Congressman Garamendi has been closely working on, these water projects, including desperately needed levee improvements.
Garamendi Votes Against Bill that would Escalate Modern Nuclear Arms Race and Make Shortsighted Cuts to Alternative Energy
The bill includes $8.7 billion to maintain America’s nuclear weapons stockpile, $526 million more than FY 2015. Garamendi fears this increase in spending to support our already bloated nuclear weapons program, particularly in the context of delicate diplomacy with Iran and Russia, could trigger a chain reaction that would accelerate a modern nuclear arms race.
"The changes to the BDCP just confirm our fear that this project is not about restoring the environment,” Congressman Garamendi said.
“This legislation strengthens the Coast Guard’s ability to protect our nation and safeguard maritime commerce. It does so by providing budget stability and funds to address the many unmet capital project needs of the Coast Guard.”

DeFazio, Garamendi to GOP Leadership: Don’t Hold Coast Guard Funding Hostage to Push Political Agenda
The Coast Guard is currently underfunded to meet its mission goals, and now House Republican leadership wants to shut it down. This would force our service members to serve their nation without pay. It would increase dangers on our seas. Instead of shutting down our security, we should immediately fund Homeland Security operations.
