ENG: The California State Assembly is the lower house of the California State Legislature. There are 80 members in the Assembly, representing an approximately equal number of constituents, with each district having a population of at least 420,000. Due to the state's large population and relatively small legislature, the Assembly has the largest population per representative ratio of any state legislature lower house and second largest of any legislative lower house in the United States; only the federal U.S. House of Representatives has a larger ratio. Since a ballot initiative in 1990, members of the Assembly are restricted by term limits, confining them to three two-year terms (six years). The Assembly convenes at the California State Capitol in Sacramento. Leadership of the ...

Maxine Waters, a former Black Caucus chair. In a series of interviews with TIME, she explains the potential ways to create jobs in cities, the President’s relationship with blacks, and what’s at stake as Congress prepares to consider more cuts in ...


We Need To Spend A Trillion Or More On A Jobs Program


On Meet the Press today, Congresswoman Maxine Waters called for President Obama to take a more forceful approach to a jobs program, and likely made Republicans drop their jaws with the amount of money she argued the United States should invest in such a plan. David Gregory asked Waters if it would be possible for the president to take on an ambitious role in working on job creation in Congress, given the recent partisan fights over the debt ceiling. Waters put the impetus on Obama to take the first step. ... by Josh Feldman Source: mediaite.com

Congresswoman Waters Condemns al-Shabab Attack at Kenyan University
Congresswoman Waters Condemns al-Shabab Attack at Kenyan University Washington, DC- Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) issued the following statement in response to the mass shooting perpetrated by al-Shabab militants at Garissa University College in northeastern Kenya: “I stand with the Obama Administration and the people of Kenya in condemning the horrific terrorist attack and massacre of students at Garissa University College.  Al-Shabab’s raid and merciless slaughter of students was not just an attack on the university, but an attack on Kenya’s very future.  While media reports have totaled the deaths at 148, the actual toll and devastation in that community may never be quantified.  In an instant, parents lost their children, and dozens of young people were robbed of their bright futures and the contributions they would have made to Kenya and the world. I applaud the Obama Administration and the Kenyan government’s commitment to cutting this evil at

Congresswoman Waters Commemorates Minority Health Month
  Congresswoman Waters Commemorates Minority Health Month   April 1, 2015   Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Ranking Member of the Financial Services Committee, issued the following statement in recognition of Minority Health Month: “This April, as we commemorate Minority Health Month, we have an opportunity to raise awareness of the health disparities that exist for racial and ethnic minorities. While we face numerous issues, none is more important than the health of the people we serve. Studies continue to show that race and ethnicity correlate with persistent, and often increasing, health disparities in the United States. Historically, this has been caused by a lack of access to health care, health insurance and health providers. Laws like the Affordable Care Act have opened up avenues of access for millions of Americans while simultaneously working to close the gap. Nevertheless, race and other social factors including one’s educa
