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 Wants Blacks Back In The Conversation


While Barack Obama toured rural parts of the Midwest this week, the Congressional Black Caucus drew thousands of people to job fairs in Detroit and Atlanta. Driving the turnout was a sobering fact: The unemployment rate among blacks hovers around 16% Among the most prominent voices in this week’s discussion has been California Rep. 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


Maxine Waters On Jobs, Unemployment


Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) had some harsh words for the Tea Party at a forum in Inglewood, California Saturday. With California's jobless rate now 12 percent, the second-highest rate of unemployment in the nation after Nevada, talk about jobs, the economy and the partisan squabbling in Congress dominated the “Kitchen Table Summit.” ...

Waters Announces $738,000 for Housing Authority of LA County
Waters Announces $738,000 for Housing Authority of LA County  Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Ranking Member of the Committee on Financial Services, announced that the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles (HACoLA) will receive a $738,000 federal grant to continue employing its “Resident Service Coordinators” who are integral in connecting public housing residents with much-needed supportive services and resident empowerment activities in the community. Even more important, these coordinators link the County’s seniors to resources and services that will enable them to live independently and age-in-place.  “This program is critically important in helping to link residents with the types of services they need to improve their lives, including education and job training, computer and financial literacy services, and supportive services to help the elderly and disabled live independently and with dignity,” said Con
Waters Applauds President Obama’s Veto of Keystone XL Pipeline Act
Waters Applauds President Obama’s Veto of Keystone XL Pipeline Act WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Ranking Member of House Financial Services Committee, released the following statement today, applauding President Obama’s veto of the Keystone XL Pipeline Act: “I am pleased that the President swiftly vetoed legislation that would have authorized the building of the Keystone XL pipeline. The legislation would have bypassed the State Department’s exclusive longstanding authority to determine whether cross-border pipelines such as Keystone serve the national interest. The bill would also have effectively exempted the Keystone pipeline from all federal permitting requirements, creating a special exemption unavailable to other construction projects. Those that supported Keystone argued that the pipeline is necessary because it would create jobs. I would remind them that rather than relying on job creation with projects like the Keystone pipeline that would be de
Waters Commends FCC’s Decision to Reclassify Broadband
  Waters Commends FCC’s Decision to Reclassify Broadband WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following a decision by the Federal Communications Commission to reclassify broadband under Title II of the Telecommunications Act, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Ranking Member of House Financial Services Committee, commended the FCC and Chairman Tom Wheeler for ensuring the Internet remains open and free. Congresswoman Waters has long advocated for strong net neutrality rules. In 2010, Congresswoman Waters wrote then FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, applauding the FCC’s decision to draft Open Internet rules but later voiced concern that FCC’s initial net neutrality rules didn’t go far enough to afford protections to populations that disproportionally access the internet on mobile devices. When Comcast Corporation sought to merge with NBC Universal, in numerous procedural filings with the FCC and letters to the Department of Justice (DOJ), she urged  both agencies to condition the merger
Waters Awarded by South County Labor
  Waters Awarded by South County Labor WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Ranking Member of House Financial Services Committee, was honored last month by California’s South County Labor organization.  The group’s leadership recognized Congresswoman Waters as a “True Labor Shero” for her steadfast support of working families throughout her public service career. In her prepared acceptance remarks, Congresswoman Waters noted the precipitous rise in economic inequality throughout America and encouraged the labor movement to continue its efforts to reduce inequality and protect the financial security of working class Americans. “The time is now to renew the fight they started,” said Congresswoman Waters, referring to legendary labor organizers. “I don’t have to recite the data to you because many of you have lived it. You feel what is happening to the average working person in America. The attacks on labor unions over the last half a century have
