Congressman Mike Thompson Letter to ICE

March 2017 Report from Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry

Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry co-hosted and attended town hall forum with Senator Mike McGuire in Middletown about rebuilding after the fires.
Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry attended and co-sponsored Affordable Care Act town hall forum with Congressman Mike Thompson, Senators Dodd and McGuire and Assemblymembers Wood and Levine.
Assembly Aguiar-Curry continues to work with Senator McGuire and Lake County on the Anderson Springs Sewer Project.
Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry has been in close contact with Sheriff Martin and Lake County about the recent floods.
Staff from the Assemblymember’s office will be attending the Lake County Senior Summit.

People living in pharmacy-deprived areas, both rural and urban, face many barriers to obtaining comprehensive medical care. These patients desire more convenient access to their health care services, and remote pharmacy dispensing is a proven model to provide improved care that is both safe and effective.
Under existing law, prescription drugs can only be dispensed by a licensed pharmacy and pharmacist. There is no current authorization for licenses to be issued to remote dispensing pharmacies, and no existing use of telepharmacy communication services in California.
AB 401 creates a state license for remote dispensing pharmacies. The Board of Pharmacy will issue these licenses and determine the pharmacy-deprived locations eligible for a remote dispensing pharmacy.

AB 707 – Blue Ribbon Committee for the Rehabilitation of Clear Lake
AB 707 would establish a Blue Ribbon Committee for the Rehabilitation of Clear Lake, housed within the Natural Resources Agency. By working towards improving the environmental quality of the lake, this bill will benefit Lake County as a first step in helping the local economy through promoting tourism and job creation.

AB 273 – “Unlocking Opportunities for Families” – Subsidized Child Care Eligibility Criteria
In order to be eligible for state subsidized child care, families are required to meet eligibility requirements for income and need. AB 273 would add ESL and HSE educational programs to the list of eligibility criteria for state subsidized child development services under the California Educational Code.

California Democratic Party – Take Action

Frustrated by Trump and his policies?

Let’s hold our Republican Congressmembers’ feet to the fire!

Here’s how to help to make REAL change:


Attend or Demand a Town Hall

 Hold Republican Congressional members accountable. Too many Republicans are hiding from the public – and we deserve to be heard. Plan to attend a local Republican Congressional town hall or call on your local Republican congressional member to host one.


Make Some Phone Calls

 There’s nothing more persuasive than a call from a congressional constituent. If you don’t live in a Republican congressional district, you can still call Democrats who do and ask them to get involved!


Rallies, Marches and Trainings

 Click here to see a listing of visibility events with other unaffiliated allies. Keep checking back for more – they are updating their sites daily – and we will be adding more!


Letters to the Editor

 Write a letter to the editor and make your voice heard, urging your local, state, and congressional representatives to continue to protect progressive values for all. Remember: these are brief and each paper has it’s own submission guidelines.


Congressman Mike Thompson February 2017 Legislative Report

February Legislative Update

  • Mike held a series of Healthcare Town Halls across the district to get the community’s thoughts on the GOP’s plan to gut the Affordable Care Act. He has held events in Vallejo, Martinez, Napa, and Santa Rosa—the last of which drew a capacity crowd of more than 2,000 constituents. Mike is taking your concerns and stories back to Washington as he prepares to fight for the ACA on the Health Subcommittee.
  • With Congress and the country still reeling from the President’s Muslim ban, Mike cosponsored two bills to protect immigrants’ rights. The Dreamers, Immigrants, and Refugees (DIRe) Legal Aid Act would provide help to the most vulnerable among us so they can receive legal assistance should they face detention or deportation. The Build Bridges Not Walls Act would block the President’s costly, ineffective, and insulting border wall.
  • In the wake of the allegations around Michael Flynn and his subsequent resignation, Mike called for an independent investigation into the administration’s ties to Russia.
  • With Women’s History Month right around the corner, Mike began accepting nominations for his annual Woman of the Year Awards, recognizing exception leaders in business, public service, philanthropy, and other sectors. The winners will be announced this month at a special ceremony.
  • At the urging of local law enforcement officers from our community, Mike led a group of lawmakers in calling on ICE to remove the word “POLICE” from its gear. By misidentifying themselves as police officers, ICE risks undermining the relationships between local law enforcement and immigrant communities. This puts everyone at risk, as crimes could go unreported for fear a victim or their loved one may be deported.
  • As Chairman of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, Mike urged his colleagues to bring law enforcement officers as their guests to the President’s Address to a Joint Session. Together they held a press conference on Republican Proposals to Undermine Public Safety—raising much-needed awareness on the GOP’s attempts to deregulate silencers and weaken concealed carry permitting procedures.
  • Mike also launched “Adopt a District” to help elect Democrats in swing districts. He’ll host two fundraisers for Jon Ossoff in the GA-06 race on March 24th—one in Sonoma and one in Napa.
