No Hero Left Untreated
Very proud to announce that on June 28th I introduced the No Hero Left Untreated Act, which would help veterans recover from post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, military sexual trauma, chronic pain, and opiate addiction. Our veterans risked everything to protect our country and our values, and we owe them a tremendous debt. Now we have an opportunity to support and expand on promising technology that could bring relief to our heroes, and I am proud to be part of the effort to move forward with providing the best treatment for our veterans. More information here.

Cyber Security 
Last week I participated in a House Armed Services Committee hearing on military cyber operations. In an increasingly complex world with many complex threats, cyberattacks continue to be some of the most difficult to address. We must stay on the cutting edge of technology today so that we are secure tomorrow. Watch live here

Hope for the Future
Thank you to Grace Lim from Academy of the Canyons Middle College High School for stopping by my office last Wednesday to meet with me and discuss possible solutions to the opioid epidemic. Grace is in Washington, DC this week on a scholarship to participate in the prestigious National Congressional Workshop. Keep up the great work!

Preventing Another Porter Ranch Gas Leak
HUGE news! Last week our gas leak prevention legislation was signed into law. The Natural Gas Leak Prevention Act will create adequate safety standards for natural gas storage facilities like Aliso Canyon in Porter Ranch and Honor Rancho in Santa Clarita. I am pleased and proud that this historic effort to increase safety at natural gas storage facilities was signed into law. More info here.
We must ensure incidents like the Porter Ranch gas leak never happen again

Coffee With Vets
I had a great time at Crazy Otto's Diner on Tuesday and Wednesday during the Coffee for Vets breakfasts. I spoke with some great men and women who served our country about how my office can provide assistance with the VA and about the No Hero Left Untreated Act, which you can read about here.

Surprise Ceremony 
At a meet and greet in Santa Clarita on Tuesday, my old friend Charlie Beck, LAPD Police Chief, surprised me with friends and family to present me with my old badge from when I served with the LAPD.
