Congresswoman Karen Bass

Representing the 37th District of California

Local Issues

My office is committed to fighting for the priorities of the California’s 37th Congressional District:

  • Jobs & Economic Recovery– Clearly, this is the most important priority for our nation. We must spur economic development by investing in infrastructure and industry within the United States as well as cutting taxes cuts for the poor and middle class
  • Civil Rights– Expand equal rights and opportunity to all communities, especially those who have been historically underserved and underrepresented
  • Education– Expand access to quality education for all. Address achievement gaps by ensuring excellent resources for all of our schools from Culver City to Los Angeles
  • Environment– Protect clean air, water, and land. Expand park access and resources, specially for parks and waterways in the 37th Congressional District, including the Ballona Creek, the Kenneth Hahn Park, and the LA River
  • Health Care– Protect gains made through the Affordable Care Act and expand access to health care for all. Assist with the successful implementation of Covered California.
  • Immigration– Support comprehensive immigration reform, protecting the rights of all residents, and supporting access to education and health, especially for youth
  • Human Services– Improve the foster care system and protect the social safety net
  • Senior Issues– Protect and preserve Social Security and Medicare
  • Transportation– Advocate for the American Fast Forward and 30/10 plan to transform transportation infrastructure in Los Angeles with 30 projects in the next ten years
  • Small Business– Expand access to capital and procurement opportunities

For more information concerning my work and views on local issues, please contact my LA office. I look forward to your feedback.

February 12, 2018 Press Release

February 2, 2018 Press Release

“Despite repeated warnings from the intelligence community, the Department of Justice and the FBI of 'material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy', the President and House Republicans today released a noncomprehensive memo (one that they may have drafted together) about the federal surveillance of Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

December 11, 2017 Press Release

Throughout the year, Rep. Bass was able to engage and inform thousands of constituents through town halls and community meetings addressing some of the nation’s most critical issues including executive oversight, immigration, workforce development, health care, and foster care. The End of Year Report Back gave Rep. Bass an opportunity to recap this year’s legislative accomplishments and announce her plan for 2018.

December 8, 2017 Press Release

“This museum, which has been years in the making, is opening this weekend because of the selfless and heroic work of people like Congressmen John Lewis and Bennie Thompson. Based on the history that Trump has with the African American community – whether it was calling the Central Park Five ‘muggers and murderers’ in the 90s or calling civil rights icon John Lewis ‘all talk, talk, talk - no action’ on Twitter – it is clear that his appearance at the grand opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum is an affront to not only the museum, but Black people across the country.
