Rep. LaMalfa Votes Against Continuing Spending, Borrowing Increases Without ReformsRepresentative Doug LaMalfa (CA-1) comments on his opposition to a blanket debt ceiling increase that fails reduce spending or address the federal government's unsustainable borrowing, which equals about 40 cents of every dollar spent.
Rep. Doug LaMalfa speaks on the floor of the House to urge the Senate and President Obama to pass the Full Faith and Credit Act, which would ensure that the government continues to meet it's obligations in the event of an impasse in budget negotiations. Senate Democrats and the President have refused to support the common-sense measure to protect the nation's credit rating, military personnel, Social Security and other essential services.
LaMalfa Passes Regulatory Relief Amendment for Farms, Ranches and ForestryRep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) today announced passage of an amendment to the House Energy and Water Appropriations providing relief to farms, ranches and forestry work by ending excessive regulatory overreach. The Clean Water Act (CWA) exempts routine agricultural work, such as plowing, harvesting and the maintenance of drainage ditches, from permitting requirements. However, overzealous federal agencies had interpreted other portions of the Act to require cumbersome and expensive permits, which often prevented otherwise normal agricultural work. LaMalfa’s amendment eliminates funding for regulation of activities identified as exempt in the CWA and was adopted by voice vote.
