That’s why I was among the first to sign a discharge petition to force a vote on a “clean” debt ceiling increase. We now have 213 signatures on that …  Continue Reading

Hello, Last week, we voted on House Republicans’ top legislative priority: The Polluters Over People Act (H.R 1). We must do everything we can to shore up our domestic energy supplies and speed up our transition to a clean energy future, but unfortunately this bill misses the mark, which is why I voted against it. Rep. Huffman speaks on the House floor in opposition to HR 1. I want to highlight just a few of the provisions that made this bill a non-starter for me. …  Continue Reading

Standing Up Against Extreme SCOTUS Decisions: A Message from Rep. Huffman

Hello,  This has been a difficult month for us all in the face of an avalanche of extreme, precedent-breaking decisions by the Supreme Court.

More than “Thoughts & Prayers”- Addressing the American Gun Violence Epidemic: A Message from Rep. Huffman

Hello,Last week, we lost 21 innocent lives in a senseless act of terror at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

Let me be clear: this is an epidemic that is uniquely American.  Since 2020, gun violence has been the …  Continue Reading

Defending Reproductive Rights: A Message from Rep. Huffman

Hello,Last week, I was outraged to see the leaked draft of the Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade. Let me make sure one thing is very clear: in California and other states that care about women's rights, abortion will remain legal and safe.       But for millions of women in other states, the fundamental right to make their own decisions about abortion and potentially other reproductive services is about to be taken away by a radical Supreme Court. …  Continue Reading
