In 48 hours, the House will vote on a resolution to stop the Iran Nuclear Treaty. I know the President chooses not to call it a treaty, but it is a treaty in everything but name, with international ramifications as great as any treaty Congress has ever considered. Because treaties have profound implications to the life of this nation, the Constitution requires they be ratified by a 2/3 vote of the Senate. Yet in this post-constitutional era of Obama’s America, it now requires 2/3 of both houses to reject it.

This spillway project is a reminder that the previous generation built these great dams not only to protect us against water shortages in dry years, but also to protect us against floods in wet ones. This combination of water storage and flood protection is what makes it possible to sustain a thriving and prosperous human population throughout this region.

Meanwhile, right now – as we speak – a catastrophic wildfire is raging in the King’s Canyon region on the southern boundary of this very same district.

7/23/15 H.R. 1599 – Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015: YES.  This bill creates a uniform system across the U.S. to govern the labeling of so-called “genetically modified” foods.  Mankind has genetically modified crops and livestock since the dawn of recorded history (it’s called cross-breeding, and it gives us seedless grapes and sweeter corn).
