Met yesterday with Dr. Huban Gowadia, the Director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO). I appreciated the opportunity to speak with Dr. Gowadia about DNDO’s work to protect Los Angeles – and America at large – from nuclear terrorism. Later, I joined Mayor Eric Garcetti and Rep. Ted Lieu for a DNDO demonstration of nuclear detection equipment. We also participated in a discussion of DNDO’s Securing the Cities program, which partners with state, local, and tribal agencies to detect, report, and respond to nuclear and radiological dangers in major metropolitan areas, including the Los Angeles/Long Beach region. As the top Democrat on the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, I am committed to ensuring that our law enforcement personnel have the resources they need to protect America from nuclear and radiological threats.

Congrats to the Downey Unified School District on its new $6 million grant from the State of California! This grant was one of just 40 Career Pathway Trust grants awarded to California programs that combine academic education and career technical training. What a great opportunity for Downey Unified to bolster its technical education resources and to continue its excellent work of preparing #DUSD students for 21st century jobs! http://www.presstelegram.com/social-affairs/20150527/downey-unified-clinches-6m-grant

Led my annual hospital and clinic roundtables with health care leaders from across our district and beyond! I was very glad to see a robust turnout at both events. We had productive and insightful discussions about the Medicaid 1115 Waiver Renewal, behavioral health integration into primary care, and workforce concerns, among many other issues. I especially want to thank Melissa Stafford Jones, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Region IX Director; Mari Cantwell, California's Chief Deputy Director of Health Care Programs; and Alexander Li, the LA County Department of Health Services’ Deputy Director of Care Transitions, for serving as panelists at both roundtables.

What a pleasure to congratulate Paramount High School seniors at their awards ceremony! Graduating from high school is not only a huge accomplishment -- it is also a big step into the real world. I saluted the seniors and their parents for their hard work, and wished them the very best of luck in the years to come. I also had the privilege of presenting the class's top students with Certificates of Special Congressional Recognition! Here we are with Principal Greg Buckner.
