It is impressive, the legislation that Jeff Denham has authored or cosponsored during his first term.
One is his bipartisan Veteran Skills to Jobs Act, which will create a skill certification process that will help vets secure good jobs. Denham also sponsored an amendment to prohibit the use of funds for the $98 billion high-speed rail project that has no private investors.
He co-sponsored the Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act that permits water storage project construction throughout California.
Other important bills that Denham has co-sponsored include: Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act, Regulations From The Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2011; Defending America's Affordable Energy Act; and the American Job Protection Act.
Never miss a local story.
A special shout-out to Denham for the jobs fair at the Stanislaus County Fairground on Aug. 22. That's what I call fully engaged public service.
