Honoring the Fallen

2016/05/27

Dear Friend,

This holiday weekend marks a special time to pause and remember the fallen. We reflect on the bravery, honor and sacrifice of those who have fought to defend our country and the freedoms we hold so dear. In the spirit of Memorial Day this Monday, I was proud to work with my colleagues this week to pass legislation and discuss issues that are critical to our veterans.

Back in March, I spoke on the House floor and voted in favor of my friend Rep. Martha McSally’s bill to reinstate inurnment rights at Arlington Cemetery to WWII Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs). These brave women represent an elite group of pilots that made invaluable contributions to our nation’s efforts to battle on the world stage. They deserve the honor bestowed to thousands of their fellow comrades and it is unacceptable that the VA couldn’t find the space for their final resting place. I’m happy to report that the Senate passed the bill unanimously in early May and the President signed it into law last Friday. I’m proud to be a co-sponsor of this legislation and look forward to continuing to honor the commitment and service of our WASPs.

On Thursday, I held an event in conjunction with the Congressional Veterans Jobs Caucus, a caucus that I founded as a bicameral and bipartisan organization to seek solutions for helping to transition our veterans to civilian life and seek job opportunities. Last November, we hosted a discussion about the transition from service to the civilian workforce and how we can better address the challenges that servicemembers face. Our panel this week focused on the opportunities and issues surrounding military and veteran spouse employment as well as potential policy solutions to help relieve these burdens. Spouses are sometimes forgotten, but critically important components of military families and the success of our armed forces. It takes much more than legislation to integrate military families into how we address care for our veterans and I’m glad we are able to host productive discussions focused on solutions to this problem. I will continue to push initiatives that help vets and provide opportunities for military families.

I was joined by my friend and co-chair, Rep. Tim Walz from Minnesota, at our discussion about military and veteran spouses. 

Recently, the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs made comments comparing veterans waiting for care at VA facilities to the wait times of families in line for an attraction at Disneyland. These remarks are not only insensitive, but they demonstrate a disgusting failure of leadership. The Secretary’s words go much deeper than providing excuses for long wait times. He lacks the fundamental understanding of the mistreatment that our vets are receiving as a result of his poor management and failure to reform this corrupt agency. Secretary McDonald’s claim that wait times are no way to measure an experience with the VA is deplorable. At least 40 veterans died waiting for care at the VA Hospital in Phoenix. Wait times DO matter. That’s why I’ve been working hard to ensure that the VA Hospital at French Camp has funding and protections so that the Valley’s veterans have access to timely and quality care. There are more than 60,000 men and women in Stanislaus and San Joaquin Counties who have fought in every  conflict since WWII that deserve the best care that we can give them.

The French Camp facility is located in Reclamation District 17 (RD17), which the Army Corps of Engineers intends to exclude from its flood risk management plans. The Lower San Joaquin River Feasibility Study is expected to be released later this year and outlines geographic regions that will receive infrastructure improvements to prevent potential damage from flooding. The exclusion of RD17 from this plan would leave 47,000 residents and the site of the VA hospital vulnerable to potentially catastrophic damage in the event of a flood. The Army Corps of Engineers claims that RD17 is left out of their flood protection plans because they want to discourage the growth and development of this area. I have been pressing them to reconsider their current plans and General Jackson, who oversees civil and emergency operations for the Army Corps, recently asserted that there is no intention to discourage any kind of growth. In another encouraging development for French Camp and RD17, I voted with the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to pass the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), which includes my mandate to include RD17 in the Army Corps’ study. WRDA now goes to the floor for a vote. I know that my fellow committee members agree with me that this reclamation district and our new VA facility deserve protection from flooding, and hope that the rest of my colleagues in the House see the common sense in this provision.

My bipartisan bill to reduce government waste unanimously passed the House this week and is now headed to the Senate for consideration.

The Federal Asset Sale and Transfer (FAST) Act seeks to shrink the size of government, eliminate waste and sell off unused and vacant federal properties. This legislation will save taxpayers billions of dollars by establishing a board to identify opportunities to reduce the inventory of federal properties. Especially when we’re strapped with our trillion dollar debt, we need to be working to find ways to cut spending. The FAST Act will do just that – we can save taxpayer dollars and revitalize communities in the process. I hope to send this bill to the President’s desk soon so we can start saving your dollars!

I met with the Western Propane Gas Association, which had representatives from Manteca and Modesto. We discussed energy sources as well as the importance of pipeline safety. 

