Armed Services Committee Member Garamendi Discusses Beale Priorities with Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Commander

"This future command relationship between Beale’s 9th Reconnaissance Wing and Air Combat Command’s 25th Air Force will better align our nation’s critical ISR command and infrastructure to be effective supporting our brave servicemembers in dangerous situations overseas," Armed Services Committee Member Garamendi said. "I’m proud to represent a community with such an important mission and will continue doing everything I can to make sure that Beale Air Force Base’s vital mission is well supported."

Garamendi Votes to Prevent Transportation Shutdown

"This bipartisan legislation will keep our transportation system running, our businesses open, and American workers on the job. It earned my support because it defuses an immediate crisis of a transportation shutdown and gives us time to work on a needed multiyear transportation bill," said Congressman Garamendi.

Garamendi Signs Discharge Petition to Compel Vote for Wildfire Disaster Aid Funding

"This commonsense bipartisan legislation would enable us to better protect our communities and land from the dangerous spread of wildfires," said Garamendi. "The historic drought in the West has turned California into a tinderbox. While these are both natural disasters, they are both within our control to effectively manage."

Garamendi Supports Bipartisan Job Training Reform Bill that Heads to President’s Desk

"America is the land of second chances. When forces beyond our control knock us down, we get back up again," said Congressman Garamendi. "This bipartisan job training bill will help American workers sharpen their skills to land secure middle-class employment at the businesses that need their skills. It will more effectively leverage the resources at our community colleges and bring more out-of-school youth and Americans with disabilities into the workforce. Simply put, it will ensure that more people can Make It In America once again."

Garamendi Supports Immediate Action to Improve Safety of Crude Oil Shipped by Rail in Letter to Secretary of Transportation Foxx

The Members wrote, "We are especially concerned with the high risks involved with transporting lighter, more flammable crude in densely populated areas. Should spills or explosions occur, as we have seen over the last year, the consequences could be disastrous, costing lives, damaging property, and harming the environment. While we are pleased with the many actions that DOT has taken thus far and we believe that your agency is making steady progress, we must still emphasize the utmost importance of demonstrated compliance with federal regulations by the railroad and petroleum industries.  We believe there must be accountability and comprehensive oversight, as well as adherence to the most stringent of standards."

Congressman Garamendi Meets with His Veteran Advisory Group for Frank Conversation on VA Services in Northern California

"As your representative in Congress, I need to have a clear understanding of all the challenges our veterans in the community face. I heard several related yet different concerns about the VA today. I also heard that overall, the care being delivered is still high quality, albeit sometimes with unacceptable delays," Congressman Garamendi said. "Our lawmakers in Washington need to understand what’s working and what’s not. I heard concerns about demand of services outstripping supply, programs underfunded, procedures poorly conceived or not properly followed, and policies that need to be changed. This was a productive meeting, and I will take what I learned back to my colleagues."

Congressman Garamendi’s Statement on Passage of Iraq Amendment and Defense Appropriations Bill

"Across the political spectrum, there is strong opposition to America entering a third Iraq War, and I share this view," said Congressman Garamendi. "There is deep concern that a slippery slope could land us in the middle of Iraq’s civil war. As elected Representatives, we must have a serious debate about our actions there. With this vote, the People’s House took their responsibility seriously by reasserting that only Congress can send U.S. forces to war."

700+ Attend Congressman Garamendi's Job Fair in Woodland for Job Opportunities, Mentorship, and Resume Review

"When more than 1,000 people attended my Fairfield Job Fair last December, I knew we tapped into a serious need in the 3rd District," Congressman Garamendi said. "These events are always bittersweet. My staff and I are happy to do all we can to help people get a boost in their job search, but it's disheartening to know just how great the demand is for these opportunities. I've already given my staff instructions to begin planning the next one."

Congressman Garamendi’s Amendment to Help Farmers Hard Hit by Drought Unable to Overcome Majority Opposition in House

"Farmers in my district have been hit hard by horrific drought conditions, and they’re not alone. This is a problem felt throughout California and in ten other states. My amendment would have kept farms operating through the immediate implementation of water conservation systems. It’s unfortunate the House of Representatives didn’t give my amendment the consideration it deserves. There are farmers who are losing everything due to conditions completely out of their control," said Congressman Garamendi.
