Washington, DC – Today, after reports circulated that the Administration is considering an Executive Order to review the locations available for offshore oil and gas drilling, Congressman Salud Carbajal (CA-24) urged the Administration to keep in place the Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program of 2017-2022, which prohibits drilling off the California Coast.
Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) has introduced legislation that would make it easier for tens of thousands of federal firefighters, many of them in California, to get disability benefits.
Firefighters for the federal departments of Defense, Interior, and Agriculture have to prove exactly what job-related experience made them sick to get coverage from the federal government. For instance, if they get cancer, they need to point out which particular incident gave them the disease.