I’m looking forward to spending some time in the Valley. On Monday, I’ll be attending several Memorial Day services, including the Turlock Veterans of Foreign War and American Legion ceremony as well as the events in Modesto and Lakewood Memorial Park. I ask you to join me in remembering the fallen heroes who put country before self and the veterans who have fought to protect our country and our families.

With admiration and respect for our servicemembers future, past and present,

Denham Mandate to Protect Valley Residents, French Camp VA Facility Sent to Floor

2016/05/26

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) yesterday voted with the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure to unanimously pass the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), which includes Rep. Denham’s language mandating that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) include Reclamation District 17 (RD-17) in the final Lower San Joaquin River Feasibility Study expected later this year.

“The decision by the Army Corps to deny future flood protection to RD-17 is baffling to me,” said Rep. Denham. “In addition to the 47,000 residents, this site will be home to the new VA hospital that is long overdue for the Valley’s veterans.”

Rep. Denham has been a vocal critic of the USACE’s intention to omit RD-17, which is currently home to nearly 47,000 residents, 10,700 dwelling units and 180 non-residential properties, from its flood protection plans. RD-17 also includes the County Hospital, 28 special needs facilities, nine fire stations, eight police stations, eight schools, the County Jail, the Sharpe Army Depot and a VA clinic. The USACE has consistently opposed new levees to protect RD-17 and has denied the district’s inclusion in the final feasibility report, which outlines infrastructure improvements to assist in flood risk management efforts.

Rep. Jerry McNerney (D-Stockton) said, “I am pleased that language to address flood concerns in RD-17 was included in the Water Resources Development Act.  I represent a large portion of the Delta region – home to thousands of miles of levees. Many of the families and businesses in my district are within flood plains, and we must do everything possible to protect them. Including RD-17 within the San Joaquin River Feasibility Study will help guard against flood risk throughout San Joaquin County and ensure that critical projects like the new VA facility move forward. I look forward to continue working with Congressman Denham and my colleagues on this important issue for our region.”

Denham Bill to Reduce Government Waste, Sell Unused Federal Properties Passes House

2016/05/24

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) ushered the unanimous passage of his bipartisan Federal Asset Sale and Transfer (FAST) Act of 2016 yesterday on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislation will shrink the size of government, eliminate waste and sell off unused and vacant federal properties, saving taxpayers billions of dollars.

The FAST Act (H.R. 4465) establishes an independent board to identify federal properties to be sold and consolidated, saving billions of dollars in federal expenses and operating costs.

“Given our trillion dollar deficit and skyrocketing debt we must examine every area of government and look for ways to cut spending,” said Rep. Denham. “This bill is a bipartisan solution to a three billion dollar problem. By selling and consolidating unneeded and underutilized federal property we can save taxpayer dollars and revitalize communities in the process.”

According to the most recent Federal Real Property Summary, the government owns more than 254,000 buildings, comprising 2.5 billion square feet of space, costing the taxpayer $14.4 billion annually. Recent estimates show 77,000 buildings are underutilized, costing $1.7 billion annually. Though federal agencies have been previously directed to identify and eliminate these properties and freeze their federal property footprint, these efforts have been poorly managed and mired in bureaucracy.

This legislation implements reforms to shrink the size of government and help ensure savings by selling or redeveloping high value properties, consolidating federal space, maximizing the utilization rates of space and streamlining the disposal of unneeded assets.

The bill establishes a Public Buildings Reform Board of members who will identify opportunities to reduce the real property inventory and make recommendations for the sale of up to $8 billion worth of underutilized and vacant federal properties. The bill also requires the GSA to create and publish a single, comprehensive database of all federal real properties, including whether those properties are excess, surplus, underutilized or unutilized to prevent a future stockpiling of unused and underutilized property.

Preparedness

2016/05/20

Dear Friend,

The House considered a slate of important bills this week, including the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act(MilCon/VA). The NDAA is critical legislation we vote on every year to ensure that our national defense and military programs receive the policy direction and resources necessary to confront global threats. This year’s bill builds upon foundations laid in previous years to close the readiness gap, or our military’s ability to respond and do their jobs effectively. It continues to push for policies that minimize costs to taxpayers while maximizing returns for our troops with enhanced and modernized equipment. The NDAA also ensures that the men and women who are honorably serving our country and defending our freedom are taken care of. Our troops will receive a much-deserved raise and the authorization also improves access to high-quality medical care for servicemembers and their families. I was also proud to support the MilCon/VA, which furthers efforts to hold the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) accountable and deliver quality care to America’s veterans. This bill funds initiatives to reform the VA’s electronic health record system through modernization, increases funding for the VA Health Administration and also provides support for claims and appeals processing activities to reduce backlogs.

