I am disappointed that the House was unable to pass a full-year Homeland Security funding bill today. However, with DHS funding set to expire at midnight and the Senate adjourned for the weekend, I am voting tonight for a seven-day continuing resolution to fund DHS and keep America – and Americans – secure. I do so in the hope that next week, we will finish the debate on this issue and finally pass a clean, full-year DHS funding bill.

Homeland Security funding expires at midnight tonight! Unfortunately, House Republican leadership is proposing to kick the can down the road with a three-week funding bill. There is nothing to be gained by further delaying a resolution to this crisis. Instead, we need to pass a clean, full-year DHS bill today so that we can keep paying our brave DHS personnel and make the long-term investments we need to keep America -- and Americans -- safe. #DontShutDownOurSecurity

The League of Conservation Voters has given me a score of 97% on its 2014 National Environmental Scorecard! As your Member of Congress, I am working hard to ensure we all have clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. That is part of the reason why I have led Congressional efforts to revitalize the L.A. River, and urged Vernon's Exide Technologies to stay closed until it can prove beyond any doubt that it will no longer emit harmful pollutants into our communities. It's also why I've supported legislation to combat climate change, stop the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, and reduce air pollution. #LCVscore #ActOnClimate
