Congressman Garamendi Responds to Governor Brown’s Revised BDCP Water Policy
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, CA), one of California’s strongest voices against the proposed twin tunnel project, today responded to Governor Jerry Brown’s reimagining of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP), now separated into two projects: the so-called “California Water Fix” and “California Eco Restore”. “The changes to the BDCP – now known as the California Water Fix and California Eco Restore – just confirm our fear that this project is not about restoring the environment,” Congressman Garamendi said. “It is merely about stealing water by building a facility that will lead to the destruction of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The governor has jettisoned all pretense of enhancing the ecology of the Delta. The new plan released today represents a financial savings at the expense of fish, wildlife, the San Francisco Bay, and the Delta.” Garamendi has consistently called for the twin tunnels to be scrapped in favor of water pro

Garamendi Votes Against Bill that would Escalate Modern Nuclear Arms Race and Make Shortsighted Cuts to Alternative Energy
Despite Serious Flaws, Bill Includes Local Water Projects that Garamendi Fought For WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, CA) voted against H.R. 2028, the $35.4 billion Fiscal Year 2016 Energy and Water Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill. The bill passed by a 240-177 vote. The bill includes $8.7 billion to maintain America’s nuclear weapons stockpile, $526 million more than FY 2015. Garamendi fears this increase in spending to support our already bloated nuclear weapons program, particularly in the context of delicate diplomacy with Iran and Russia, could trigger a chain reaction that would accelerate a modern nuclear arms race. “While I fully support the water and flood protection projects in the bill, I strongly oppose the nuclear weapons appropriations, totaling $8.7 billion – $526 million more than Fiscal Year 2015,” said Congressman Garamendi. “I am extremely concerned that we are well into the first quarter of a nucle

Garamendi Urges Immediate Action to Keep Communities Safe at Oil-By-Rail Press Conference with Federal Railroad Acting Administrator Feinberg, Local and State Leaders

Local Water Projects Clear House Following Garamendi’s Extensive Work
WASHINGTON, DC – The Fiscal Year 2016 Energy and Water Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill that cleared Congress late Thursday night includes a number of local water projects that Garamendi has spent months and years fighting for. The bill makes substantial investments in local water projects that Congressman Garamendi has been closely working on. These projects include desperately needed levee improvements. “The Energy and Water Appropriations Bill makes significant investments in a number of local water projects, including the Sacramento River Bank Protection, American River, Yuba River Basin, Hamilton City J-Levee, Suisun Bay Shipping Channel, Lower Cache Creek, and the Port of Stockton. Sites Reservoir’s feasibility study also moves forward in this bill,” Congressman Garamendi said. “Clearly, when it comes to water appropriations, bipartisanship is still possible.

Garamendi Warns of New Nuclear Arms Race during Defense Authorization Amendments Hearing
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday evening, during the House Armed Services Committee’s consideration of the FY2016 National Defense Authorization Act, H.R. 1735, Committee Member Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, CA) introduced and spoke in favor of a series of amendments that seek to better inform Congress about the costs and risks of America’s participation in a new nuclear arms race. The Republican majority on the Committee rejected every amendment introduced, even amendments that simply asked for reports from the Department of Defense (DOD) and National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to better understand the total lifecycle costs of nuclear weapons programs. It is estimated that America’s nuclear weapons posture, as currently envisioned, will cost the nation more than a trillion dollars over 30 years, but the federal government does not currently consider the costs of these programs beyond ten years. “I think it's about time to pause for a moment and consider what
