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 ...

Moving forward, I will be working with my colleagues to ensure our tax reform bill fulfills our promise to deliver a pro-growth tax plan that helps our economy and eases the tax burden on working families.” Earlier today, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady indicated the committee will introduce its tax reform legislation on November 1st and consider the legislation in a committee markup on November 6th.   &nb
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 Applauds the Passage of the Legal Workforce Act by the Judiciary Committee
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) applauded the passage of the Legal Workforce Act, H.R. 3711, which preserves jobs for citizens and legal workers by requiring U.S. employers to check the work eligibility of all future hires through the E-Verify system.  The Legal Workforce Act was introduced by Congressman Lamar Smith (TX-21), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (VA-6), and Rep. Calvert. “American jobs should only go to citizens and people legally authorized to work in our country,” said Rep. Calvert. “I applaud the Committee passage of the Legal Workforce Act and look forward to the bill coming to the House floor in the future. I want to thank House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Rep. Smith for advancing this bill and their leadership on this issue.” In 1996, Rep. Calvert authored the law that created the E-Verify program, the only tool available for employers to voluntarily check the legal work status of newly hired employees. Sin
