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 Urges FERC to Deny Waiver for LEAPS Project
In a letter sent earlier this month, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) has urged the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to deny Nevada Hydro’s request to waive pre-filing licensing requirements for its proposed Lake Elsinore Advanced Pumped Storage (LEAPS) Project due to significant local concerns with the project.   “I have heard from many of my constituents and the city of Lake Elsinore regarding their concerns with the LEAPS Project,” said Rep. Calvert. “FERC should deny any attempt to fast-track the project and take into account the many questions and complicated issues surrounding the LEAPS Project. The region around Lake Elsinore has changed dramatically since Nevada Hydro first submitted its environmental documents and original application in 2007. The outdated documents and significant community concerns make it vital that FERC deny the waiver request and follow a deliberative process that fully scrutinizes the project.”        
Rep. Calvert Votes for Government-Wide Funding Bill

The legislation contains a package of funding bills that provide all discretionary funding for the federal government for the 2018 fiscal year. “Today, the House took care of its job by passing all 12 of the appropriations bills for the first time since 2009,” said Rep. Calvert. “The funding bill approved today reflects the priorities of most American families, including funding increases for our national security. The bill also contains funding for a number of southern California priorities, like continued investments in the earthquake early warning system and the Santa Ana River Mainstem flood control project. It’s now time for the Senate to do its job and pass these bills.” Highlights: The Defense portion of the bill contained $15 million requested by Rep. Calvert to construct
Rep. Calvert Holds Job Creator Listening Session on Tax Reform
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) held a Job Creator Listening Session on Tax Reform. Small business representatives and local leaders from throughout the 42nd District shared ideas and discussed tax reform with Rep. Calvert. “We need a tax code that allows our small businesses to succeed, grow and fuel economic growth,” said Rep. Calvert. “Today, our job creators made it clear that they share our goal of reforming our tax code to make American companies more competitive globally.  Any changes to our tax code must also take into account the important role non-profit organizations play in our communities. I plan on taking that message back to Washington and advocating for pro-growth tax policies that will truly help our economy.” ###
Calvert, Smith, and Goodlatte Introduce Bill to Protect Jobs for Americans and Legal Workers
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42), Congressman Lamar Smith (TX-21), and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (VA-6) introduced the Legal Workforce Act (H.R. 3711) to preserve 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.    “Mandatory E-Verify is long overdue,” said Rep. Calvert. “The program is ready to go mandatory and the Legal Workforce Act will deliver on the promise to ensure that American jobs go to American workers and those authorized to work in the U.S. Chairman Smith and Chairman Goodlatte continue to demonstrate tremendous leadership in advancing the use of E-Verify and protecting American workers.”   In 1996, Rep. Calvert authored the legislative language that created the E-Verify program, the only tool available for employers to voluntarily check the legal work status of newly hired employees. Since then, Rep. Calvert has worked ste
