat because the officer lacks authority to restrain the third party, exposing the office

Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA) made the following statement after the Ways and Means Committee considered several bills to protect children and taxpayer identity, the Recovering Missing Children Act and the Stolen Identity Refund Fraud Prevention Act. Both bills passed out of the Committee with strong bipartisan support. “I spent a large part of my career investigating the disappearance of missing children and young women, and one of the hardest things I ever had to do was tell parents that their child was not coming home. But one of the greatest feelings I have ever experienced in my life and in my career, was telling parents that we had found their child alive and healthy. The Recovering Missing Children Act would provide law enforcement with a powerful additional tool, which could save lives and save parents from heartbreak,” said Rep. Reichert. “I am pleased that today the Committee also took steps to address the rapidly growing problem of identity

The Miscellaneous Tariff Bill is a jobs bill," said Rep. Reichert.  "It cuts taxes on American manufacturers allowing them to produce more American-made products, create and keep more jobs here in the U.S., and lower prices for American families.  I am proud to champion this
