Staunch ally Bass rallies support for Obama jobs speech


Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), one of Barack Obama’s key allies, called for democratic supporters to rally behind his crucial jobs speech Thursday. She also pre-empted criticism on the Republican side by noting that even if House Speaker John Boehner wrote the address, he’d oppose it if the president delivered it. Bass made her comments at a press briefing Saturday while hosting the Grand Opening of her District Office, located at 4929 Wilshire Boulevard, which was attended by over 200 invited guests. The former Assembly Speaker actually opened the office in January, following last ...

A conservative federal appeals panel struck down President Barack Obama's health care overhaul Friday. Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) warned on KPCC's Patt Morrison's program that the conservative federal appeals panel that struck down the health care overhaul is "part of the ongoing effort to make sure that health care reform does not get implemented in this country." Bass said while those actions can slow down the process of implementing universal health care, they can't stop them. "So long as we retain the senate and the current president in the White House they [conservatives] will never be ...

Rep. Bass Cosponsors Quiet Skies Amendments to 2017 FAA Reauthorization Bill
“As the FAA Reauthorization package slowly makes its way to the Floor for final vote, I’ve made sure to cosponsor specific amendments that will decrease noise levels in areas impacted by too-frequent flights and low flight paths,” Rep. Bass said. “I oppose the overall privatization of the FAA but should the bill pass, it’s important that these important provisions are included. I’ve received hundreds of calls and letters about the noise over the past 2 years and hope that these amendments will continue the strong push to mitigate this issue.” In April, Rep. Bass convened FAA and LAWA officials at a townhall specifically hosted to address the issue of flight noise. The townhall resulted in the formation of a Quiet Skies Constituent Task Force for the 37th Congressional District, which keeps the Congresswoman in touch with constituents directly affected by the disruptive effects of airplane noise.   Amendment Summary:   Amendment 1 Strengthens the required study o

Rep. Bass Convenes Postal Inspectors, Post Office Manager at Westside Neighborhood Council Meeting
“My district office has been working hard to provide constituents of the 37th district with the most up to date information possible about their mail delivery process,” Rep. Bass said. “Issues of mail service and theft have greatly affected the Westside for too long, which is why I invited representatives of the postal office to speak. I hope that this meeting helped keep constituents informed about this continuing issue.” “Congresswoman Bass provided the resources to address Westside Neighborhood Council stakeholders’ issues with the USPS,” Terri Tippit, Chair of Westside Neighborhood Council, said. The Westside Neighborhood Council meeting is held monthly to discuss pressing local issues. For more information about services provided by the Office of Congressmember Karen Bass, click here. 
Rep. Bass Co-leads Bipartisan Effort on Passage of Imperative Sex Trafficking Legislation
“One of our most urgent priorities should be disrupting the child welfare to trafficking pipeline and finding better and more effective ways to meet the critical needs of this vulnerable population,” Rep. Bass, Co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Foster Youth, said. “That’s why I’ve added a provision to this important piece of legislation that focuses on the special housing needs of young girls in the foster care system. One of the major reasons girls cannot escape the cycle of sex trafficking is because they do not have housing to escape to. At every level of government, we have an urgent responsibility to shut down pathways for child sex trafficking and to invest in critical housing needs for vulnerable girls and foster youth. This responsibility includes supporting and adopting this piece of legislation.”  The package passed unanimously by voice vote with no voiced opposition on the House floor.
