    Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) opposed a so-called drought relief bill that wouldn’t create any new water but would weaken the Endangered Species Act, gut environmental protection laws, and put commercial fishing jobs at risk. The Western Water and American Food Security Act (H.R. 2898) has drawn opposition from a number of groups and President Obama has promised to veto the bill. “There is no doubt that California is hurting from this drought,” said Davis. “However, I reject the notio...

    Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) opposed a partisan effort in the House to undermine a proposed rule to fight climate change. The bill would delay a recent ruling by the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce carbon emissions, sometimes referred to as greenhouse gas, by states and existing fossil-fuel power plants, resulting in a veto threat from President Obama. “The health and safety of the American people should be our top priority,” said Rep. Davis. “Climate change is already havi... Read more

    Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) opposed House legislation to create a special exemption and ignore environmental law over the Keystone XL Pipeline approval process. “This bill essentially says that a Canadian company does not have to follow the same rules as American companies,” said Davis. “I cannot recall the U.S. Congress ever working so hard on behalf of a Canadian oil company, TransCanada. Furthermore, Keystone will have virtually no impact on job creation and an unnoticeable effec... Read more

    The House is back in session after a long election season, and we have a lot of work to do before the end of the 113th Congress. First, we must pass an appropriations bill to fund the government beyond the current December 11 deadline. I would prefer to see a full year appropriations bill that takes a government shutdown off the table and gives businesses, federal employees, and citizens who depend on federal programs the confidence that government services will not be interrupted.

    Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) opposed an effort in the House to ignore environmental law over the Keystone XL Pipeline approval process. “This bill is essentially an earmark for a Canadian oil company,” said Davis. “Keystone will have virtually no impact on job creation and an unnoticeable effect on gas prices. The project is very high on environmental risks and very low on reward, and certainly not worth ignoring our environmental laws.” The bill exempts Keystone from all federal per... Read more

    Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) opposed a House bill designed to block President Obama’s plan to limit carbon pollution for new power plants. The bill would further restrict the EPA from making future rulings to reduce pollution. “We have an obligation to future generations to leave the planet in better shape than how we got it,” said Davis. “Severe weather events from climate change, such as super storms and droughts, are causing real economic losses. Pollution also takes a health-rela... Read more
