Orange County is continuing to heal from a senseless shooting at a church in Laguna Woods earlier this summer. Yesterday, I joined community members for an evening of music to honor the congregation and Dr. John Cheng, who sacrificed his life for others. https://t.co/SGhc8ZWlI6

Corporate lobbyists fought to defund the IRS so it would be easier for corporations to evade taxes. Giving the IRS more resources is about big corporations finally paying their fair share—and stopping everyday Americans from having to pick up the slack. https://t.co/ssNIxBvwFR

Californians know how special our public lands and national parks are. I'm so proud that two years ago today, the bipartisan #GreatAmericanOutdoorsAct was signed into law. It's the largest single investment in these public treasures in American history! ☀️🏞️🏕️

Congress has passed several bills to make military housing safer for families, but few improvements have actually been made. My colleagues and I today introduced bipartisan legislation that would hold private housing contractors accountable to the law. https://t.co/YrF0ZnkT3L

Orange County values safe communities. I proudly voted to ban assault weapons last week, but we need multiple strategies to tackle the gun violence epidemic. I've hosted events on safe gun storage, and I'm continuing to push for overdue measures like mandatory background checks.

ICYMI: The House passed a proposal from @RepJoeNeguse, @RepLizCheney, and me to boost pay for federal firefighters on Friday. Officials estimate that some crews in the west are 75% understaffed. Our bill is crucial to rebuilding this vital workforce that keeps communities safe.

Whistleblowers play an invaluable role in rooting out waste, fraud, and abuse in government—and they must be protected. @RepSpeier and I are spearheading a resolution to recognize these brave and selfless Americans by making July 30th "National Whistleblower Appreciation Day."

We need to do more to keep families safe from wildfires, droughts, and other natural disasters worsened by climate change. The House just passed my proposals to boost firefighter pay, extend a key water conservation program, and streamline disaster research. The Senate must act.

Today, I proudly joined my House colleagues in voting to reinstate a ban on assault weapons, a key step in our fight for safer communities. However, I'm disappointed that we weren't given an opportunity to vote on other public safety bills, including my Mental Health Justice Act. https://t.co/s1PUk3gb1V

Hate crimes against Asian American and Pacific Islanders were up 177% in California last year. I'm urging Congress to invest in community-based approaches that'll help curb this unacceptable surge in hate. More from a recent video on all my 2023 budget requests 👇

For 32 years, the #AmericansWithDisabilitiesAct has protected job seekers, helped students thrive, and empowered people to participate in our democracy. I'm pushing to further strengthen the ADA so that all Americans with disabilities have equal protection under the law.

The House just passed a bipartisan bill to boost American manufacturing, lower costs, and strengthen U.S. leadership in the technology of the future. The CHIPS and Science Act, which will make our economy more globally competitive, is headed to the President's desk for signature.

No one should face long-term financial harm for living their truth. And yet, transgender and nonbinary Americans regularly lose their credit histories after legally changing names. I'm proud @FSCDems just approved @RepPressley's and my bill to better protect these consumers.

Abortion isn't taboo; it's essential health care. Every American should be free to make their own medical decisions. Thanks, @jodihicks, for stopping by and decking my staff and I out with t-shirts that'll help us spread the word that abortion is a freedom issue.

The CEO of a major gun manufacturer said he's unwilling to add safety features to his company's guns because "customers are not interested." That puts us all at risk. That's like saying Americans should get to buy faulty appliances even if they'll burn down the house next door.

Weapons shouldn't have fewer safety features than cell phones. Today, I asked firearm manufacturers why they won't put fingerprint scanners on all their guns, which could prevent up to 40% of accidental deaths.

Patients are 3x to 6x more likely to be forced out of network for mental health treatment. My new bill with @SenWarren and @RepCardenas increases oversight of insurance companies that fail to cover mental health and empowers consumers to report violations.

