I led a letter co-signed by 48 House colleagues telling the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to #CountKids in NIH-sponsored clinical trials! If we want children to benefit from scientific advances, and if we want to understand how childhood diseases develop, then it is imperative that we include children in these trials. It is up to us, as members of Congress, to insist that children’s participation in this research is documented and tracked. I am very pleased that so many of my congressional colleagues have joined me in this important effort. We are helping to ensure that future generations of children will live longer and healthier lives. Read our letter to the NIH here: http://ow.ly/4n9HXG

Today, it was my great privilege to announce a House Resolution supporting America’s bid to hold the 2024 #Olympic and #Paralympic Games in #LosAngeles! Thanks to LA's vast array of newer permanent sports facilities, our proven record of hosting successful #Olympics, our diverse and growing population, and our spectacular weather, there is no city in the world better suited to successfully host these 21st century Games in a way that breaks records but doesn’t break the bank. At this morning’s event on Capitol Hill, I announced the #LA2024 resolution alongside LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, LA2024 Chairman Casey Wasserman, Olympic legend Janet Evans, and some of my LA-area House colleagues. We addressed a room overflowing with LA political and business leaders, and later brought them all outside to take a photo on the Capitol steps! The rainy weather gave us all added inspiration to #FollowTheSun to a new Los Angeles Games.

Congratulations to #ParamountHighSchool junior Luis Angel Calderon, the First Place winner of the 23rd Annual Lucille Roybal-Allard Student Art Competition! Luis's digital photo, titled "Pondering Innocence," will be exhibited in the U.S. Capitol for one year, surrounded by student art from across the United States. Luis and a parent will fly to Washington, DC, later this year to attend the opening of the exhibit. Luis also wins a $1,000 scholarship, $200 for art supplies, and $500 to pay for expenses on his trip to Washington. Alfonso Hernandez, a #WarrenHighSchool senior, won Second Place for "Keeping Busy," a black and white traditional photo. Juan Serrano, a #Paramount High School sophomore, won Third Place for "Art Is a Universal Phenomenon," a work created with watercolors and colored pencils. Luis A. Fuentes, a Paramount High School senior, won Honorable Mention for "Under the Moonlight," an image using pencil, watercolors, and tempera paint. The People’s Choice Award winner was Briana Medina, a #DowneyHighSchool senior, for her charcoal drawing titled "Unknown." These winning students will also receive scholarships and money for art supplies. These four art entries will be on display in my District Office in #Commerce for one year. In addition, each winner’s school is eligible to receive a gift card to purchase supplies to advance their art program, and all schools with five or more entries are eligible to receive $100 for art supplies. Thank you to all the students who entered this year's competition! I deeply appreciate your courage in sharing your talent and your perspective with our community.
