Tele Town Hall
We had a great live Tele Town Hall last Wednesday with folks in the Santa Clarita Valley. Topics of discussion ranged from water to military spending and everything in between. Two weeks ago we did one in Simi Valley. If you missed these, don't worry- there will be plenty more in the coming weeks. A big thanks for everyone who listened in and participated!

A Penny for Your Thoughts
I want to hear from you! Please take a moment to take this quick survey and make your voice heard.

The Aeronautics Innovation Act
Last Tuesday I introduced H.R. 5466, the Aeronautics Innovation Act, which lays out a bold vision to revitalize America’s commitment to the study, design, and manufacturing of advanced aircraft. Our aeronautics programs sustain our military dominance and fuel the next great leaps in the civil air transportation system on which all Americans rely. I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress, with the relevant agencies, and with our partners in the private sector to make this vision a reality. Read more here.

The Best Defense… 
On June 16th I was proud to vote in support of H.R. 5293, the Department of Defense appropriations bill for FY 2017.This legislation supports our men and women in the military by giving them a much-deserved pay raise and the tools they need to protect our country and our way of life. Not only does it fully fund programs that will defend our nation in the 21st century like the B-21 and the Triton, which are both manufactured by our neighbors right here in our community, it also provides our military with the resources they need to continue the fight against terrorists organizations.
