LaMalfa Watch

Plumas County Democrats are committed to providing legislative tracking on our congressional representative, Doug LaMalfa. This site will include information on the bills that LaMalfa co-signs and LaMalfa’s voting record. We will also try to include information on the segment of the population that potentially benefits or is potentially harmed by the passage or failure of a bill. Due to the number of congressional bills that are introduced each year, we will limit our research to those bills which impact American values, civil rights, economic well-being, safety, health, and public lands and wildlife.

LaMalfa supported H.J.Res. 69 / February 17, 2017

H.J. Res. 69 Providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the final rule of the Department of the Interior relating to “Non-Subsistence Take of Wildlife, and Public Participation and Closure Procedures, on National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska”

Passage of this bill allows killing mothers bears, coyotes, and wolves and their young in their dens on Alaskan wildlife refuges. It also allows bears to be trapped using body gripping devices and hunted from planes. It is intended to allow an increase in ungulate populations which which will benefit hunters. Critics cite no evidence that that the killing of predators will result in healthy ungulate populations. Overpopulation of prey species is more likely to result leading to starvation and disease. Animals lose/ Hunters win.

LaMalfa supported HJ Res. 41 / February 14, 2017

HJ Res. 41 repeals Section 1504 of Dodd-Frank. It is a regulatory rule requiring publicly traded companies to disclose payments by resource extraction, including oil, minerals, and gas, if payments exceed $100,00 in a year.  repealing this rule allows U.S. companies to be more competitive but dealings are less opaque. Public citizens lose / Businesses and corporations win.

H.R. Res. 44  Disapproving the rule submitted by the Department of the Interior relating to Bureau of Land Management regulations that establish the procedures used to prepare, revise, or amend land use plans pursuant to the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976.
