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 ...

The result was Martin Luther King Hospital, later known as Martin Luther King/Drew Medical Center. Her son says Mobley also was instrumental in the opening of the Charles Drew ...


Bass talks health care reform in wake of strike down ...


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 Comments on Lifting of U.S. Sanctions on Sudan
WASHINGTON--Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement after today's announcment by President Trump signed an Executive Order to permanently lift sanctions on Sudan. This action builds on President Obama’s Executive Order 13671, which partially lifted executive-branch sanctions on Sudan and established criteria for the complete revocation of sanctions after a review period of six months. In July, President Trump extended the deadline on whether to lift sanctions.  "During the past year, there has been notable progress in areas outlined by the Five Track Engagement Plan (5TEP), including: Opening humanitarian access throughout the country; maintaining a cessation of hostilities in Darfur and the Two Areas (Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile State); ceasing support to South Sudanese rebel movements and cooperating on threats to regional security.  While some are concerned that lifting sanctions on Sudan will cause it to lose interest in continued progress or alternative
Rep. Bass Signs Petition to Bring DREAM Act to the House Floor
“Tonight, I'm signing a petition for an immediate vote on the bipartisan DREAM Act,” Rep. Bass said. “Especially in Los Angeles, DREAMers are students, teachers, coaches, mentors, entrepreneurs and community leaders from Jamaica, El Salvador, China and Sudan. They are from everywhere but the only place they aren't American is on paper. I urge all Members to join me so that we can protect the more than 800,000 DREAMers from bigotry, fear, and hatred.” H.R. 3440, the DREAM Act, is bipartisan, bicameral legislation which would permanently protect DREAMers from deportation. It was originally introduced by Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.) and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Florida) on July 26.  Rep. Bass is a cosponsor of the bill.
Rep. Bass, House Members Demand Trump Provide Better Response in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Affected Caribbean Islands
“The Jones Act has finally been waved but there’s still much to be done. The decimation being faced by millions of Americans in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the chain of Caribbean islands is devastating to say the least,” Rep. Bass said. “Today, I’m proud to join the continuing efforts to ensure that appropriate, lifesaving aid is being efficiently delivered to those hardest hit by the recent string of hurricanes in the Caribbean. No power for six months means a lack of necessary medical support for seniors, extreme heat in over-crowded airports, and inhibited rescue efforts. This is a matter of life or death. “In addition to fighting for relief, I hope this fight acts against stigmas that the men, women, and children living on these islands are no less American than me. There are millions of Americans on these islands and they deserve the full, unquestioning and unwavering support and efforts of the United States government. Anything less is criminal.”  Yo
Rep. Bass Quiet Skies Amendments Blocked By Closed Rule On FAA Reauthorization Bill
“There are neighborhoods in Los Angeles that suffer hour after hour due to rampant and never-ceasing pollution and noise left by airplanes flying with no regard for previously agreed upon height regulation,” Rep. Bass said. “I’m disappointed by the decision to close the FAA Reauthorization bill to amendments but will continue to look for ways to relieve neighborhoods that have been overburdened with noise. I look forward to my upcoming community discussion at the beginning of October with affected community members and local elected officials, where we plan to organize a collaborative path forward and continue to make progress on this issue.” You can read a summary of the newly-drafted amendments from Rep. Bass that were blocked from submission below:  Creating a research and development grant program that encourages small businesses and startups to advance noise and emission reducing technology to retrofit conventional aircrafts.
