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 Statement on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement on the introduction of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: “I am very encouraged that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will help us deliver the tax reform and relief that middle-income taxpayers and our job creators so desperately need. Lowering rates, doubling the standard deduction, and increasing the child tax credit are great steps that will allow working families to keep more of the money they earn. In its current form the bill maintains a deduction for state and local property taxes, as well as the mortgage interest deduction. I will be working with my California colleagues as this bill moves through Congress to ensure the final bill adequately provides relief to middle class taxpayers in my congressional district. At the end of the day, I am confident that we will enact tax reform that grows our economy, wages, jobs and is a big boost for American families.” Summary of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: HERE &
Rep. Calvert Votes to Provide Troops with a Pay Raise and Necessary Resources to Fulfill their Mission
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) voted along with a bipartisan majority (356-70) of the House of Representatives to approve the Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report.    “Keeping America safe is my top priority in Congress and providing the tools and training for our extraordinary men and women in uniform is critical to achieving that goal,” said Rep. Calvert. “The NDAA approved today gives our troops the highest pay raise they’ve seen in the past eight years. The bill also takes significant steps to address the long-running training and readiness challenges our military has faced over the past number of years.”   NDAA Highlights: (Provided by the House Armed Services Committee)  The NDAA equips, supplies, and trains our troops; cares for them and their families; and sets national security policy in a dangerous world.    Provides the Necessary Topline of Nearly $700 Billion—a
Rep. Calvert Votes for Tax Reform that Allows Taxpayers to Keep More of their Money and Grows America’s Economy
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) voted along with a majority (227 to 205) of the House of Representatives to approve the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, H.R. 1. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is the most significant overhaul of the U.S. tax code since the 1986 Tax Reform Act was signed into law by President Reagan. “I voted for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act because it allows my constituents in the 42nd District to keep more of the money they earn and will produce tremendous economic benefits that help working families,” said Rep. Calvert. “Despite the misinformed and misleading claims from tax-loving liberals, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act produces real tax relief – especially for low-income and middle-income households with children. That’s not my opinion, that’s math. This tax bill will allow a majority of my constituents to opt for the standard deduction and, on average, boost after-tax income for middle-class families in California by $2,932.” The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act c
Rep. Calvert Statement on Kate Steinle Trial Verdict
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement in response to the verdict in the Kate Steinle murder trial:   “Kate Steinle’s family has suffered an agonizing loss and now have been denied justice for the man who shot and killed her. If our immigration laws were enforced, Kate would be alive today. I defy anyone to defend that murderer’s right to be on the San Francisco pier the night he took her life.”     ###
