More on Water
State admits a $3 Billion error in their analysis but continues to ignore comprehensive plans that would actually address California’s water needs. Garamendi has offered an updated version of his "Water Plan for All of California"
This bill is critical for California. WRDA authorizes both flood protection projects that save lives and property and needed improvements for our ports and waterways. Rebuilding our crumbling water infrastructure is crucial for American businesses, creating jobs in construction and agriculture while strengthening our ability to export American products around the world.
Reviewing the many horror stories from cruise ships in recent years, it is clear that proper oversight of the industry and consumer protections for passengers are desperately lacking. With this legislation, our goal is to prevent dream vacations from turning into nightmares.

Congressman Garamendi Cosponsors Bipartisan Bill Adding Quagga Mussels to National Invasive Species List
“I’m a cosponsor of this bipartisan legislation, because Lake County residents deserve to be protected from these harmful invasive species," Congressman Garamendi said.
The bipartisan legislation continues the federal government’s commitment at Lake Tahoe by authorizing funding to reduce threats to wildfire, improve water clarity, combat invasive species and restore the environment in the Lake Tahoe Basin.
“Unless changes are made to the flood insurance program, a lot of my constituents will soon be hit hard in their pocketbook. This effect was not intended by the original reform, but it requires an immediate fix. The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act provides some breathing room to prevent some of the worst unintended consequences. This bipartisan legislation is needed and I urge its swift adoption.”
Garamendi Votes for Water Resources Reform & Development Act to Strengthen Flood Protection, Port & Waterway Infrastructure
This bill is extremely important for my constituents and our nation. The levee projects provide life-saving protection for residents throughout California’s flood prone Central Valley. The construction projects will rebuild our crumbling water infrastructure and create jobs. By revitalizing our ports, waterways, and natural habitats, this bill supports business development, including the agriculture businesses in my district that export their products around the world.
Congressman Garamendi denounces piecemeal budgeting and calls on Speaker Boehner and the tea party faction in Congress to let us vote to reopen the government.
Garamendi called for an immediate delay to impending flood insurance rate hikes caused by new flood risk maps produced by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
