LaMalfa Applauds Governor’s Decision to Allow Clearance of Dead Trees

2019/03/22

(Richvale, CA) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after California Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency to waive environmental regulations and speed up forest management prior to the next wildfire season, such as the removal of dead trees.
 
LaMalfa said: “As the ranking member of the Forestry and Conservation Subcommittee, I welcome today’s move by Governor Gavin Newsom.  This is a recognition that excessive environmental laws are preventing proper forestry work.  Time and again, sound forestry projects have been delayed by costly and time-consuming environmental regulations. The proposal made today is in line with the work I am doing with the Trump Administration to speed up forestry projects in order to reduce the risks of major forest fires. In Congress, we are increasing funds to the Forest Service and scaling back regulations to help tackle the problem of overgrown forests. I’m happy to see California coming along as a partner and focusing on this regulatory problem that government created. If we can work together and get government out of the way, we can improve the health of our forests while simultaneously creating jobs in rural America.”

LaMalfa Announces Increased FEMA Funding for Butte County

2019/03/20

(Richvale, CA) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded an additional $1,148,738.77 in federal funding for Camp Fire recovery in Butte County.
 
On November 9th, the day after the Camp Fire began, President Trump granted a Presidential Declaration of a Major Emergency for Butte County. A federal disaster declaration directs FEMA to provide disaster relief efforts with 75% of the cost being funded by the federal government. Congressman LaMalfa has successfully passed language in Congress, while working with FEMA and the Administration, to increase the federal government’s share to 90%. That funding level represents the same commitment level as the federal response to 9/11 and is not typical in disaster responses. The additional funding received today is a reflection of the federal government adjusting a past claim to reflect an increase in the federal cost share from 75% to 90%.
 
FEMA also announced $12,117,677.40 in funding for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection to reflect the increase to a 90% cost share by the federal government.
 
LaMalfa said: “From the very beginning of this disaster, the federal government has reacted swiftly to help our communities recover. Now that we’ve successfully increased the federal government’s cost share to 90% from the standard 75% for recovery efforts, FEMA is moving quickly to deliver the increased funds into Butte County. We still have a long way to go throughout Butte County to help people fully recover from this disaster. I’m pleased with the Administration for their full attention to our recovery efforts in Northern California.”

LaMalfa Honored with John D. Dingell Award

2019/03/11

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after being presented with the John D. Dingell award for promoting labor-management cooperation in Congress. The award, named after the late Rep. John D. Dingell (D-MI) was presented by Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) and the National Labor Management Public Affairs Committee (LAMPAC).
 
Specifically, Congressman LaMalfa was recognized for his bipartisan legislation with Rep. Kurt Schrader, (D-OR) the Electricity Reliability and Forest Protection Act, which reduced the risk of power outages and catastrophic wildfires by allowing electric utility companies to remove hazardous trees that are at risk of falling on a power line or other electric infrastructure on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) or U.S. Forest Service land. The legislation was signed into law last April.
 
LaMalfa said: “I was happy to have my bill, the Electricity Reliability and Forest Protection Act, signed into law last Congress. Now, utility companies are able to more quickly remove trees or brush that may be a hazard near a power-line before it becomes a serious problem. As we know all too well in Northern California, the threat of catastrophic wildfires is very real, and any steps we can take to prevent them from occurring is a step in the right direction. I’d like to thank LAMPAC for recognizing our hard work and highlighting the spirit of bipartisanship that it took to pass this legislation. Electrical blackouts and wildfires are real problems that affect real lives, and I’m committed to promoting policies that offer common-sense solutions to address them.”

In a press release today, the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) congratulated Rep. LaMalfa and Rep. Schrader for their work to receive this award.
 
“The energy grid is vital to the life, health, and safety of all Americans, and it is critical to the economic and national security of the nation,” said EEI President Tom Kuhn. “Representatives Doug LaMalfa and Kurt Schrader demonstrated tremendous leadership in working together to find solutions that help protect the energy grid and improve grid security, reliability, and resiliency for our customers. Congressman Dingell worked tirelessly to develop consensus on both sides of the aisle and to enact policies to benefit all Americans. It is very fitting that they are this year’s recipients of this distinguished award.”
 
