Economy & Jobs

  • Garcia voted against the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal that was projected to create 2 million jobs per year, and which gave California billions in funding to make much-needed repairs and improvements to roads, bridges, power grids, water pipes, & broadband internet.

Gun Reform

  • Garcia voted twice against the funding of $115.5 Billion for the Veterans Affairs Department, Military Construction, and related agencies. He also voted against strengthening consumer protections related to medical debt and credit reporting for service members.
