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 to Toughen Immigration Laws
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) voted along with a majority of the House to approve two bills that bolster our immigration laws. The No Sanctuary for Criminals Act (H.R. 3003), which strengthens the law to combat dangerous sanctuary policies, was approved by a vote of 228 to 195. Kate’s Law (H.R. 3004), which enhances penalties for deported felons who return to the United States, was approved by a vote of 257 to 167. Kate’s Law is named for Kate Steinle, a young woman murdered in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant who was a repeat felon. Rep. Calvert is a cosponsor of both bills.   “I strongly believe that we must restore the rule of law and take responsible steps to protect Americans,” said Rep. Calvert. “Fixing our broken immigration system is complicated, but we should all support deporting illegal immigrants who have committed violent crimes. We should continue America’s proud tradition of welcoming legal immigrants who want to work and make the U.S.
Rep. Calvert Votes for California Water Solutions
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) voted along with a majority (230 to 190) of the House of Representatives to approve H.R. 23, the GROW Act. The bill contains a number of provisions aimed at improving California’s water reliability. “The GROW Act builds upon the bipartisan water bill signed into law last year by providing even more long-term water solutions for California,” said Rep. Calvert. “Specifically, it expedites the consideration of feasibility studies for water storage projects that have languished for periods of time that are longer than it took to actually build the Hoover Dam. The GROW Act also includes provisions that are critical to Bay Delta operations and help improve water reliability. California can become drought proof if we build the storage and conveyance infrastructure necessary to collect and move the water we receive in wet years, so that we can utilize it during dry years. I’m a cosponsor of the GROW Act because it moves us closer in that dire

Calvert. “I was pleased to support the $15 million provided by our Committee to construct a new schoolhouse at March Air Reserve Base to support the MQ-9 Reaper aircrew. The demand for of Remote Piloted Aircraft by our military will continue to grow, so this investment is essential to making sure March can meet the future needs of our Air Force.
