Video Blog: Natural Resources Committee Jobs Watch - Rep. Denham
Denham: Water project bill would save taxpayer dollars and create jobs in the Central Valley

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 11, 2011 -

House Natural Resources Committee Republicans are committed to putting Americans back to work by enacting policies that embrace America’s abundant natural resources to help create jobs and grow our economy.

The Committee continues its Job Watch series this week with Freshman Committee Member Rep. Jeff Denham (CA-19). His district spans five counties in California’s Central Valley and suffers from some of the highest unemployment in the nation.

Watch Rep. Denham discuss his bipartisan bill, H.R. 1604, which would provide an investment in California’s infrastructure to store and transport one of our most renewable resources, water. H.R. 1604 would streamline duplicative regulations, create jobs and save taxpayer dollars.
