Jul 24, 2015 Pelosi Update
This week, I joined a group of bipartisan, bicameral Members of Congress tointroduce the Equality Act, an historic, comprehensive LGBT non-discrimination bill that ensures all Americans have the same basic protections under the law. We have come so far since we began the fight to ensure equal rights for LGBT Americans.

On Tuesday, an historic nuclear agreement was reached between Iran and the P5+1 Nations – United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China, and Germany – providing the best, long-term solution for preventing Iran from building a nuclear weapon.
Jul 11, 2015 Pelosi Update
This week, as we celebrated the 147th anniversary of the ratification of the 14th Amendment, granting equal protection for all, South Carolina voted to remove the Confederate Battle Flag from their Statehouse grounds. Yet at the same time, House Republicans moved to allow a vote to undo successful Democratic amendments that would have barred the display of Confederate flags in federal cemeteries and barred the National Park Service from doing business with gift shops that sell Confederate flag merchandise as part of the Interior Appropriations bill. After the terrible tragedy in Charleston, after decades of this flag serving as a banner of oppression, hate, and segregation, it is long overdue to take down the Confederate Battle Flag.
Jul 2, 2015 Pelosi Update
This weekend, as our nation celebrates the Fourth of July, let all of us remember the treasured words of the declaration that heralded our independence -- the unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. As we approach Independence Day, we continue to celebrate two landmark Supreme Court decisions from last week that honor the highest ideals of our Founders.
Jun 26, 2015 Pelosi Update
This week, for the second time, the Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act. The Court’s ruling in King v. Burwell ensures that all eligible Americans, regardless of their home states, have access to premium tax credits to afford life-saving health care.

This week, House Republicans once again chose to Fast Track the trade agreement and passed Trade Promotion Authority in a vote of 218-208.

Jun 12, 2015 Pelosi Update

As we seek to secure our nation’s place as a leader in today’s global economy, we must not leave the American worker or American values behind. For these and other reasons, I voted today to slow down the trade Fast Track, to get a better deal for the American people – bigger paychecks, better infrastructure – and to help all who seek to fulfill the American Dream. 

Jun 8, 2015 Pelosi Update
LGBT Americans have long been on the frontlines in the fight for equality for all Americans. In commemorating LGBT Pride Month throughout June, we honor courageous citizens who combat injustice and recommit our efforts to creating a stronger, more inclusive democracy. We recognize our shared progress to ensure equality for LGBT Americans – in Congress to the Supreme Court, from state legislatures to local courthouses – by remaining vigilant in confronting bigotry and remaining hopeful for a better future for all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Honoring Our Heritage
This week, I was honored to join with the Asian-American Pacific Islander community at the YWCA of San Francisco and Marin in Chinatown to participate in a roundtable discussion on my bipartisan congressional delegation trip to Asia and offer an update on current legislation impacting the AAPI community. 

May 22, 2015 Pelosi Update
House Republicans are threatening to devastate our nation’s commitment to science and innovation with their ill-conceived COMPETES Act, which is an assault on science and a plan to surrender American leadership. Instead of investing in research and development, this bill slashes funding for essential initiatives in the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and Department of Energy research. It attempts to silence the climate, environmental and social science that conservatives in Congress don’t want to hear.
May 18, 2015 Pelosi Update
With this year’s celebrations of the 80th anniversary of Social Security and the 50th anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid, House Democrats are proud to announce the inclusion of retirement security as a pillar to our economic agenda, When Women Succeed, America Succeeds.
May 8, 2015 Pelosi Update
On Tuesday, we were reminded of the rich and diverse immigrant heritage that is the heart of our country. Immigration is the constant reinvigoration of America, and each generation of immigrants makes America more American. Every May 5th has served as an opportunity to honor the proud history of our Mexican neighbors, and to celebrate the generations of contributions that Mexican Americans and all Hispanic Americans have made to the United States and specifically to San Francisco.
May 2, 2015 Pelosi Update
This week, I was proud to join with Department of Labor Secretary Thomas Perez and Democratic Members to unveil the Raise the Wage Act by Senator Patty Murray and Congressman Bobby Scott. The legislation would raise the federal minimum wage to $12 by 2020 and tie future minimum wage increases to increases in the median wage in order to account for inflation.
Apr 25, 2015 Pelosi Update
Earth Day reminds us of the vital role we must play in protecting the world’s wildlife, public lands, air and water for the next generation. For the past forty-five years, April 22 has served as a clarion call to fulfill our shared responsibility of shaping a healthier future. ‘It’s Our Turn to Lead’ is more than the theme of this year’s events, it is a challenge to confront the climate crisis, practice conservation and cultivate the promise of clean energy. By protecting our environment and pursuing cleaner technologies, we can meet the challenges we face.
Apr 17, 2015 Pelosi Update
It is simply wrong that 52 years after President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act into law, there is still a pay gap between women and men in America. Tuesday was Equal Pay Day, which symbolizes when, more than three months into the year, women’s wages finally catch up to what men were paid in the previous year.

Groundbreaking Growth
It was a pleasure to attend the groundbreaking of the Alice Griffith Housing Development this Wednesday. In this wonderful new part of the Candlestick Point and Hunters Point Shipyard area, we are taking steps to meet one of the most pressing challenges we face: affordable housing. 

Apr 1, 2015 Pelosi Update
On Thursday, we celebrated the 88th birthday of the late farm labor movement leader, César Chávez, whose extraordinary leadership and commitment to justice continue to inspire civil rights movements in our country and around the world. Chávez galvanized the farmworkers’ movement to guarantee that workers who grew and picked the food that helped feed our nation could also provide for their own families.
Mar 27, 2015 Pelosi Update
Since its creation nearly 50 years ago, Medicare has represented a promise to the American people: that after a lifetime of work, seniors deserve the access to quality health care. This week, I was honored to join my colleagues inpassing historic bipartisan legislation by a vote of 392-37 to protect millions of seniors from losing access to their Medicare physicians.

Work Harder for Less?
Our budgets are nothing less than a statement of our values. The Republican Budget released this week makes their values clear: big tax breaks for the ultra-wealthy and no concern for the challenges faced by hardworking Americans.
