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 Votes for Major Step Towards Implementing Tax Reform for America
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) voted along with a majority of the House of Representatives (219 to 206) to approve the Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Resolution (H. Con. Res. 71). The resolution paves the way towards consideration of comprehensive tax reform via the budget reconciliation process, making it immune from a Senate filibuster. “The best thing Congress can do for American families and our economy is to pass tax reform that simplifies our code and lets taxpayers keep more of their hard-earned money,” said Rep. Calvert. “With the passage of the budget resolution, the House has taken a major step on the path towards tax relief. I’m hopeful the Senate will follow our example so we can move on to passing a tax reform bill.”    Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Resolution Highlights (Provided by the House Budget Committee)   Balancing the Budget The resolution draws a path toward a balanced budget within 10 years, without raising taxes, and places
Rep. Calvert Statement on Gun Policy in the United States
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement on gun policy in the United States:   “I have long been a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights and I will never waiver from that commitment.  However, it is incumbent on all of us to reflect on our current gun laws and seek to better protect ourselves and each other.     “There are steps that both the Executive and the Congress can take to protect innocent Americans from an attack such as Las Vegas.  There is simply no reason for someone to be able to modify a legal weapon to shoot like a machine gun.  Bump stocks should never have been made legal and we must act quickly to ban them.  I have agreed to sign a letter urging the ATF to reverse their 2010 ruling that allowed the sale of bump stocks and I am working with a number of Republicans and Democrats on a potential legislative solution as well.     “Protecting the rights of law-abiding Ameri
Reps. Calvert and LaMalfa Introduce the Federally Integrated Species Health Act
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) and Congressman Doug LaMalfa (CA-1), and others, introduced the Federally Integrated Species Health (FISH) Act, H.R. 3916. The legislation would consolidate the management and regulation of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) within the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS).   “It makes no sense to have multiple federal agencies responsible for enforcing the ESA,” said Rep. Calvert. “The FISH Act is a good government bill that will benefit species and all stakeholders affected by the ESA through a unified approach to managing threatened and endangered species. As we have seen in the California Bay Delta and other complex habitats, there are often conflicting and incompatible measures taken by different resource agencies.”   Rep. LaMalfa said: “Last year, the conflicting ESA responsibilities of the FWS and NMFS resulted in one agency demanding that water be released from Shasta Dam for Delta smelt, while simultaneously the other agen
Rep. Calvert Statement on Las Vegas Shooting
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement on the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada: “My deepest condolences go out to the victims’ families and friends and to those injured. I commend the rapid reaction from first responders and the medical staff who are currently treating those who were hurt.  There are no words to express the sorrow at such a large number of lives lost. It defies comprehension. My prayers are with all those impacted.”     ###
