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. 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 Health Care
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement after last night’s health care vote in the Senate:   “Despite the political drama in the Senate, we must not lose sight of the fact that Obamacare premiums continue to rise and health insurance providers are dropping out of exchanges across the country, leaving many Americans with just one option. The House acted to replace Obamacare with a system that would lower premiums and give Americans access to a broad array of quality plans.     This problem is far too big to ignore. I urge Congress to continue working and find a path forward in order to provide Americans the relief they need and deserve.”     ###
