April 16, 2018 Press Release
The National Park Service currently manages 11 units that provide medical services to park visitors, employees, and nearby residents including Yosemite in my district, Yellowstone, Zion, the Grand Canyon, and Death Valley. These include emergency medical services, ambulance transport and clinical services. They treat colds, set broken bones, stabilize heart attacks and strokes, evacuate the severely injured and treat thousands of patients annually.
February 24, 2018 Speeches
When Delavan, Illinois approached its 125th anniversary in 1961, a resident wrote to Wilford Funk of Funk and Wagnalls asking what word described it. Funk couldn’t find one, so he invented the word “quasquicentennial” and it soon appeared in print and entered the English language. It’s an important word on this occasion, and it is a rare word in California -- only 94 other California cities are old enough to have had a quasquicentennial.

November 30, 2017 Press Release
Thank you for scheduling H.R. 3607 for markup. This bill addresses a nagging problem at Yosemite National Park involving a medical clinic that has operated in the Valley since 1929. Like other medical clinics in our national parks, it serves the park and concessionaire employees, their families, and tens of thousands of daily park visitors.
August 22, 2017 Speeches
First, I want to thank Senator Feinstein for restoring the bi-partisan nature of this annual Tahoe Summit. Lincoln once reminded us “that we can succeed only by concert.” We demonstrated that maxim with the enactment of the Tahoe provisions in the Water Infrastructure Improvements Act last December. That wouldn’t have been possible without Republicans and Democrats coming together in Washington.