Another important issue that was addressed on the House floor this week is Congress’ response to the Zika virus. With summer approaching and more people traveling, Zika is spreading and there are now cases in 30 countries including the United States. In order to prevent the transmission of Zika and other mosquito-borne diseases like West Nile, which poses an especially large threat to us in the Central Valley, I voted in favor of legislation that would temporarily eliminate the EPA’s overregulation of pesticides used for mosquito control. By law, all pesticides must be approved by the EPA, but anything used near or on a body of water, a common breeding ground and habitat for mosquitoes, must undergo another round of regulation and receive an authorization permit. Unfortunately, this measure failed, meaning important tools for our defense against potentially deadly diseases will continue to be held up by red tape. Although this legislation did not succeed, the House, with my support, did vote to authorize appropriations for the fight against Zika. This money will be used for research, prevention and treatment efforts as we begin to encounter more cases in the United States and learn more about the virus’ effects. To learn more about the Zika virus, please follow this link to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Members of the California Farm Bureau stopped by the Capitol this week. I spoke to them about the significance of the Valley’s role in California’s agriculture economy and what I’ve been working on, including my legislation to eliminate predator fish, ongoing developments regarding a water bill and other proactive solutions for the drought.

I attended a Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee meeting on Tuesday where I pressed the Army Corps of Engineers about their plans for Reclamation District 17 right here in the Valley. Currently, the Army Corps plans to exclude RD17 from its flood protection plans for bureaucratic reasons. RD17 is home to 46,000 people, a thriving community and soon, the new VA hospital at French Camp. Without flood protection, the Army Corps is putting thousands of lives, the prosperity of the community and the future of this long-awaited VA facility on the line, which is unacceptable.

Click here to watch my exchange with Major General Ed Jackson.

Earlier this week, I enjoyed meeting with students from West Valley Christian School who were visiting from Tracy. We had a great discussion about the bills on the floor of the House this week.

The students of West Valley Christian School had excellent questions about my work in D.C.

As always, I’m happy to connect with you on FacebookTwitterYouTube, or Instagram. It’s great to get your feedback online, and you can always email me here or call either my D.C. (202-225-4540) or Modesto (209-579-5458) offices.

Tomorrow is Armed Forces Day, so don’t forget to thank the servicemembers and veterans in your life for their selfless sacrifice and service.

Wishing you a happy weekend!

Denham Votes to Close Military Readiness Gap and Care for America’s Veterans

2016/05/19

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) this week supported the passage of H.R. 4909, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and H.R. 4974, the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act.

“These bills ensure that our military will be provided with the resources and capabilities to confront threats and that our veterans get the care they deserve,” said Rep. Denham. “I am proud to support the men and women who put their lives on the line every day for our country as well as the ongoing effort to close the readiness gap.”

The NDAA authorizes $618.9 billion in national defense and military personnel program spending. It includes provisions to assist security forces in combating terrorism carried out by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, enhances access to medical care for servicemembers and their families, authorizes a much-deserved pay raise for troops and requires an updated national defense strategy to more accurately reflect evolving threats around the world. It also prohibits the closure of the detention center at Guantanamo Bay and prohibits the transfer of Guantanamo Bay detainees in U.S. facilities.

The Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act provides funding for military construction projects and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This bill also funds initiatives to reform the VA’s electronic health record system through modernization, increases funding for the VA Health Administration and provides support for claims and appeals processing activities to reduce backlogs.

“Our veterans deserve the best care our country can provide,” Denham concluded.

Denham Statement on California High Speed Rail’s Announced Four Year Delay and Money Wasting Scheme

2016/05/18

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) released the following statement concerning the Federal Railroad Administration’s announced changes to the California High Speed Rail Authority’s grant agreement:  

“Every time the voters read the news, the project has changed,” stated Rep. Jeff Denham. “The Obama Administration has just written a blank check and is trying to skirt federal law with so-called stimulus funding. The hard-working American taxpayer has a right to know where their money is being spent and the Administration has failed to provide oversight of a flawed project. Congressional hearings will be coming soon.”

Today, the Obama administration approved, without Congressional notification, another change to its grant agreement with the California High Speed Rail Authority.  The initial construction segment of the project was scheduled for completion in 2018, but now will not be done until the end of 2022, according to a contract revision. There have been multiple revisions to the contract agreement since being funded by the Obama Administration’s so-called stimulus funding package for economic recovery during the great recession. To date, no tracks have been laid for this flawed project.

