It is disappointing that, once again, Republican leaders have failed to complete the appropriations process on time, and decided that critical government funding decisions can be delayed until December. While I voted for tonight’s Continuing Resolution so that our government can keep functioning, I have cast my vote in the hope that Congress will act in December to pass an omnibus spending bill that does more to create jobs, bolster paychecks, improve our infrastructure, and keep our country safe. The CR includes a badly needed and long-overdue $1.1 billion to fund our fight against the Zika virus. While I would have preferred a bill that funded President Obama's $1.9 billion Zika request, the funding in this resolution is an important first step in helping us to combat Zika's terrible threat. In addition, I am pleased that Republican leaders agreed to stop tying this funding to partisan political tactics, such as gutting the Clean Water Act. However, I am concerned about several elements of the CR. For example, it hobbles the Export-Import Bank's ability to help American businesses and workers, and it prevents the Securities and Exchange Commission from making public companies' political spending more transparent. Again, I voted for this CR to keep government doors open. I hope the December omnibus will address the defects I described, and endeavor on many fronts to make our nation more prosperous and secure.

I was proud today to vote for the bipartisan Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2016, which reauthorizes water infrastructure projects nationwide. I was heartened that after several months of inaction, Republican leaders included aid in this bill to the citizens of Flint, Michigan, who have been afflicted by devastating environmental health risks. As an Angelena, I was also pleased that this WRDA authorizes an equal cost-share between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the City of Los Angeles for the #LosAngelesRiver Ecosystem Restoration project. I fought alongside my colleagues Congressman Xavier Becerra and Congressman Adam Schiff to include this cost-share agreement in the final bill. With this cost-share, the city and the Corps become true partners in the #LARiver revitalization project to restore park space and wetlands, build new public spaces, create recreational opportunities, improve public health, strengthen the regional economy, and bolster civic pride. This WRDA is an important step in our efforts to make Los Angeles a greener and more vibrant place to live!