“When it comes to maintaining our energy security, partisanship should never come in the way,” said IBEW International President Lonnie Stephenson. “Representatives LaMalfa and Schrader have shown–just like Congressman Dingell did throughout his career–that lawmakers can cross the aisle and work together to come up with common sense solutions to the challenges faced by this nation. My congratulations to them on their well-deserved award.

LaMalfa Opposes Partisan Legislation to Endanger Election System

2019/03/08

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after opposing H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which passed the House with largely Democrat support.
 
LaMalfa said: “Last Congress, H.R. 1 was the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which allowed American taxpayers to keep more of their hard-earned money where it belongs – in their pockets. In 1995, it was the Congressional Accountability Act to bring more transparency and oversight to Congress. Now, under Democrat leadership, H.R. 1 is a bill designed to re-elect more Democrats to Congress using billions of taxpayer dollars. It weakens election security, promotes shady practices like ballot harvesting, further weakens voter ID laws, impedes free speech, and gives convicted felons the right to vote. None of these things are a good idea – even the ACLU says this bill is unconstitutional. This bill is not for the people, but rather, is full of self-serving policies that only benefit the politicians who authored it. H.R. 1 says a lot about the priorities of Democrat leadership this Congress – themselves.”

The top 10 most egregious provisions of H.R.1, compiled by the House Committee on Administration:
 
  • Creates a 6:1 government match to any small donor contributions of $200 or less in a congressional or presidential campaign, meaning for every $200, the federal government will match $1,200 using taxpayer dollars.
  • Creates a new voucher pilot program that grants eligible voters a $25 voucher to donate to any campaign of their choosing.
  • Weaponizes the Federal Election Commission by altering the current bipartisan makeup of a six-member commission to a partisan five-member commission which will limit free speech and make partisan decisions about election communications.
  • Weakens the voting system of the American people by increasing the election system’s vulnerability and failing to implement the necessary checks and balances regarding who is registering to vote. H.R. 1 will force states to allow online voter registration, automatic voter registration, and same-day voter registration with no safeguards.
  • Raises constitutional concerns under the First Amendment by proposing to limit free speech and imposing vague standards that disadvantage all groups who wish to advocate on behalf of any legislative issue.
  • Diminishes the process of Election Day voting by expanding “no excuse” absentee voting and allowing for any eligible voter to be able to cast their ballot by mail with no additional safeguards to this process.
  • Disregards state voter identification laws by allowing sworn statements to be used in place of identification and allowing for signature verification, which can be submitted through a photo if the voter registers online.
  • Does not provide states adequate enforcement mechanisms to guard against fraud.
  • Impedes states’ ability to determine their registration and voting practices, as protected under Article 1, Section 4 of the Constitution and violates separation of powers by Congress mandating ethics standards for the Supreme Court. H.R. 1 is a constitutional overreach.
  • Forces states to count provisional ballots cast outside of the voter's correct precinct which will inevitably result in the election of candidates at the state and local level by non-qualified residents.

FEMA Rules Large Portions of Oroville Dam Spillway Repairs Ineligible for Federal Reimbursement

2019/03/07

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approved $205 million in federal funds to reimburse costs for the Oroville Dam spillway repairs, but deemed $306 million in spillway reconstruction as not eligible for federal reimbursement.
 
LaMalfa said: “FEMA’s decision not to fully reimburse DWR for Oroville Dam spillway repairs should not come as a total surprise. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Independent Forensic Report have both cited insufficient maintenance and initial design flaws as playing a part in the failure of the spillway. FEMA has reimbursed the state for eligible emergency repairs, but repairs due to maintenance failures as well as the new structures being built are ineligible for federal reimbursement legally. Meanwhile, California prioritized other spending initiatives, such as high-speed rail, over fixing deficiencies of Oroville Dam that led to this crisis, and FEMA is likely to withhold future public assistance funding as a result. That will prove to be a costly mistake. We don’t want FEMA to come up short on other disaster assistance by misapplying funds in this case of dam mismanagement, born out in the forensic report.”
 
