Costa Announces $1 Million for Valley Veteran Families


Congressman Jim Costa (D-Calif.) announced that $1 million has been released to WestCare California to assist homeless and at-risk Veteran families in Fresno, Tulare, Kings, Madera and Merced Counties. The homelessness prevention grant was awarded through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program. Congressman Costa toured the WestCare facility last year and sent a letter to the VA in support of the grant. “Just one veteran falling asleep at night without a permanent roof over his or her head is one veteran too many,” Costa ...


A common-sense plan to get our economy going and reduce debt


Republicans and Democrats in Congress recently reached an agreement to reduce our nation's budget deficit while allowing our country to pay its bills. The agreement reduces spending by more than it increases the debt limit, protects Social Security and Medicare benefits, and does not raise taxes. While I was pleased that cooler heads prevailed, the agreement that was reached was not the long-term plan to balance our budget and restore our economy that I wanted. It is also not what most Americans expected and deserve. The folks I talk to every day aren't looking for a short-term solution or a ...


Let's regain the 'can do' spirit displayed after 9/11


Like most Americans, I watched in horror 10 years ago as the second plane slammed into the World Trade Center towers in New York City. After calling family members on the East Coast and as smoke rose from the wreckage in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, it became clear to me that America and the world in which we live was forever changed. We can draw many lessons from the tragedy of Sept. 11 and the decade that followed -- some positive, some negative. Most evident to me is that the resiliency and courage of the American people that has exemplified our nation for well more than two ...

What Does the 2014 Election Mean for HSR?
Another year, another Democratic bloodbath outside of California. Democrats have lost control of the US Senate, meaning we’re right back to the late 1990s again in terms of DC politics. As with 2010, California largely resisted the red tide. Jerry Brown was re-elected governor by at least a 19 point margin. Californians resoundingly rejected Neel […]
Jim Costa Likely Wins Re-election

Costa, Hahn, Lofgren, Slam Republican Op-Eds
Jim Costa, Janice Hahn, and Zoe Lofgren are co-chairs of the Congressional Caucus on California High-Speed Rail – and they’re not happy about recent Republican attacks on high speed rail in the pages of the Sacramento Bee. They responded to op-eds by Jeff Denham and Kevin McCarthy with their own op-ed in the Bee over […]
Congress Fails Again on High Speed Rail
The US House of Representatives held a hearing today, at Jeff Denham’s request, into the California High Speed Rail project. I caught some of the testimony and read some transcripts of the remarks from both witnesses and members of Congress, and I have to agree with the Fresno Bee’s Michael Doyle in his conclusion that […]
