Representing the 4th District of California

Speeches

April 15, 2015 Speeches
The Federal Lands subcommittee meets today to review federal land acquisition policies and their impact on communities and the environment. Last month, this subcommittee received testimony from the government’s land management agencies regarding their 2016 budget requests. All expressed a burning desire to vastly increase their holdings, while admitting to large and growing backlogs of deferred maintenance.
March 25, 2015 Speeches
Even though I disagree heartily with the budgets advanced by the Progressive Caucus, they do an invaluable service to the budget debate by bringing into sharp relief the two very different visions of governance advanced by the two parties. The Progressive budget is a sincere and bold document. Unfortunately it is also wrong. It would hike taxes by $7 trillion over the next ten years...

The Department of the Interior will generate $13.8 billion next year and consume only $13.1 billion, generating a net of $700 million for U.S. taxpayers. The Department should be a net revenue source. After all, the public lands under its jurisdiction – and under the Department of Agriculture with respect to National Forest land – represent vast resources upon which our economic prosperity depends.

Today we meet to review the administration of the National Park Service and to examine the President’s 2016 Budget request. I thank Director Jarvis for being here today.

The Constitutional Crisis: What To Do?

December 4, 2014 Speeches

Executive Amnesty Prevention Act

December 3, 2014 Speeches

The genius of our Constitution can be found in the separation of powers that has preserved our freedom for 225 years.  The American Founders recognized that what had gone so terribly wrong in Europe was that the same organ of government that made the law also enforced that law and adjudicated it.  All the powers were in the same hands.