Over a year ago, an Independent Forensic Team found DWR had many maintenance failures that helped contribute to the failure of the spillway. FEMA is not allowed to reimburse for disasters caused by negligence or maintenance failures. Much of the needed work on the Oroville Dam spillway is not repair work, but new projects to make the emergency spillway and upper spillway work properly. Those new projects cannot be funded by the federal government under an emergency declaration.

LaMalfa Introduces High-Speed Refund Act

2019/03/06

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after introducing H.R. 1515, the High-Speed Refund Act. This legislation requires that any discretionary grant funds provided by the Department of Transportation (DOT) for high-speed rail (HSR) development in California be reimbursed to the Federal Government. The funds will then be used to significantly increase spending on important freight and highway projects.
 
LaMalfa said: “After countless blunders, skyrocketing costs, and more uncertainty than ever, it’s time to cut our losses and kill California’s misguided high-speed rail project. This project was doomed from the start. The total projected cost has now ballooned to around $100 billion, more than double the initial estimate. American taxpayers should not be on the hook for California’s inability to undertake such an enormous, yet unnecessary project. That’s why I’ve introduced the High-Speed Refund Act, which would require California to refund all federal funding for HSR and repurpose it to freight and highway projects that would actually be both beneficial and economically viable, such as the widening of Highway 70 in Northern California. Undertaking the HSR project was a huge mistake, and taxpayers deserve a refund.”
 
To reclaim the inappropriately given taxpayer funding, and ensure no more of it can be wasted on this failure, H.R. 1515 directs the Secretary of Transportation to take “such action as is necessary to require “to get all discretionary funds provided to California for high-speed rail corridor development back and returned to the general fund of the Treasury. The High-Speed Refund Act will also increase the authorization for the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant program by $3.5 billion, the amount of money California owes to federal taxpayers, to ensure it can be reinvested in worthwhile infrastructure projects.
 
H.R. 1515 also recognizes the continued failures of the California High-Speed Rail Authority to present, plan, and construct its project, including the following:
 
  • When presented to voters in 2008, California’s high-speed rail system was projected to cost $33.6 billion for a line from San Francisco to Anaheim, increasing $40 billion to add lines to Sacramento and San Diego. The expanded project’s cost swelled to more than $100 billion, with the San Francisco to Anaheim line costing more than $77 billion, and now the State of California’s high-speed rail plan no longer includes any stops in Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Anaheim, or San Diego.
  • When presented to voters in 2008, California claimed the Federal Government would pay between a quarter and a third of the cost of the rail system. The Federal Government had no such grant program at the time, and the $4 billion invested in the project represents less than 5 percent of the updated cost projections.
  • At the current level of project employment it would take nearly 400 years to accomplish the 1,000,000 job-years promised by the California High-Speed Rail Authority.
  • No significant private companies have invested in the California high-speed rail project.
  • The grant creation and award process for the California high-speed rail project did not incorporate the best practices of Government funding.
  • The grant agreement between the Federal Government and California did not require a feasible funding package to be prepared before awarding funds, which similar mass transit programs require.
  • The grant agreement between the Federal Government and California did not require a minimum operable segment before awarding funds, which similar mass transit programs require.
  • The grant agreement between the Federal Government and California did not require new high-speed trains to run on the new high-speed rail system.
  • The Department of Transportation inappropriately allowed the State of California to spend Federal money without a required State funding match.
  • The California High-Speed Rail Authority repeatedly failed to meet deadlines and underestimated costs.
  • The Federal Rail Administration, having recognized the failure of California to build even a small fraction of the originally approved high-speed rail system, has announced they will deobligate nearly $1 billion in Federal funding.
  • There are dozens of worthy infrastructure projects that would improve the quality of life for every day Americans and could easily have been designed, approved, built, and have benefitted local economies in the time it took for California’s high-speed rail proposal to fail.

LaMalfa, Garamendi Introduce Sites Reservoir Project Act

2019/02/28

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) and Congressman John Garamendi (D-CA) introduced the Sites Reservoir Project Act (H.R.1453) to provide federal support for the construction of Sites Reservoir and related water infrastructure in Colusa and Glenn Counties.
 
