Congratulations to Efrain Munoz from The Palmdale Aerospace Academy on winning this year’s Congressional App Challenge!

Keep up the great work Efrain!

I was honored to serve as Honorary Co-Chair at the For the Troops Gala in Simi Valley on Saturday night. For the Troops is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to providing members of the American military with “We Care” packages containing basic necessities, goodies, games and—most of all—a show of support.

Calling All Artists

I’m excited to announce that I am now accepting artwork submissions for the Congressional Art Competition of 2016. High School students can submit an original work of art for a chance to be selected as the 25th Congressional District’s winner. The first place winner will be provided with complimentary airfare to Washington, D.C. to see his or her art displayed in the Capitol Building—which will be displayed for an entire year. Artwork must be submitted by Friday, April 24th to one of my District Offices in Antelope Valley, Simi Valley, or to the KHTS Radio Station in Santa Clarita. A winner will be announced by May 4th, and will be selected by a panel of judges consisting of members of the art community throughout the district.

For more information on guidelines and rules, please visit my website or call Nicole in my Santa Clarita Valley Office at (661) 255-5630.


Around the Capitol
Last Man on the Moon

Last week I spoke at a reception for NASA Space Launch System & Orion Suppliers featuring Gene Cernan, the last man on the moon. America needs heroes like Cernan who can inspire future generations to push the boundaries of our space exploration program and continue our nation’s leadership in aeronautics and innovation.

Carrying Water to Santa Clarita

Even with the rain from El Nino, the drought in our state is a national emergency and Congressional action is needed to increase our drinking water supply. That is why on February 24th I introduced legislation that would authorize the Bureau of Reclamation to fund new water supply programs associated with communities impacted by perchlorate contamination plumes, like the Santa Clarita Valley, in order to restore lost local groundwater supply and decrease dependence on imported water supplies. More information here.

California Institute for Aerospace

I am proud to stand behind Assemblyman Tom Lackey, Assemblyman Scott Wilk, Senator Sharon Runner, and Senator Jean Fuller in their effort to create a California Institute for Aerospace in the Antelope Valley. We need innovative programs like this in order to bring quality jobs to our community and revitalize California’s economy.

Speaking Up For Porter Ranch

Last Thursday I testified in a House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Railways, Pipelines and Hazardous Materials hearing on behalf of residents in Porter Ranch and Santa Clarita. I explained the negative effects of the Aliso Canyon gas leak on the residents of Porter Ranch and urged my colleagues to pass legislation that would create adequate safety standards for gas storage facilities so that we can prevent another incident from happening in our communities ever again. Watch here.

The Future of the Army

Last week I spoke with General Milley, Chief of Staff of the Army, about the future of the Army and what Congress can do to support its mission.