Denham Votes to Combat Opioid Abuse

2016/05/13

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) voted for a slate of bills this week that aim to combat the growing opioid abuse epidemic. Addiction to opioids claims thousands of lives every year and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 78 Americans die every day as a result of opioid overdose.

“Drug abuse and addiction have devastating effects on individuals, families and communities,” said Rep. Denham. “The opioid epidemic in the Valley is no exception and we must do everything we can to reduce its impact, which is why these bipartisan bills are important steps needed to keep the national conversation going and provide much-needed resources and funding.”

Several of the bills provide support for particularly vulnerable populations suffering from the opioid epidemic, including veterans, pregnant women and newborn children. H.R. 4063 requires the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to maximize the availability to veterans of drugs that counteract the effects of pain management opioids and reverse overdoses. It additionally mandates updated training and education about pain management and safe prescribing practices for drug prescribers at the VA. Two bills also voted on authorize expenditures for support programs for opioid-addicted pregnant women and access to services for newborns born addicted to an illegal drug.

H.R. 5046 creates a new grant program through the Department of Justice (DOJ) that will help support state and local government efforts to combat opioid abuse. Included in this bill is the provision of treatment, augmented collaboration between criminal justice and substance abuse agencies, investigations of illegal opioid distribution, and training for medical professionals. Another bill, H.R. 4641, establishes an inter-agency task force to form and institute best practices for pain management and the prescription of opioids.

“This is a fight that must be won for our children and for our future,” said Rep. Denham.

For our children and our future

2016/05/13

Dear Friend,

This week, with my support, the House passed a package of bills aimed at combating opioid abuse. Opioids are addictive and damaging drugs including morphine, heroine, and prescription pain relievers. An estimated 2.1 million people in the United States suffer from opioid addiction and we have tragically seen a spike in overdoses and deaths related to this epidemic. This is an issue that affects communities across the nation, including ours here in the Valley. This is a fight that must be won for our children and for our future.

The 18 bipartisan bills included in the package take important steps to reduce the impact of the epidemic. Several pieces of legislation that I voted for seek to increase resources and support for particularly vulnerable populations, including veterans, pregnant women and newborn children. Other bills would create a grant program to support state and local government efforts to address addiction and abuse as well as establish an inter-agency task force to form and institute best practices for pain management and the prescription of opioids. The Senate has already passed their own version of opioid abuse legislation, and with the House package green-lit today, both chambers will meet to create a final comprehensive version that can be sent to the President’s desk. I am proud to stand with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to fight this disease and look forward to the final legislation being signed into law.

On Thursday, I stopped by the Healthcare Innovation Expo where I learned about new technologies being used to advance medicine. One of my favorite booths demonstrated how virtual reality can help veterans cope with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The virtual reality gear is being used in behavioral therapy programs to help manage fears and control anxiety. While at the expo, I was also recognized as a “Champion in Healthcare Innovation.” The award is presented to lawmakers who demonstrate continued support of patient-centered medical progress. I am honored to be the voice that fights for those affected by disease and proud to support the dedication and efforts of medical professionals in their fight to maximize quality of life.

One of the booths I visited showed me how their technology to track electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) is holding drug prescribers accountable and reducing the incidence of illegal transactions. This is another great tool we can use to combat opioid abuse.

I met with Debbi Partridge, a Modesto Junior College multimedia technician, who was honored by the White House as a Champion of Change for School Support. She goes above and beyond in her role at MJC to ensure that operations are running smoothly and that fellow staff members and students are getting the support they need.

I sat down with Debbi Partridge, the Valley's own White House Champion of Change, after she took a tour of the Capitol. Thank you, Debbi, for your dedication to our students' success!

Tomorrow, the California Air National Guard’s 144th Fighter Wing will dedicate an F-15 Eagle fighter jet and recognize the city of Modesto at 1PM at the Castle Airport in Atwater. The ceremony will take place as part of the 144th Fighter Wing’s “Cities of Honor” program and Peacekeepers, Peacemakers and Protectors Recognition Day. Modesto’s emblem will be sealed on the nose of plane in recognition of its support of airmen who live and work in the city. My staff will be in attendance and available to answer any questions you may have about assistance for veterans or any other federal issue impacting you. As an Air Force veteran myself, I’m proud to support these efforts to unite our civilian and military communities.

The Millsaps of Modesto stopped by my office and enjoyed a tour of the Capitol this week.

