House voting on bill (HR 10) to rewrite Dodd-Frank and take away post-2008 financial protections for consumers and small businesses. If you have extra time this week, call your Rep to oppose this bill!
State level: CA’s single-payer health bill passed the CA Senate 23-14 and will now advance to the Assembly. It will likely be amended there to include taxes to pay for the measure, which will then require 2/3 votes in both chambers.
Issa’s activities: (Local section)
It took Darrell Issa until Friday to post a press release about 45’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, awkwardly straddling the fence by both giving support and hinting at disagreement with Trump: “…I would have preferred the President work within the agreement to ensure other nations are doing their fair share. It’s noteworthy the President instructed negotiations to begin immediately on re-entry or on crafting a better deal to ensure more equitable contributions from our partners around the world.” Representative Issa, your district deserves to have a leader who stands up to an ignorant White House.
6/1 – SD Union Tribune reports the ACLU states the conditions the city of Vista has placed on the Tuesday Issa protests violate the First Amendment, and other reports indicated they threaten to sue the city unless it removes restrictions.
