Smart, Strong, & Strategic
A Dangerous Situation
In light of the targeting of an unmanned U.S. drone by Iran, it is essential that we remain fully engaged with our allies, recognize that we are not dealing with a responsible adversary and do everything in our power to de-escalate.
This is a dangerous, high-tension situation that requires a strong, smart and strategic, not reckless, approach.

Revitalizing an Aging System
This week, the Department of Transportation announced the advancement of the BART’s $2.77 billion Core Capacity initiative into Engineering and accelerated $300 million in federal funding. The Department of Transportation’s announcement is an great step forward for the Bay Area and all those who rely on BART every day. This critical, multi-billion-dollar initiative will create good-paying jobs and finally ensure the Bay Area receives the critical infrastructure investment it needs to continue to thrive. We are pleased that Secretary Chao has specified that the initiative is on track to receive a Full Funding Grant Agreement this year.
The BART Core Capacity initiative will bring transformative change to Bay Area families and communities, decreasing commute times, increasing safety and increasing capacity. California’s Democratic Members in both the House and Senate are to be saluted for their committed advocacy and success in advancing these essential investments.
House Democrats are proud to fight for big, bold infrastructure investments in communities across the country. We are pleased to see this important progress in the Bay Area and will continue our work to forge the infrastructure of the future to create good-paying jobs, promote commerce, protect public health and public safety and improve quality of life for hard-working American families.