I stood up to leaders of both parties and opposed earmarks—meaning funding for specific projects in a district—because they invite corruption. Lawmakers running for reelection should not be allowed to divert taxpayer dollars to pet projects at home.

We need to be backing up our gratitude for veterans with action. I sat down with our office's Veteran and Servicemember Liaison, Sasha, to discuss some of my bipartisan projects that'll help veterans, including my bill to help veteran-owned small businesses get federal contracts.

Hate groups, scammers, and partisan interests sent out misleading information on the 2020 census, which caused confusion and undermined public trust in the process. I spoke up during a recent @OversightDems meeting to advocate for legislation that cracks down on such abuse.

California is suffering its worst drought in 1,200 years. I have a bill that would renew a key program to conservation efforts. I’m grateful that Southern CA-based @mwdh2o, the largest wholesale water provider in the U.S., is backing my proposal. Testimony from today ⬇

After the Great Recession, Congress reined in Wall Street and helped level the playing field for families. The Dodd Frank Act, which was signed into law 12 years ago today, made clear that healthy, capitalist economies need guardrails—for example, the @CFPB!

Extremists have indicated they'll use every trick in the book to prevent Americans from obtaining abortions, including through legal home delivery. My colleagues and I want to know how carriers intend to respect the freedom of Americans who seek abortion medication via mail ⬇️

Corporations lobbied to defund the IRS so the ultra-wealthy could get away with cheating taxes. Families and small businesses are paying the price, with millions waiting months or years for tax refunds because the agency lacks resources. I'm urging Congress to fully fund the IRS.

Great news! The House just approved my proposal to digitize important documents veterans need to apply for GI benefits, home loans, health care, and more. I sat down with Sasha, our office's Veteran and Servicemember Liaison, earlier this month to discuss my bipartisan push ⬇

My colleagues and I just voted to enshrine the right to same-sex and interracial marriage into federal law. The Respect for Marriage Act also requires officials to recognize out-of-state marriages regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin—no matter state law.

I'm committed to rooting out corruption at all levels of government, including within @DeptofDefense. Last week, members of both parties approved my proposal to beef up the ban on top Pentagon officials owning stock in major defense contractors. https://t.co/aD8Fq4H1lw

Unchecked climate change will drive up food prices, shrink water supply, and cost the United States billions of dollars in disaster response. It's fiscally irresponsible to delay climate action. https://t.co/hdeMO5WGP3

Social Security is a lifeline for millions of families. Congress needs to pass the Social Security 2100 Act, which would prevent upcoming budget cuts, eliminate waiting periods for people with disabilities, and put more money in Americans' pockets. https://t.co/eed0GZemKV

Tim’s Act continues to pick up momentum, with new cosponsors every day! Wildland firefighters are woefully under compensated — and it’s long past time to change it. Our bill will provide these heroic men and women the benefits they deserve.

Local Congress members are protesting plans to let Amplify Energy use a streamlined, opaque permitting process to repair and restart use of its pipeline that spilled 25,000 gallons of crude oil in waters off the coast of Huntington Beach last fall. https://t.co/CEDpJObDpK

@POTUS
We should repeal the liability shield that often protects gun manufacturers from being sued for the death and destruction caused by their weapons. They’re the only industry in the country that has this kind of immunity. It’s outrageous. It must end.

In the first quarter of 2022: ExxonMobil made $5.4 billion BP made $6.2 billion Chevron made $6.3 billion And they're *still* allowed to raise gas prices on working people. Enough. It's time for Congress to take action and ban Big Oil's price gouging.

I'm happy to hear that @AbbottNews reached a deal with the @FDA to reopen the closed infant formula plant, but we have to address the systemic issues that got us here in the first place. It is unacceptable that only *three* companies control the entire infant formula market.

Eradicating abortion access is "essentially a death sentence for many women and girls" who will be forced to bring their pregnancy to full term, says law professor @MicheleBGoodwin, who notes maternal morbidity for Black people is 3.5 times higher than their white counterparts.
