Thompson, whose district encompasses much of the North Coast's Wine Country, is not only the industry's foremost champion in Washington, helping it secure tax breaks, get money for pet projects like the Napa Valley Wine Train or beat back restrictions on direct ...

REP. MIKE THOMPSON ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF FIRST ANNUAL STUDENT APP CHALLENGE
U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-5) announced today the launch of the first annual Congressional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) academic competition, known as the House App Challenge, for the 5th Congressional District.

That’s why the House App Contest is so important. STEM is
THOMPSON: “IT WOULD BE MORE PRODUCTIVE FOR THIS BODY TO JOIN IN A RAIN DANCE ON THE FLOOR TODAY THAN TO PASS THIS BILL.”
U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-5) today voted against the House Majority’s California water bill, H.R. 3964. The legislation would allow water to be pumped south from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta for as long as water is available, and it would undo the San Joaquin River restoration, an agreement to reconnect the river with the Pacific Ocean and reintroduce salmon flows. Thompson spoke in opposition to H.R. 3964 today on the House floor. Text of his remarks is below and video can be seen here . The legislation passed the House by a vote of 229-191. It is not expected to be considered by the Senate and President Obama’s advisers have said that they would recommend a veto if it reached his desk.   “Thank you Madam Chair. “Mr. Chairman, I rise in strong opposition to this bill – a bill that would destroy jobs, does nothing to address the real problem, the drought, and ignores more than twenty years of established science. “What’s the bill do?

Northern California and Bay Area Representatives George Miller (CA-11), Mike Thompson (CA-5), Doris Matsui (CA-6), John Garamendi (CA-3), Jerry McNerney (CA-9), and Anna Eshoo (CA-18) today issued the following statement after legislation aimed to help West Coast farmers and communities during drought conditions was introduced in the U.S. Senate: “While the plan put forward today is a huge improvement from the disingenuous and deeply flawed legislation pushed through the House of Representatives last week by Rep. Valadao, we can still do much better. Particularly troubling in the new Senate bill are aspects that threaten the Northern California environment, economy, and may override protections for critically endangered species like salmon. We appreciate the Senators’ efforts to address the many problems intensified by the drought in California and the West Coast, and we look forward to working with them to change their legislation in such a way to protect the interests of all Cal

But even 50 years later, there is still a lot of work to be done. “As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. recognized, inequality in America wasn’t limited to racial segregation, it also included economic injustices, which continue today.
