Hastings’ Impact Aid Proposals Advance

The House Committee on Education and Workforce passed H.R. 3990 the Encouraging Innovation and Effective Teachers Act. Included in this legislation were two critical provisions supported by Congressman Doc Hastings to reform the Impact Aid program so that it better serves federally impacted schools in Central Washington and throughout the nation. First, this bill includes language from H.R. 3896, which was introduced by Hastings on February 2nd of this year to ensure that the most federally impacted school districts are eligible to apply for emergency assistance for school construction ...

Hastings steered fed. money for project near his property

For Republican Rep. Doc Hastings, it made good sense to secure a $750,000 earmark in 2009 for the city of Pasco, Wash.: It would help replace a deteriorating, 74-year-old underpass that had to be closed for repairs last year, a road so dangerous that school buses couldn't even pass through safely. The project is only three blocks away from property owned by Hastings. Hastings is defending the project after the Washington Post reported Tuesday that he and 32 other members of Congress directed more than $300 million in earmarks and other spending provisions to dozens of public projects that ...

Honoring Our Veterans
Honoring Our Veterans Weekly Column by Congressman Doc Hastings November 7, 2014   On the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, World War I drew to a close when the armistice agreement was signed.  First observed as Armistice Day, more than 95 years later, November 11th, or Veterans Day, is a day for Americans to honor and thank those whose selfless service has protected the freedoms we all too often take for granted.   The work of those in uniform is dangerous and difficult – requiring personal commitment and sacrifice, as well as the patience and support of their families.  Veterans have given us the comforts of peace and freedom that we enjoy every day.   How best can we honor these American heroes?  We must work hard to uphold the freedoms our men and women in uniform have fought to protect.  On an individual basis, we must carry out the civic responsibilities of free citizens living in a free country.  A
Hanford Cleanup Success Critical to Northwest
  Hanford Cleanup Success Critical to the Northwest Weekly Column by Congressman Doc Hastings October 31, 2014 Dams, agriculture products, the Pacific Northwest National Lab and abundant natural resources are just a few things that make Central Washington unique. Hanford is another. Hanford began in the 1940’s with nuclear production that played a pivotal role in our defense for decades. An integral part of the Manhattan Project, the work done at Hanford helped end World War II and the Cold War. Today, Hanford is the world’s largest environmental cleanup project. Since I was first elected to Congress in 1994, a lot has changed at Hanford for the betterment of our region and our environment. In 1994, there was no overriding plan for the cleanup of our defense nuclear waste sites like Hanford
Farewell Weekly Column by Congressman Doc Hastings November 21, 2014 As I complete my final weeks in Congress, it is only natural to reflect on the past 20 years.  It has truly been my honor and privilege to serve you and represent those who call Central Washington home in Congress.  Whether it’s helping seniors with their Social Security benefits, ensuring that veterans are awarded the medals they earned but never received, or cutting through bureaucratic red tape to support local families and small businesses – the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives is something that I will always be grateful for.  And, it’s one of the things I will miss most about this job.  Throughout the years, I’ve appreciated your support and your input on ways to strengthen Central Washington and our nation.  I have had the opportunity to tour local businesses, family farms and hospitals, talk with students in their classrooms, visit dams, take tours of
Congressional Mailbag
Congressional Mailbag Weekly Column by Congressman Doc Hastings November 14, 2014 As my time representing you in Congress winds down, I wanted to take this opportunity to provide answer to some questions that I have been hearing from my constituents. What issue important to Central Washington has evolved during your years in Congress? When I was first elected in 1994, the listing of the Spotted Owl under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the resulting adoption of the Northwest Forest Plan decimated the timber industry in the Pacific Northwest. This cost thousands of jobs in small communities throughout the region. Environmental activists were also using ESA and the courts to try to force the removal of the four Lower Snake River dams to supposedly save endangered salmon. This would have been devastating to our entire economy. I knew then that the ESA needed to be reformed to base federal action on the be
