I am committed to working across party lines to bring quality jobs to the Central Coast by investing in infrastructure, encouraging clean energy development, and embracing new technology.

Over the past few years, my colleagues and I in Congress have passed landmark legislation that will bring millions of new jobs to California through incentives and investments to grow our economy and raise our quality of life.

Our Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will create new jobs by revitalizing our roads and highways, improving our transit centers (including upgrades to our buses, trains, and airports), and ensuring every Californian has access to clean water and high speed internet.

In August 2022 we also passed the Inflation Reduction Act, which includes tax incentives that will promote the expansion of clean energy production on the Central Coast and across California - promoting our energy independence while accelerating our fight against climate change.

In addition, I believe that the best way to support our businesses and workers is to ensure there is pay equity as well as an increase in wages to meet the standards of living for all Americans.  I have been a staunch supporter of raising the minimum wage and ensuring paycheck fairness. 

Over fifty years after the Equal Pay Act was signed into law the wage gap persists, harming not only women but also the families they support. I have cosponsored the Paycheck Fairness Act, legislation that would strengthen the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and guarantee that women can challenge pay discrimination and hold employers accountable. 

I will continue fighting to create more economic opportunities, as well as support our workforce throughout the Central Coast. I am committed to making sure that every opportunity is rewarded to those who are willing to put in the hard work.
