Rep. Roybal Allard On Facebook

On this day 100 years ago, my father, Edward R. Roybal, was born. Over his long and fruitful life, he built a remarkable legacy as a Latino political pioneer, as a member of the LA City Council, as a Member of Congress, and as a founder of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, CHCI, and NALEO. He was known far and wide as a champion of the downtrodden, a fighter for the sick and the elderly, a voice for those who had no voice. But to me, and to my brother and sister, he was "Pop." He was the man who taught us the importance of personal integrity, of giving back to our community, of fighting for what is right without seeking credit. We remember and miss him every day, but we take comfort in the values and the accomplishments he has left behind.

Today was our first Energy and Water Appropriations Subcommittee hearing of 2016! I questioned Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Chairman Stephen Burns about the NRC’s work to ensure that America's commercial nuclear plants are protected against seismic activity. We all remember how an earthquake triggered the 2011 disaster at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. That is why I am glad the NRC is obtaining seismic evaluations from all U.S. commercial nuclear plants. I hope the NRC will continue to take all necessary action to keep our communities safe.
