Committees And Caucuses

I am proud to serve on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce in the 118th Congress. I am pleased to be Los Angeles’ voice on the most powerful committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Energy and Commerce Committee is the oldest of the “authorizing committees,” where many pieces of historic legislation have been created and first debated.

This committee is the most important in our House. I am honored to serve and I hope I can focus debates on issues important to the Los Angeles region and our nation. I intend to use the breadth of my experience to be ready on day one to discuss solutions to the challenges faced by our nation.

CAUCUSES - Caucuses are groups formed by Representatives who share something in common, be it geography, policy interests, ethnicity, ideology or even a shared love for a particular food or drink. I have joined the caucuses listed below because I believe it is important for legislators to come together around shared interests, to better understand our colleagues and the diverse communities they serve.

I launched the Connecting the Americas Caucus, along with Rep. Carlos Curbelo during the 116th Congress. The caucus focuses on strengthening relationships and business opportunities between the United States and Central and South American countries. Every day, opportunities within the hemisphere go untapped and millions of dollars are lost simply because companies do not know where to begin if they want to expand into new territories and grow their business. Connecting the Americas Caucus stands to open lines of communication and identify ways to improve the business environment.

I am the co-chair of the Crime Prevention and Youth Development Caucus, along with Rep. David Reichert of Washington. Together, we hope to lead the Caucus to achieve the goal of helping Members of Congress better understand the developmental and justice challenges facing the children of the United States of America, and to create bipartisan solutions to those challenges.

I also co-founded the the bipartisan Congressional Student-Athlete Protection Caucus with Rep. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania. The Caucus was founded to both inform Congressional members about physical, academic and financial issues faced by student-athletes, and to ensure that all student-athletes participating in collegiate athletics are treated fairly and are provided with the educational promise that is at the heart of collegiate athletics.
