Sticking Up for Small Business
Last week a federal judge issued a ruling that blocks the Department of Labor’s controversial overtime rule. My colleagues on the House Small Business Committee and I spent much of this year pushing back on the mandate, which would pose a serious threat to small businesses and their employees, and I applaud the court's ruling. To learn more about the rule and the effects it would have on our local workforce, check out this article in the Simi Valley Acorn from earlier this year.

Trinity Classical Academy Visit
Today I paid a visit to Trinity Classical Academy in Santa Clarita, where I spoke with Mrs. Caddow’s Honors Government class about the legislative process and current events. Thank you for hosting me and for the insightful discussion!
