I applaud the Biden administration for restoring California’s authority to set its own, stronger vehicle emissions standards. California set 2035 as the target by which all vehicles sold must be zero-emission. The restoration of this waiver will help make that goal a reality.

California has long been a leader in clean air and climate policy, working with auto manufacturers to set and achieve ambitious environmental goals that protect public health, safeguard clean air and save money for consumers.

Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett in their confirmation hearings all recognized the importance of upholding precedent. The right to abortion has been reaffirmed repeatedly and is established precedent. Listen to Judge Jackson share her thoughts on the right to abortion:

JUST IN: The Senate passed my bill with Senators Grassley and Schatz to cut red tape around the research process of marijuana and marijuana-derived medications. This will help get FDA-approved, marijuana-derived medications safety to patients.

We only have one planet and we must do all we can to protect it. On the 52nd #EarthDay , I encourage everyone to recommit to doing their part to fight for clean water, land and air.

Wildfire and drought are the two largest threats to California, and every year climate change makes them more dangerous. If we’re to successfully preserve Earth for future generations, we must take significant steps to reduce carbon emissions.

California voters passed Prop 12 in 2018 to set humane standards for farm animal products sold in the state. A lawsuit seeking to invalidate it could let large, multistate companies evade state laws designed to protect the health and safety of constituents. That can’t happen.


UPDATE: Republicans rejected our motion to adjourn until Monday so senators could read the bill they just introduced. RT If you think senators should have time to read a bill that affects every single American.

Brett Kavanaugh used materials stolen from Democratic senators to advance President Bush's judicial nominees. He was asked about this in 2004, 2006 and this week. His answers were not true.

Another mass shooting. Reportedly another AR-15. My bill to ban assault weapons is ready for a vote. How long will we accept weapons of war being used to slaughter our children?

If a person can’t pass a background check, they shouldn’t be able to buy a gun. RT if you agree.

UPDATE: 40 senators now support our bill to bar children from being taken from their parents at the border. We’re continuing to ask Republican senators to join our bill. If you’re represented by a Republican senator, please ask them to cosponsor S.3036. #FamiliesBelongTogether 

The assault weapons ban was effective. When the ban was in place, the number of gun massacres fell by 37 percent. The number of people dying from gun massacres fell by 43 percent. Republicans blocked an extension of the ban. We're fighting to reinstate it. #StudentsStandUp 

Judge Kavanaugh just said Burwell v. Hobby Lobby was about "abortion-inducing drugs." That's a GROSS misunderstanding of the case, which was about insurance coverage for contraceptives. It's further proof of Kavanaugh's hostility toward women's reproductive freedom. #WhatsAtStake
