Larsen sacks aides after Tweets reveal boozy office antics


Congressman Rick Larsen has fired three aides after learning of their indiscreet tweets bragging about on-the-job drinking and insulting their boss. The Democratic Representative in Washington sacked the trio - Seth Burroughs, Elizabeth Robblee and Ben Byers - shortly after a report by the online NW Daily Marker outlined their Twitter feeds from August to early December. The tweets made repeated references to 'December to Remember' (D2R)- a phrase coined by the trio of staffers to define their attempt to spend the final month of the year in a state drunkenness. ...

Washington Cities Could Benefit from More Federal Transportation Funding Under Larsen Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Many cities in the Pacific Northwest including Anacortes, Arlington, Bothell, Edmonds, Ferndale, Lake Stevens, Lynnwood, Lynden, Mill Creek, Monroe, Mountlake Terrace, Mount Vernon, Mukilteo, and Sedro-Woolley could benefit from more federal transportation funding under legislation introduced by Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02), and co-sponsored by Reps. DelBene (WA-01), Kilmer (WA-06), Ryan (OH-13) and Brownley (CA-26). Larsen’s Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery for Cities Underfunded Because of Size (TIGER CUBS) Act of 2017 would set-aside 20 percent of the funds for smaller and medium-sized cities made available through the popular Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant program. “Small and mid-size cities play a critical role in powering Washington’s economy, but you would not know it based on how federal transportation funding is allocated,” said Larsen, a senior member of the House Transportation and Infrastruct
One Week Ago
Friends – I know many of you are feeling disappointed and dispirited from the election. It still hurts that a week ago, Donald Trump became our President-elect. Trump’s rhetoric has left some of our friends and neighbors scared. Scared that their families may be separated. Scared that our progress as a nation may be impeded. Scared that they may no longer have a place in this great country. I hear that anxiety and fear. I will stand up and fight hateful rhetoric, decisions and actions from President-elect Trump. That starts today. I have strong differences with the incoming administration. But I am committed to working together where I can, and resisting where I must. The state of our country calls me to action. We must start today. We must start the work of building coalitions to be prepared for the next fight. Please stand with me today as our work is clearly not done. Rick
Larsen on Trump Executive Order: Scapegoating Refugees Fleeing War, Terrorism and Persecution is ‘as low as it gets’
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) today released the following statement after President Donald Trump’s executive order which bars citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States for 90 days, indefinitely bans refugees from Syria and suspends admission of all other refugees for 120 days. “This executive order scapegoats refugees fleeing war, terrorism and persecution – that is as low as it gets,” said Larsen, a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee. “‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free’ – those are more than just words inscribed on the Statue of Liberty. The United States of America has always been a haven for everyone – regardless of religion or nationality – who seeks a better life. President Trump’s poorly thought out actions fly in the face of those foundational American values, and leave countless green card holders, international students and others with questions
Larsen Calls on Congress To End Orca Captivity Once and For All
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) is once again cosponsoring the Orca Responsibility and Care Advancement (ORCA) Act, a bill that aims to end the captivity of orca whales once and for all. The ORCA Act would permanently end orca captivity across the United States and prohibit orca breeding, the wild capture of orcas, and the import or export of orcas for purposes of public display.  “Orcas are an iconic and beloved part of Pacific Northwest culture,” Larsen said. “Passing the ORCA Act will ensure future generations of orcas stay where they belong: in the wild, not in captivity.” Larsen has a long record of fighting to protect the environment. In 2016, President Obama signed the bipartisan Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act, authorizing an effort Larsen spearheaded to make the largest-ever investment in Puget Sound restoration as part of the Puget Sound Nearshore Ecosystem Restoration Project. In May of last year, Larsen’s bipartisan bill
