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.

Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy and engines for jobs and economic growth. Supporting small businesses is critically important for our prosperity, not only in our communities, but across the nation. In Congress, I am a strong supporter of Small Business Administration programs that help small businesses get started and grow. I have also supported legislation to reduce bureaucratic red tape and to make our tax code more fair to all businesses that create jobs here at home.