LaMalfa said: “Water storage projects, such as Sites Reservoir, are absolutely critical to securing the future of our state’s water supply. It’s important that we have the infrastructure to save more water during wet years so we can prepare for the dry ones California sees all too often. Sites is the most effective project in the state, providing more storage per dollar invested than any other proposed project. I’m proud of this bipartisan effort and will continue to fight to ensure this much-needed project moves forward.”
 
“Construction of Sites Reservoir would bring California closer to achieving a drought-resilient water system. Our state needs to make forward-looking investments to meet its future water supply needs, and Sites will benefit farmers, precious ecosystems, and our communities.” said Congressman Garamendi (D-CA). “I am proud to sponsor the bipartisan Sites Reservoir Project Act, building upon the nearly $1.2 billion in public funding for the project secured to date.”
 
“Congressmen Garamendi and LaMalfa have been tireless champions of Sites Reservoir and today's introduction of the Sites Reservoir Project Act brings us one step closer to realizing our shared goal of building the reservoir. Sites would provide critically needed water supply reliability for the environment, farms and cities and its importance for the future of California cannot be understated," said Sites Joint Powers Authority Chairman Fritz Durst.
 
The Sites Reservoir Project Act (H.R.1453) would direct the Bureau of Reclamation to complete a necessary feasibility study for the project and, if deemed feasible, authorize additional funding and technical support.
 
Sites Reservoir would provide 1.8 million acre-feet of off-stream water storage capacity for California and help local communities prepare for droughts. The reservoir would be owned and operated by the Sites Joint Powers Authority, a regional consortium of local water agencies and counties formed in 2010. To date, more than $1.2 billion in public funding has been committed to the Sites Reservoir Project, including $816 million from the State Water Bond (2014 Proposition 1), $449 million low-interest financing from the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced in November 2018, and federal funding from the Bureau of Reclamation for the feasibility study and related work.

LaMalfa Opposes Legislation to Infringe on Second Amendment Rights

2019/02/28

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after voting against H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act. This legislation seeks to impose “universal” background checks that would only ultimately apply to law-abiding citizens and infringe on Second Amendment rights. H.R. 8 passed the House 240-190 with primarily Democrat support.

 

LaMalfa said: “By definition, criminals do not comply with the law. So what makes my Democrat colleagues think that tightening background checks on law-abiding Americans will decrease gun violence? Criminals get their guns from the black market, the so-called dark web, or by other illicit means, and none of the major shootings in this country would have been prevented by these laws. This legislation is a farce that would only make life more difficult for honest Americans and jeopardize their safety – while not so much as inconveniencing real criminals. We cannot allow California’s radical gun laws to be imposed upon all Americans.”

 

In an investigation spanning 72 attempts over a 2 ½ year period, undercover agents found that zero private sellers would knowingly complete a sale of a firearm to a buyer they had reason to believe was prohibited or lived in another state.

 

A link to the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) report on the government investigation into illegal online gun sales commissioned by gun control activists can be found here.

LaMalfa Votes to Uphold National Emergency Declaration at the Southern Border

2019/02/26

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after voting against H.J. Res 46, a joint resolution to terminate the national emergency related to the U.S.-Mexico border, declared by the President on February 15, 2019. The House passed the measure 245-182, with largely Democrat support.
 
LaMalfa said: “The adoption of this resolution today by House Democrats is a familiar political stunt that we have come to expect from this Congress. It only highlights the lack of urgency amongst Democratic leadership to address the national security crisis that has been brewing unchecked at our southern border for decades. Their unwillingness to agree on a deal to secure our border has left the President with no choice but to take this action. Congress gave the President the power to reallocate these specific funds in the event of an emergency, and Congress authorized the construction of a border barrier more than a decade ago. We are a nation of laws, and I support the President’s decision to enforce the law. Whether Democrats want to admit it or not, this is a humanitarian and national security crisis, and requires we take meaningful steps to fix it.”