In case you missed it, the Capitol dome in Washington has been under construction for several years as part of a restoration project. The project is coming to an end, which means the scaffolding is coming down. The interior and exterior of the dome will soon be visible and full public tours will begin again. If you are headed to D.C. this summer or fall, make sure to contact my office at (202) 225-4540 or sign up here to arrange a tour of the Capitol and several other sites in Washington.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Denham Named ‘Champion in Healthcare Innovation’

2016/05/12

Rep. Denham was presented with the ‘Champion in Healthcare Innovation’ award Thursday.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) was recognized as a ‘Champion in Healthcare Innovation’ by the Healthcare Leadership Council today at its annual innovation expo. The award is presented to lawmakers in recognition of their ongoing support of patient-centered medical progress.

“It is an honor to be recognized as a ‘Champion in Healthcare Innovation’ and a privilege to be the voice that fights for those who are devastated by disease,” said Rep. Denham. “We must continue to support and advance the efforts of medical professionals in their fight to assure Americans the best quality of life.”

Rep. Denham introduced a healthcare transparency bill, the Senior’s Right to Know Act, which would establish guidelines requiring Medicare Advantage providers to notify program enrollees in a timely manner when they change any portion of their health care plans in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act. Rep. Denham additionally co-sponsored and voted in favor of H.R. 6, the 21st Century Cures Act, a landmark bipartisan bill that would accelerate the cures process for rare diseases. He has voted repeatedly to protect Medicare for seniors and was honored by the Alliance for Patient Access for his commitment to protect the thousands of patients who rely upon the physician-administered medicines under Medicare Part B.

The Healthcare Leadership Council is a coalition of leaders from all disciplines within the field of medicine, with the goal of developing policies and plans to ensure that Americans have access to medical care that is both high-quality and affordable.

Dedication

2016/05/06

Dear Friend,

It’s been a busy week in the Valley!

In the spirit of National Teacher Appreciation Week, I made sure to stop by some of our local schools to visit with students and also to thank the teachers and administrators for their dedication to education.

On Wednesday, I stopped by Bernard Hughes Elementary School in Modesto. While I was there, I got to partake in a wide variety of school operations.  I served up some lunch and later read to a class of enthusiastic first graders. I had the privilege of meeting the Stanislaus County Teacher of the Year, Kris Jensen, who is a dedicated kindergarten through third grade teacher. The student body also invited me to sit in on one of their meetings and speak to some of the students. It’s always great to see young leaders in action and committed to bettering their community.

The Student Body of Hughes Elementary School conducted a very productive meeting – these youngsters have bright futures ahead!

I met Kris Jensen, Stanislaus County's Teacher of the Year, and thanked her for her tireless efforts.

I visited a government class at Tracy High School on Thursday, where we discussed the role of Congress and how our federal government is structured. The students had great questions and were very eager to learn. I also quizzed them with D.C. and congressional trivia – did you know that John Quincy Adams is the only president to have served in the House of Representatives after his presidency?

I had the honor of delivering remarks to veterans in the Class of 2016 at Stanislaus State. Not only did these men and women sacrifice for their country, but they also made the brave decision to return to school and earn an education while balancing a full load of other responsibilities. I thanked the class for their service and recognized them for their scholastic accomplishments. These heroes worked hard for the honors that are being bestowed upon them this weekend and I look forward to seeing what great things they will go on to accomplish.

In addition to recognizing our teachers, I also spent some time thanking the men and women in law enforcement who serve our community. I had the opportunity to attend the Stanislaus County Law Enforcement Memorial ceremony. This event was a beautiful service to commemorate and thank the officers who have died in the line of duty. At the Manteca Law Day lunch, I honored outstanding San Joaquin county officers who not only put their lives on the line every day, but who have also gone above and beyond the call of duty to ensure our safety. Later tonight, I will attend the Modesto Police Department’s annual award banquet. I appreciate and applaud the dedication that these officers and personnel demonstrate every day in their efforts to protect our cities and towns.

The Denair Municipal Advisory Council held their monthly meeting this week and I attended to catch up and discuss the latest issues going on. I talked about the ongoing efforts to conserve water and increase storage as well as local rail projects, including the Amtrak station in Denair.

You can listen in to PowerTalk 1360AM today at three with Jim O'Reilly for an update on my activities in the House.
I’m looking forward to a full weekend of activities – tomorrow, I’ll be kicking off Rina’s Run in Ripon early in the morning and later participating in the Ceres Street Fair. Come out and visit with me and my staff.

Have a great weekend!
