Great editorials supporting Jared’s water legislation!
​6/30/15—Friends: over the past two weeks I’ve been working hard to provide a serious congressional response to the critical drought California and other western states are experiencing. While the drought has worsened these past three years, Congress has done nothing because my Republican colleagues have refused to consider common sense, bipartisan water solutions; instead, they continue to scapegoat endangered fish species in hopes of rolling back the Endangered Species Act. I’m gratified that three major newspapers have now editorialized in support of my proposed legislation and wanted to share these editorials with you. San Francisco Chronicle EDITORIAL (6/22/15): At... Read More



Did you hear the great news?
​June 26, 2015—The Supreme Court just made a historic ruling in favor of marriage equality! California has been a leader in legalizing same-sex marriage. From 2007 through 2012 – each year I served in the State Assembly – I co-authored marriage equality bills, and each of the three years I’ve been in Congress I’ve co-sponsored bills to advance this important cause. Now, thanks to this landmark ruling, Americans across the country can enjoy the right to marry the person they love – regardless of their gender. But our work isn’t finished. Full legal protection for LGBT Americans is long overdue, which is why... Read More



Real solutions
​June 23, 2015—It is now abundantly clear that the California drought – now in its fourth year and the worst in our state’s history – requires a thoughtful, forward-looking congressional response. With reservoirs depleted, groundwater basins overdrawn and record low flows in our rivers, now is not the time for politics as usual. Governor Brown, the state legislature, and President Obama have all stepped up in creative ways to get us through this terrible drought, but Congress has done nothing. Instead of coming together across party lines to help California and other drought impacted states—as Congress usually does with natural disasters... Read More



One more thing…
​April 29, 2015—Thank you to everyone who signed my petition demanding stronger environmental protections in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and opposing “fast track.” Your response was incredible and together we sent a strong message. But our work on this issue is far from done. That’s why I’m asking for you to take the next step. Can you contribute before tomorrow’s fundraising deadline?

The “Fast Track” Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation will soon be considered by the full House. It passed the Ways and Means... Read More



Something’s missing!
April 16, 2015—You may have heard about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a proposed trade agreement that many are concerned would imperil American jobs. But there’s another problem with TPP. Something important is missing: protection for our environment. Whether it’s protection against global threats to our climate, forests, wildlife, oceans or air quality, or enforcement of existing standards, the TPP falls short. That’s because the agreement asks very little of some of the world’s worst environmental actors, lacks meaningful enforcement, and will speed up natural gas exports, leading to more polluting fracking operations here at home. I need your... Read More



Thank you!
​Nov. 5, 2014—Last night the voters of the 2nd District overwhelmingly re-elected me to the House of Representatives! This was a team victory and I’m so grateful to friends and supporters like you who made it possible. I’m also humbled by the strength of our showing. We are on track to finish with over 74% of the vote and in every part of the district we won with the highest margin of any legislative or statewide candidate on the ballot. We even won in the GOP strongholds of Trinity and Del Norte Counties, something no Democrat has done in many... Read More
