The RVERS project would consolidate 160 Delta-focused agency employees into a new scientific research and monitoring station on 10 acres of a former Army base located on the Sacramento River. This consolidation will enhance opportunities for first-class collaborative scientific partnerships, while improving efficiency and reducing costs over time.
"California's seniors, and every Californian who will become a senior, have good reason to be concerned about the changes to Medicare that almost every Republican in Congress voted to implement," said Congressman Garamendi, who has made protecting the Medicare guarantee a top priority. "The Ryan-Republican plan to end the Medicare guarantee would raise premiums paid by California seniors in the traditional Medicare program, on average, by at least $1,200 a year. This is effectively a regressive tax increase targeting middle class and lower income seniors, and so long as I'm in Congress, I'll do all I can stop their plan from becoming law."
“The Chinese government is cheating, and it’s killing American jobs,” said Congressman Garamendi. “Instead of supplying cheap rhetoric, President Obama has fought back, so American businesses and workers can compete with fair trade policy. In California, we know that clean energy supports the jobs of the present and the future. Through smart public policy, we can Make It In America, so America can make it once again.”
"The Delta is an economic engine for the Sacramento-San Joaquin region, and all of California; the SAFE Levee Act would help it stay that way," said Congressman Garamendi (D-Fairfield). "For decades I have fought to protect Northern California from short-sighted water grabs and advocated for a comprehensive plan to meet the water needs of all Californians. Such a plan must include robust flood protection."
“John Garamendi is a leader in Congress in trying to bring manufacturing jobs back to America, and he knows there is no great manufacturing country on the face of the Earth where the government and the private sector don’t work together,” said President Clinton at the rally sponsored by the Davis College Democrats and the California Democratic Party. “Farmers are supposed to be self-reliant, but there’s not a farmer on Earth who doesn’t understand that when bad weather comes or bad prices come or natural disasters occur, ‘We’re all in this together’ works better than ‘You’re on your own.’”
“By assembling regional leaders interested in growing our manufacturing sector, we've assembled a brain trust ready to Make It In America and create good jobs,” Congressman Garamendi said. “This is patriotic capitalism at work: building the middle class, growing our economy, and keeping America competitive as a global leader.”
"We can and we must pass a bipartisan farm bill,” said Congressman John Garamendi. "For months, I have lent my voice to a massive and growing chorus of farmers that have pleaded with House Leadership to bring this vital legislation to the floor, so we can have an honest debate. The time for obstruction is over. The time for action is now."
At both events, veterans emphasized the need for greater communication from government agencies about services available to help them. Garamendi asked veterans at both events to get out to their networks two programs available right now to help veterans: the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, which entitles many businesses to a $2,400 and $9,600 tax credit to hire veterans, and the Veterans Retraining and Assistance Program, which entitles qualified veterans to receive up to 12 months of education assistance. The veterans in turn asked the Congressman to continue focusing like a laser on services to help veterans find jobs, which he promised to do.
"These businesses display the best of American businesses, a risk taking entrepreneurial spirit, skilled workmanship, and a strong work ethic," said Congressman Garamendi. "Both fulfill important societal needs. Endives provide nutrition and variety to America's diet, and Northern California's commuters understand that road safety products prevent one mishap from becoming a tragedy."
"The KC-10 CNS/ATM program is of particular interest to our communities given the presence of 27 KC-10 aircraft at Travis Air Force Base," the Members of Congress wrote. "We would ask that you consider performing the modifications and upgrades at Travis AFB, rather than sending the aircraft to a depot."
