Putting the Super in Supervisor
Last week I had the honor of meeting with my mentor, the legendary Los Angeles Country Supervisor Michael Antonovich. We talked about how we can work together on local issues such as CEMEX and Bouquet Canyon.

First Knight Bill Passed
I’m proud to announce that my first bill, the Small Business Joint Venturing Act, is headed to the House Floor for a vote very soon. On Wednesday the House Armed Services Committee amended the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2016 to include my amendment, which would give small businesses a better chance to compete for federal contracts by allowing them to form joint ventures and work together while maintaining their small business status.

On Tuesday, I sent a letter to Department of Interior Deputy Secretary Michael Conner urging him to take action in the immediate future to prevent a large mining project in Soledad Canyon. Preventing Cemex from mining in Soledad Canyon is a long-standing and complicated issue, and I Resolving it won’t happen overnight;however, time is running out and we must act now to ensure a solution.
