Landlines are a vital resource for many in our district, from contacting emergency services to receiving emergency information about a disaster when their cell service is unreliable.

I’m calling on California Public Utilities Commission President Alice Reynolds to protect access to landlines and ensure that AT&T’s misguided effort to end landline services in California is stopped. Read more ⬇

ICYMI: Yolanda Cruz of Redwood Empire Vineyard Management was the first woman to be named Vineyard Employee of the Year by Sonoma County Winegrowers.

Yolanda exemplifies what it takes to be successful in the wine community and serves as an inspiration for future woman leaders throughout our region. I was proud to help recognize Yolanda with a Congressional Certificate in honor of her achievement.

“She’s paved the way for other women by showing initiative, innovation and leadership, which has drawn more women into the vineyard,” said Karissa Kruse, president of Sonoma County Winegrowers.

ICYMI: I introduced a bill with to make it easier for Americans to order flowers for the gravesites of fallen servicemembers buried around the world.

Those who made the ultimate sacrifice deserve our gratitude and recognition, and this bill ensures that even those fallen heroes buried abroad can be properly honored.

Happy Presidents’ Day

This semester’s interns have been fantastic, and I know that each of them will continue to impress throughout their careers. Thank you to John, Brendan, Frances, Mateo and Amanda for their work.

Solano County has a proud and storied tradition of agriculture and balanced growth. I am committed to working with Solano County residents to ensure that their voices are heard as plans to fundamentally change the makeup of the county proceed to concern our communities.

This week, I was glad to meet with the UC Davis Students Demand Action chapter to discuss the importance of gun violence prevention, how they can use their voices to enact change, and the significance of youth leadership.

Thank you to all of the students for their commitment to help keep our communities safe and move us towards a future free from gun violence.

A busy week in Washington. Here’s the highlights:

📊 Ways and Means Committee hearing with IRS Commissioner

Congress was set to consider the toughest and fairest border security bill in decades, but then Congressional Republicans killed the agreement once the former president said he wants immigration to be a political issue.

The GOP doesn’t want a solution to this problem.

Biden says one person is to blame for the seeming collapse of a bipartisan package to change immigration policy and provide aid to Ukraine and Israel: Donald Trump.

The funding for the IRS in the Inflation Reduction Act is helping the IRS go after rich tax cheats and improve taxpayer services for hard-working Americans.

My colleagues on the other side of the aisle continue to try to slash IRS funding. All that would do is increase our debt and favor rich tax cheats. That’s just wrong. Watch my remarks in today’s Ways and Means Committee hearing with IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel ⬇

Great to meet with the new GIFFORDS Executive Director Emma Brown to discuss how to best continue to work to reduce gun violence, keep our communities safe, and carry on the important work of my friend Gabby Giffords.

On the 6th anniversary of Parkland, yet another community is going through a uniquely American traumatic event.

One is dead and at least 14 are injured after a mass shooting in Kansas City at the Chiefs Super Bowl Celebration. My prayers are with the friends and loved ones of all those impacted.

02/14/2024

Our servicemembers who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country earned the gratitude and recognition of all Americans, regardless of where the servicemembers are buried. The Flowers for Fallen Heroes Act will make it easier for Americans to order flowers for the graves of our fallen servicemembers buried in Europe.

Proud to work on this important bipartisan bill with my Republican colleague Representative Ryan Zinke.

Happy Valentine’s Day to my Valentine.

Six years ago, 17 innocent people were murdered in cold blood at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. 17 others were injured, and the entire community was left scarred from a traumatic event that is too common in our country.

The anniversary of this shooting is a grave reminder of the trauma that remains for the families of those lost. The families of the students never got to see their child graduate from high school, go to college, start a family, and live a full and healthy life. Today, we remember those lost and honor their memories.

Visited the Clarksburg Schoolhouse to see how construction is progressing and hear about the project. This building, constructed in 1883, is an important part of the rich history of our region. I look forward to seeing the project finished soon.

The Senate-passed National Security Act would strengthen our national security, improve the national security of our allies, and provide essential humanitarian aid to Gaza.

We must not play political games with our national security, and Speaker Johnson should quickly bring this bill to the floor where there would be a strong bipartisan vote in favor of this national security package.

Education lays the foundation for a successful life, and our educators play important roles in ensuring our students receive quality and accessible education.

I met today with Yolo County Superintendent of Schools Garth Lewis to discuss his work to support Yolo County students, his goals for 2024, and how we can best work together to ensure that every student can succeed and grow.

24 years ago today, our country and our world lost Charles “Sparky” Schulz, the creator of Peanuts.

Sparky inspired generations of Americans with his witty comic strips and created a universe that has brought and continues to bring joy and laughter to all Americans.

Each year, the Sonoma County Winegrowers recognize an employee from our community who has gone above and beyond to support agriculture and serve as an exemplary leader.

Yolandra is the first woman to win this award and represents the best of vineyard workers. Congratulations to Yolanda and to runner-up Juan Avila from Emeritus Vineyard.
