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 Joint Address to Congress by President Trump
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement ahead of the Joint Address to Congress by President Trump: “As we’ve already seen by his actions, President Trump intends to fulfill the promises made last year on the campaign trail.  Some people may still be in shock that he won the election, but no one should be surprised by the actions President Trump is taking. Tonight, I expect President Trump to lay out a bold agenda to get America back on the right track.  I look forward to working with him and my colleagues in Congress to enact that agenda in the days, weeks and months ahead.  I am eager to fulfill the promise of repealing and replacing Obamacare with health care solutions that truly reduce health care costs, give families more choices, and accomplish these goals in a fiscally sustainable manner. President Trump and Republicans in Congress have already started and will continue to fulfill our promise to cut through the regulatory red-ta
Rep. Calvert Votes to Raise Pay for American Troops and Resources to Restore Our Military Strength
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) voted along with a bipartisan majority (371-48) of his House colleagues to pass the Fiscal Year 2017 Defense Appropriations bill.  Rep. Calvert serves as the Vice Chairman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee.   “The Defense Appropriations bill passed by the House today is an important first step to rebuild and restore our military strength,” said Rep. Calvert. “The bill provides vital funding for our Armed Services, including a 2.1% pay raise and additional funding for increased end strength. I look forward to working with the new Administration and providing the resources our military needs to maintain our position in the world as well as continue to invest in our most important asset – the men and women our United States Armed Forces.”   Bill Highlights (Provided by the House Appropriations Committee):   Military Personnel and Pay – The agreement includes $132.1 billion – $128.7 billion
Rep. Calvert Statement on Introduction of the American Health Care Act
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement on the introduction of the American Health Care Act: “With premiums rising, deductibles increasing, and health care choices decreasing, American families know all too well that Obamacare is collapsing. That’s exactly why I promised the voters in my district that I would take action and work to repeal and replace Obamacare with patient-centered health care solutions that actually reduce costs and expand choices. The simple fact is our health care system is on life support and whoever won last year’s election was going to need to resuscitate it. The introduction of the American Health Care Act is an important step towards the fulfillment of that promise. The bill empowers families and doctors with health care decisions, rather than giving Washington bureaucrats the power to impose one-size-fits-all regulations. Not everyone requires the same type of health plan, so the bill gives Americans more afforda

Kay Granger (TX-12) serves as the Chairwoman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee.   “I am honored to serve as the Vice Chairman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee and I want to thank Chairman Frelinghuysen and Chairwoman Granger,” said Rep. Calvert. “I look forward to working with the Chairwoman and supporting her as she takes the helm of the Subcommittee.  Conducting hearings, reviewing the President’s budget request and crafting the bill that funds our men and women in uniform is of the highest importance.  As we face numerous threats around the world it is vital that we provide our Armed Forces with the resources they need to accomplish their missions and minimize risk as well as plan for future threats.”   Rep. Calvert is also the Chairman
