Legislative Priorities

Agriculture is the cornerstone of Ventura County’s economy, supporting thousands of jobs throughout our region. It is also a proud part of our heritage, giving our community its unique beauty. In Congress, I have worked hard to support our farmers, farmworkers, and businesses that help feed the nation.

We have a sacred responsibility to those who have served our country in uniform. As a daughter, sister, and niece of veterans, I take no responsibility more personally and seriously. When I came to Congress, the very first committee I asked to serve on was the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee. Both here in Ventura County and at the national level, I have made it my priority to put our nation’s veterans first. That means helping our servicemembers transition back into civilian life and caring for our veterans by ensuring they all receive the timely, high-quality healthcare and benefits they have earned and deserve. It also means tackling veterans homelessness and unemployment and addressing high suicide rates that continue to plague our nation’s heroes. Finally, as more and more women join our Armed Forces and return home after their service, I’ve made it a special focus to ensure that the VA is prepared for the changing veteran demographics. Women represent the fastest-growing veteran population and the VA needs to adapt to meet their needs. That means making sure the VA offers gender-specific healthcare, addressing the unique circumstances leading to female veteran suicide, and providing critical wrap-around services like job-training, child care, and caregiver assistance. It’s long past time to recognize the contributions that all veterans, female and male, have made to our great nation.

We must invest in our nation’s infrastructure including our airports, roads, bridges, and waterways that are vital to the movement of people and goods across our country. As a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I have been working to address the infrastructure challenges facing Ventura County and the nation.

As Ventura County’s Representative in Congress, I view everything I do through the lens of how it will create jobs and grow our economy. From our ports, to our large and small businesses, to our naval base, to our agricultural community, I strive to advance federal policy that will support our diverse job creators.

The 26th District

The district includes most of Ventura County and a portion of Los Angeles County, including the cities of Oxnard, Santa Paula, Fillmore, Camarillo, Newbury Park, Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, and Calabasas. If you are interested in browsing district-specific population statistics, you can look up Census data for the 26th District. I am honored to serve the residents of the 26th Congressional District of California.

Happy birthday to my friend and hero, Dolores Huerta! A civil rights icon, labor organizer, feminist, activist, and trailblazer, Dolores is one of the most influential social justice leaders of our time. Her passion and fortitude serve as an inspiration for so many people across generations. ...Dolores’ impact is immeasurable, and her work continues to shape the landscape of America towards what is right and just. #VivaDolores #SiSePuede

As a mother and grandmother, I know all too well the importance of creating positive learning environments for children that are not only accessible and support children's growth and development but are also engaging and fun. I recently had the opportunity to visit the future site of the ...KidSTREAM Children’s Museum in Camarillo, where creativity and a sense of wonder will be nurtured for children across our region.

In this incredible space, children will have immersive experiences in the fields of science and technology while developing critical skills in reading and mathematics. Through kidSTREAM, we are investing in our future while children explore, play, and discover.

I am proud to have had the opportunity to work in close partnership with the City of Oxnard for several years now, and it is because of this collaborative effort that we secured over $3.8 million to replace aging cast iron waterline pipes at risk of failure throughout the city.

These ...projects will not only help ensure residents and businesses in Oxnard have access to clean and reliable water services, but these resources are an investment in our critical infrastructure and our future. These investments are also creating good-paying jobs, bolstering economic opportunity, and building the middle class from the bottom up and the middle out.

Irresponsible firearm sellers have long contributed to the gun violence epidemic by neglecting critical background checks and allowing guns to end up in the wrong hands.

Today marks a significant step towards preventing gun violence by holding firearm sellers accountable and expanding ...background check requirements for gun purchases.

Thanks to the Biden-Harris Administration and the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, we are taking action to mitigate the traumatic and devastating effects of gun violence in America – and we are saving lives!

Today, the Arizona Supreme Court issued a draconian and dangerous ruling against women and access to reproductive health care. This ruling allows for the enforcement of a near-total ban on abortion across the state, based on a law that predates the state’s ratification.

Reinstating this... 160-year-old law stems from an extreme agenda pursued by extremist politicians and judges that not only are dismantling our democracy but jeopardizing the lives of millions of Americans.

When Donald Trump says that this is an issue to be determined by the states, this is what we can expect until there is a national abortion ban – and this is why House Democrats will not stop fighting until Roe v. Wade is the law of the land again.

My office has worked on more than 14,600 constituent cases and delivered over $33.5 million in benefits to individuals and families throughout #VenturaCounty and the Conejo Valley who needed assistance with a federal agency - including Zaid from Camarillo.

After reaching out to the Federal... Aviation Administration and being unable to acquire the certification necessary for training, Zaid contacted my office for assistance in order to reinstate his pilot’s license. Soon after we filed an inquiry with the FAA, Zaid obtained the certificate and was one step closer to returning to his passion for aviation and a career in flying. ✈️

Constituent services continue to be my top priority! If you or someone you know needs assistance with a federal agency, please do not hesitate to call my office at (805) 379-1779. I am here to help!

On this #TransDayofVisibility, I am proud to join the Congressional Equality Caucus to celebrate the trans community, as well as protect, support, and uplift trans voices.

As anti-equality extremists attack the lives of trans people, I am committed to ensuring all people can live ...authentically and without fear.

Happy Easter to all who celebrate across #VenturaCounty and the Conejo Valley! May this special time of hope, rebirth, and renewal bring peace and joy to you and your loved ones. 🐣🐰
