Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California (4)

Water

The Federal Government plays a part in California water allocation and use through a variety of projects and laws.  What, if any, new programs or projects or reforms to existing programs and projects would you support in an effort to handle water shortages caused by the current and any future drought?

No answer provided.
Immigration

Should immigration laws be changed?  What changes would you support?  Please explain why.

No answer provided.
As Congress Member what, if any, policies or legislation would you support to preserve democracy for all US residents?
Answer from Sydney Kamlager:

When I go to Washington, I’ll make it my priority to pass laws that put women’s rights front and center. In addition to championing women’s rights, I see my role as fighting to restore democracy, end voter suppression, and make my district, my state, and my country healthier and affordable. But whether it’s about safeguarding our democracy from assault, defending women’s rights, LGBTQIA rights, and disability rights, or finding ways to help more people achieve the American dream, I will go to Washington with the needs of real people, who look and feel and dream and despair, like those in my district, as my North Star.

 

Greenhouse gas

What legislation, if any, would you support to reduce American greenhouse gas production?  Please explain the reasons for your position.
