On Independence Day, a Pledge to Leave No Veteran Behind

On Monday, we celebrate our country’s 235rd birthday, and the freedoms and values upon which it was built.And, while the Fourth of July is a great time for family and parades, picnics and flag ceremonies, it’s also a time to take stock of our American values. For example, Monday is an opportunity for Americans to come together and remember those in uniform who sacrifice daily on behalf of our country in the name of freedom and democracy. The debt we owe them is immeasurable. Their sacrifices and those of their families are freedom’s foundation.Without the brave efforts of ...

Lois Capps-windmills with green dreams

Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, recently sent an email referencing an article she authored in Politico, an online political magazine, titled “Regional Strategy Key to Clean Energy.” In it she waxed philosophic about how new green energy opportunities were key to our future, and how California and the Central Coast were uniquely positioned to take advantage of these opportunities and use them to grow our economy to a new, clean green nirvana. Tom Watson If only. Perhaps our Congresswoman should spend a little more time trying to keep what clean companies we do have in California, ...

Capps Introduces Bill to Ensure Safe Drinking Water
(WASHINGTON) Today, Rep. Lois Capps (CA-24) introduced the Climate Resiliency, Security, and Source Water Protection Act (H.R. 6121), which would amend the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) to help community water systems be better prepared to protect drinking water and source water from the effects of climate change as well as from security threats from accidental or intentional contamination. H.R. 6121 includes and expands upon drinking water provisions authored by Capps in her Water Infrastructure Resiliency and Sustainability Act (WIRSA, H.R. 1278), which would create a competitive grant program to help drinking water system operators prepare for the impacts of climate-related risks to water supplies. H.R. 6121 builds upon this effort and also addresses possible risks to drinking water and source waters from homeland security threats, including terrorism, and contamination from industrial and agricultural activity. “As we continue to learn and better understand how climate change i
Capps Announces More Than $100,000 in Federal Grants to Help Latino Youth
(WASHINGTON) Today, Rep. Lois Capps (CA-24) announced that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded Proyecto HEROES in Santa Barbara $108,170 in funding for their work to address health disparities related to trauma exposure and violence prevention among Latino youth. Specifically, the grant will be used to launch a low-cost, culturally attentive, parent-youth engagement prevention program, which will be facilitated by youth mentors and ‘promotores’ who are also community health workers. Proyecto HEROES, led by Dr. Maryam Kia-Keating at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Dr. Jessica Adams at Child Abuse Listening Mediation (CALM), began in 2013. Since then, federal funds from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), part of NIH, have supported their efforts to bring together key stakeholders from Santa Barbara County in a collaborative effort to address health disparities using a trauma-informed, restorative approach.

Senate Passes Capps Bill to Honor Central Coast Navy SEAL
WASHINGTON – Yesterday, legislation authored by Rep. Lois Capps (CA-24) to rename the U.S. Postal Service office located at 1221 State Street, Suite 12, Santa Barbara, Calif. as the “Special Warfare Operator Master Chief Petty Officer (SEAL) Louis ‘Lou’ J. Langlais Post Office Building,” passed the Senate. Capps spoke in support of the bill prior to it passing the House of Representatives earlier this year on May 23. Video of her floor speech can be found here. Master Chief Langlais was a Santa Barbara High School graduate who grew up on the Central Coast. A Navy Seal who rose to the level of Troop Leader for the elite SEAL Team Six, Master Chief Langlais earned many honors and distinctions over this distinguished 25 year career in the military, including five bronze stars with valor and the Purple Heart. He was killed in action on August 6, 2011, when his helicopter was shot down in Wardak Province, Eastern Afghanistan. Thirty service members died in that crash on one of the
House Passes Two Capps Bills
(WASHINGTON) Today, Rep. Lois Capps (CA-24) celebrated the U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of two bills she co-authored, the Title VIII Nursing Workforce Reauthorization Act (H.R. 2713) and the Improving Access to Maternity Care Act (H.R. 1209). Both bills passed unanimously and now go to the Senate for consideration. “I am so pleased to see these important pieces of health care legislation pass the House today,” Capps said. “As a nurse for more than 30 years, I am keenly aware of the important roles nurses play in the health care delivery system and how critical it is that women have access to maternity care when they need it. And yet, far too many people lack access to care simply due to a shortage of health care providers. These bills harness the power of proven programs to help tackle these access issues and get nurses and maternity care providers to the areas that need them most. I thank my colleagues across the aisle, Reps. Burgess and Joyce, for sharing my dedicat
