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 Ventura, Oxnard, Ojai, Santa Paula, Fillmore, Camarillo, Newbury Park, Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, and Westlake Village. 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.

A year ago today, President Biden took executive action to halt the dangerous #GlobalGagRule. Now, it’s time for Congress to act to permanently repeal this incredibly harmful policy. #EndGlobalGag

One year ago, @POTUS rescinded the Global Gag Rule so that women around the world could access the resources they need to make their own reproductive health care decisions.

All women everywhere deserve access to reproductive care and preventative health services!

Once again, @HouseDemocrats and @POTUS have delivered.

The #BipartisanInfrastructureLaw provides $17 billion for hundreds of projects to #BuildBackBetter ports, harbors, and waterways, while creating jobs, economic opportunity, and strengthening our water infrastructure.

Today, we reflect on one of the darkest chapters in history as we remember the over six million Jewish lives and countless others tragically stolen during the Holocaust. As we honor the lives lost and the survivors, let us recommit to fight antisemitism and all forms of hate.

Today, I had the pleasure of meeting with @SecretaryPete and my Los Angeles colleagues to discuss how the #BipartisanInfrastructureLaw will provide crucial investments in our ports and waterways to keep cargo moving efficiently and strengthen our national supply chain.

The #BipartisanInfrastructureLaw invests $41 billion in highway and pedestrian safety programs. By investing in transportation safety, we protect communities and families from fatal accidents and injuries and improve overall quality of life.

.@HouseDemocrats and President Biden’s #BuildBackBetter economic strategy is creating good-paying jobs, rebuilding our manufacturing, and strengthening our supply chains to help make American companies more competitive.

As part of the #BipartisanInfrastructureLaw, Congress passed a permanent program to help families afford internet service, which is more crucial now than ever.
