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 Slams Defense Dept. for Burying Report on the Cost of the Pentagon Bureaucracy
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42), a member of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, criticized the Defense Department for willfully ignoring the findings of a report issued by the Defense Business Board on the unsustainable growth in the civilian bureaucracy at the Pentagon. An investigation by The Washington Post found that Defense Department officials took a series of actions to keep the report and its findings out of public view.   “I introduced the REDUCE Act because there’s an undeniable reality that the civilian workforce at the Pentagon has become too large and too costly,” said Rep. Calvert. “The dollars being wasted on the Defense Department’s oversized bureaucracy hurts taxpayers and it hurts our troops because those funds would be better spent on new equipment, training and readiness. The status quo at the Pentagon must stop.  As The Post’s investigation found, Pentagon officials prefer to bury their heads in the sand on this critical

Calvert has nominated. “These young men and women who I have nominated to the service academies have character, integrity, motivation and pride, and I am proud to nominate them,” stated Rep.

Rep. Calvert’s Veterans Education Bill Signed into Law
On Friday, December 16th, the President signed H.R. 6416 into law, which contained legislation introduced by Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) to streamline veteran education benefits at community colleges.   “Our veterans should be able to receive their education benefits without any unnecessary delays,” said Rep. Calvert. “Community colleges provide incredible educational opportunities for our veterans, so I am pleased the President signed this bill into law to make it easier for veterans to use their education benefits at these institutions.”   “We are pleased that the members of Congress made access to education for student veterans a priority,” said Virginia Blumenthal, Riverside Community College District (RCCD) Board President. “Current and former members of the RCCD board have supported this bill and we are pleased that Congressman Calvert and members of congress passed it. Our colleges served more than 1,740 student veterans in 2015-16, all of whom wi
Rep. Calvert Votes for Water Bill Providing Relief for California Communities
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) voted along with a bipartisan majority (360 to 61) of the House in support of the Water Infrastructure Improvements Act for the Nation (WIIN) Act, a comprehensive water resources bill. “Even before California began to suffer from drought conditions, I have worked with my colleagues to enact solutions that improve our state’s aging water infrastructure and update the policies that have led to its inefficient operation,” said Rep. Calvert. “Today, we have passed a bipartisan bill that is an important first step towards capturing, storing and using more water when it rains, rather than allowing that water to flow out to the ocean.  The future of our state depends on a reliable water supply and I will continue to advocate for policies that ensure California has the water it needs.” The California drought provisions in the bill allow more water to be put to beneficial use. Specifically, the bill allows for Delta pumps to operate at hig
