Watching LaMalfa is boring. The Congressman does not really seem to do very much. The Congressman has successfully gotten one bill signed into law in his 6 years in the House of Representatives (H.R. 2212 Take Federal Lands into trust for the Susanville Indian Rancheria).
Mr. LaMalfa has stated that he has concentrated on inserting amendments into other bills rather than writing his own bills.
Are you sure that you want Representative LaMalfa to represent you regarding the air you must breath and the water you need to drink?
