Garamendi urges Senate to pass home lending reform

Few places in the country have been harder hit by the housing crisis than western Contra Costa County. That is where Congressman John Garamendi, D-Walnut Creek, was Tuesday, urging the Senate to pass comprehensive home lending reform. Carmela and Troy Hess worry they will lose their Concord home unless they can reach an agreement with the bank to keep it. Troy is a disabled firefighter and paramedic injured rescuing people from a burning building in Oakland in 2004. "I blew out my right knee, my right hip, and my lower back," said Troy. "And that was pretty much the end of my ...

Congressmen Garamendi and LaMalfa lead letter to the California Water Commission urging Proposition 1 funding for Sites Reservoir
WASHINGTON, DC –Today, Congressmen John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, Davis, Yuba City, CA and Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale, CA) sent a bipartisan joint letter, signed by 42 members of the California Congressional delegation, to the California Water Commission supporting Proposition 1 funding for Sites Reservoir. The Sites Project is a 1.8 million acre-foot, off-stream reservoir that would divert and store excess Sacramento River flows, benefitting California’s economy and the environment. This will help California achieve its co-equal goals of water supply reliability and ecosystem improvement. “Sites Reservoir is one of the most useful, cost-effective water infrastructure projects California could build,” said Garamendi. “It is an ideal project that can provide water for agriculture, urban uses, and the environment. The support for the Sites Project from a majority of the California Congressional delegation speaks to the statewide benefits of the project.” LaMalfa said: “North an
The obvious Obamacare replacement has been here all along
The ongoing uncertainty in Congress surrounding health care legislation, and the intentional sabotage of the Affordable Care Act, is destabilizing the insurance marketplace, driving up costs, discouraging new enrollments, and making Americans worried about the future of their health care. To be clear, any of the existing efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act would be disastrous. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that under the repeal plan passed by the House of Representatives, 14 million people would lose their insurance in the first year of implementation, and 24 million fewer would be insured by 2026. In the short term, Congress should shore up the Affordable Care Act with bipartisan, commonsense improvements, such as a reinsurance program to stabilize the market for high-risk policyholders, legislation to make cost-sharing reductions permanent, and government permission to negotiate for lower prescription drug prices. But in the longer term, the time is right to think a
$1.6 billion for a wall? Let’s spend it on a sure thing instead: the Coast Guard
Picture a scenario: American law enforcement has just chased down a large quantity of cocaine headed for distribution in the United States. They intercept the shipment, seize the drugs, and arrest the smugglers, disrupting yet another attempt to profit off of America’s struggle with addiction. Are you picturing a group of Border Patrol agents pursuing smugglers over land? Likelihood is, you would be mistaken. Drug cartels usually choose the sea, and the only thing standing between the bad guys and the American people is the United States Coast Guard. In fact, last year the Coast Guard and its partner agencies – both foreign and domestic – interdicted more cocaine at sea than was seized at the U.S. land border and across the entire nation by all federal, state and local law enforcement agencies combined. The Coast Guard intercepts hundreds of thousands of pounds of contraband and hundreds of undocumented migrants each year—usually on routes from South and Central America to Mexi
Former Yuba County Supervisors Griego and Nicoletti Join Congressman Garamendi's Team
YUBA CITY, CA – Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-Yuba, Sutter, Glenn, Colusa, Yolo, Sacramento, Lake, and Solano Counties) announced that two former Yuba County Supervisors, Mary Jane Griego and John Nicoletti, are joining his team effective August 1, 2017. Their primary portfolio will be to represent the Congressman’s office in Yuba, Sutter, Colusa, and Glenn counties, with a special focus on regional agriculture, water, veterans, Beale Air Force Base, transportation, public health, and workforce development issues. Federal legislation related to these subject areas will remain the responsibility of his Washington, DC staff. “Mary Jane Griego and John Nicoletti served the people of Yuba County with distinction as Supervisors. They served on numerous regional and state boards and understand the opportunities and challenges of the northern tier of the 3rd Congressional District intimately,” Congressman Garamendi said.  “Like Jack Batchelor, who transitioned from Dixon May
