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 ...

FAA Reauthorization Act Including Rep. Calvert’s Ontario Airport Bill Signed into Law
Today, President Obama signed into law the FAA Reauthorization Act, which included legislation (H.R. 4369) introduced by Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) that will facilitate the transfer of Ontario International Airport from the city of Los Angeles to the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA). “I am absolutely thrilled that we have been able to move the Ontario Airport legislation across the finish line,” said Rep. Calvert. “It is especially meaningful to have this bill signed into law because I know how important it is to Inland Empire residents to restore local control of Ontario Airport. Putting the aviation future of our region into our own hands has been a long road, but I have been proud to play a role in this critically important effort.” The agreement to transfer Ontario Airport is structured in such a way that $120 million in Passenger Facilities Charges (PFC) is required to be transferred from ONT to Los Angeles Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA)

Today, the House of Representatives passed (231 to 196) the Fiscal Year 2017 Interior and Environment Appropriations Bill introduced by Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42). Rep. Calvert is the Chairman of the House Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee. “The Interior bill approved by the House today protects taxpayers, job creators and makes important investments in critical programs for our country,” said Rep. Calvert. “The bill contains a number of provisions and significant resources for California, including language addressing the ongoing drought, funding for an earthquake early warning system and the highly successful Diesel Emissions Reduction Program (DERA). The bill also protects our economy and American jobs by stopping a host of job-killing regulations that have become the hallmark of the Obama administration’s executive overreach. I’m proud to be at the forefront of the House’s efforts to stop President Obama’s harmful regulatory overreach that
Rep. Calvert Applauds U.S. Attorney and USPIS for Mail Theft Arrests
Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) applauded the U.S. Attorney’s office and the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) for arresting eleven Inland Empire residents who are charged in indictments that allege federal crimes related to mail theft.   “Mail theft is a growing problem in Riverside County and I’m relieved that these criminals are being taken off the street,” said Rep. Calvert. “These crimes often cost victims significant money and cause a major inconvenience.  We must continue to aggressively pursue mail theft criminals and increase the penalties for these crimes. I want to thank everyone involved in these arrests, including Assistant United States Attorney Bilal A. Essayli, the United States Postal Inspection Service, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department and the Hemet Police Department.”   Earlier this year, Rep. Calvert introduced the Ensuring the Safety Our Mail Act, H.R.4515, which will double the maximum jail sentence fo
Congressional Task Force on CENTCOM Releases Initial Report
A Congressional joint task force (JTF) investigating allegations of intelligence manipulation at U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) released an initial report today detailing persistent problems in 2014 and 2015 with CENTCOM analysis of U.S. efforts to train the Iraqi Security Forces and combat the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.   The JTF found that intelligence products approved by senior CENTCOM leaders typically provided a more positive depiction of U.S. anti-terrorism efforts than was warranted by facts on the ground and were consistently more positive than analysis produced by other elements of the Intelligence Community. It further determined that numerous process changes implemented at CENCTOM as well as leadership deficiencies resulted in widespread dissatisfaction among CENTCOM analysts who felt their superiors were distorting their products.   Created in response to a whistleblower allegation, the JTF was established by the Chairmen of the House Armed S
