Rep. Peters Statement on the Retirement Announcement of Rep. Darrell Issa
Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement after Congressman Darrell Issa announced he will retire at the end of his term:
“Congratulations to Darrell Issa on his retirement from the United States House of Representatives. Darrell and I did not know each other before I came to Congress, but he was among the first to welcome me, and we pledged to work together when we agreed on something that was right for the country or our region.
"While Darrell and I disagree on many fundamental issues, we have in fact worked together on moving nuclear waste away from the coast, fixing immigration rules for skilled workers, and reducing pollution and boosting trade at the Mexican border. Darrell played a pivotal role in our delegation’s work together to secure $500 million to modernize the San Ysidro Border Crossing, a priority and commitment I made before I was first elected in 2012.
"I wish him, Kathy, and the Issa family all the best upon his retirement later this year."
