Calvert Disappointed that DOT Denied 91 Fr. Corridor Project

Congressman Ken Calvert (R-CA) expressed his disappointment that the 91 Freeway Corridor Project was denied a loan through the Transportation Infrastructure Financing Innovation Act (TIFIA), administered by the Department of Transportation (DOT). Rep. Calvert strongly advocated for the 91 Freeway Corridor Project (via meetings, phone calls, a bipartisan letter in support of a TIFIA loan for the project, an op-ed, etc). Rep. Calvert worked with state and local officials, the Inland Empire and Orange County delegations, and with U.S. Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein. The 91 Freeway ...

Ken Calvert Introduces Mandatory Employment Verification

Congressman Ken Calvert (R-CA) Introduced a bill (H.R.19) to require employers to conduct employment eligibility verification through the Basic Pilot Program. In addition the bill would rename the Basic Pilot Program to the "Employment Eligibility Verification System". The mandatory requirement would phase in over 7 years, starting 1 year after enactment, depending on the size of the company. It would start with employers who have more than 10,000 employees and then progress down from there. This is logical because companies that large can afford to do the training and hiring of individuals, ...

Rep. Calvert Votes for Debt Deal to Avoid Default

Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA) voted in favor of the Budget Control Act of 2011 to avoid default and put America on a path of fiscal discipline. “The debate on the debt limit increase should not have come to this, an 11th hour solution that requires a quick vote on complex legislation,” said Rep. Calvert. “The House passed two bills in plenty of time but unfortunately the Senate could not even bring up their own bill, let alone the House bill and President Obama failed to ever produce a plan on paper. “Having said that, I commend Speaker Boehner and all our leaders in the ...

Rep. Calvert Votes to Stop Gitmo Detainee Transfers
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) voted along with a majority (244 to 174) of the House in support of legislation, H.R. 5351, that would block the transfer of detainees from Guantanamo Bay. Rep. Calvert is a cosponsor of H.R. 5351.   “There is no reason to compromise the safety of American families, our troops, and our allies by unnecessarily transferring Gitmo detainees,” said Rep. Calvert. “President Obama has created a false narrative that Gitmo somehow motivates the Islamic jihadists who have attacked Americans. The fact remains that Islamic jihadists were motivated to kill Americans long before a single detainee was held in Gitmo. I’ve witnessed first-hand how detainees are treated at Gitmo and there is simply no comparison with the treatment Americans and other captives receive from Islamic jihadists. The individuals being held at Gitmo are enemy combatants and their release would absolutely be a risk to our troops around the world and Americans here at ho
Rep. Calvert Supports Passage of the Water Resources Development Act
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) voted along with a bipartisan majority of the House to pass H.R. 5303, the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA).  The bill authorizes funding to address the needs of America’s harbors, locks, dams, flood protection, and other water resources infrastructure.     “Our country’s water infrastructure needs significant investment and the passage of WRDA is an important step towards meeting those needs,” said Rep. Calvert.  “I’m particularly pleased that WRDA included language clarifying the eligibility of water supply projects under the Corps of Engineers’ Environmental Infrastructure program.  I will continue to advocate for federal funding for Riverside County’s flood control and other water resources infrastructure projects.”     H.R. 5303 contained language clarifying that Environmental Infrastructure projects, including water supply projects, are deemed eligible for consideration under S
Rep. Calvert’s Pechanga Water Rights Settlement Act Passed by Natural Resources Committee
Today, the House Natural Resources Committee approved the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians Water Rights Settlement Act, H.R. 5984, which was introduced by Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42).   “I’m grateful that the Natural Resources Committee has taken action and advanced the Pechanga Water Rights Settlement Act,” said Rep. Calvert. “Support continues to build for enacting a fair, equitable, and final settlement of water rights claims between Pechanga, Rancho California Water District, Eastern Municipal Water District and the United States.  I look forward to passing the bill on the House floor.”   The Pechanga Band of Luiseño Mission Indians Water Rights Settlement Act quantifies the Band’s reserved water rights in the Santa Margarita River Watershed.  The legislation also authorizes necessary infrastructure to guarantee a permanent supply of water to the Band through cooperative agreements with the local water purveyors, including Rancho Californi
Rep. Calvert Praises Funding for San Bernardino Terror Attack Response
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) praised the Department of Justice’s announcement that an additional $500,000 will be awarded to the law enforcement agencies that responded to the December 2, 2015 terrorist attack in San Bernardino. Since the attack, Rep. Calvert, Congressman Pete Aguilar (CA-31), and the rest of the Inland Empire delegation have worked closely with the law enforcement agencies to obtain federal assistance to cover the significant costs associated with their response.   “The San Bernardino terror attack is a grave reminder that terrorists ultimate goal is to kill Americans at home,” said Rep. Calvert. “I’m grateful that the DOJ has recognized the importance of supporting our local law enforcement agencies by awarding this deserved funding to offset the enormous costs incurred by local law enforcement as they bravely responded to the devastating attack in our region last December. This grant recognizes the federal obligation to help make local co
