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 President Trump’s Nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court: “I believe Neil Gorsuch is a strong choice to serve on our Supreme Court.  Judge Gorsuch’s record indicates he will be a strong defender of the Constitution and American liberties. Judge Gorsuch is well qualified and was approved unanimously via voice vote for his current seat on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. I applaud Senate Republicans for making sure that Justice Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court was not filled during a contentious election by a lame-duck president, and ensuring the new justice was chosen by the president elected by American voters in our recent election. I’m hopeful that the Senate will act quickly to consider and confirm the nomination of Neil Gorsuch.” ###
Rep. Calvert Introduces Bill to Increase Transparency about Federal Animal Testing
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) introduced the Federal Accountability in Chemical Testing (FACT) Act, H.R. 816. The FACT Act would improve reporting by EPA, FDA, NIH, USDA and other government agencies about their efforts to replace inefficient, multi-million-dollar animal tests with faster, less costly and more effective alternative methods for assessing the safety of chemicals, drugs, foods, cosmetics and other substances.    “For two decades, I have played a key role in the efforts to replace wasteful government animal tests with modern alternative tests that save significant time, taxpayers’ money and animals’ lives,” said Rep. Calvert. “The FACT Act will ensure that Congress has the information necessary to determine if federal agencies are meeting their mandates to replace expensive and unnecessary animal testing whenever possible, because evidence suggests they are not.”   The common-sense, bipartisan FACT Act amends the Interagency Coordi
Rep. Calvert's Statement on President Trump’s Executive Actions on National Security
First and foremost, this is not a Muslim ban.  There is no prohibition on the immigration of individuals based on religion. There is no prohibition of individuals who are Muslim from immigrating to the United States.  Individuals from Muslim prominent countries such as Pakistan, Indonesia, Turkey, Egypt, etc are not subject to this Executive Order (EO). The Executive Order places a temporary 90 day halt to the admission of immigrant and non-immigrant visas for nationals from seven countries that are terrorist conflict areas: Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.  The list of seven countries was established between Congress and the Obama Administration through the Visa Waiver Improvement Act.  Within the EO there is a provision that puts a halt on all refugees for 120 days and an indefinite halt on Syrian refugees until the process for vetting refugees is improved. The order is similar to President Obama’s halt to Syrian refugees from 2011
Rep. Calvert Reintroduces Legislation to Ensure Military Reservists Receive Post 9/11 GI Bill Benefits as Intended
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) reintroduced legislation, H.R. 925, that will ensure military reservists will receive Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits as intended by correcting an unintended issue that has negatively affected reservists when reporting for active duty.  “Our veterans and reservists deserve to receive the benefits they have earned without unnecessary complications,” said Rep. Calvert.  “Our reservists make themselves available on short notice to contribute to our national security. Now it’s our turn to come to their aid by making this common sense fix to their Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits.” Under current regulations, an individual who is released from active duty status may begin receiving the Post-9/11 GI Bill Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) on the first day of the month following the date the individual is discharged.  In addition, an individual who is released from active duty status may begin receiving their tuition and fees benefit
