* Protecting California's border environment is one of my top priorities. That is why I introduced the FAIR AIR Act in 2004. This legislation will hold the U.S. and Mexico federal governments accountable for improving the air we breathe!
* I have continued the fight against the U.S. energy companies who built polluting power plants right across the border in Mexico to avoid meeting U.S. environmental standards. The pollution from these power plants make our air quality even worse. We need to stop these plants from polluting our environment!
* It is important to me that I deliver to the people I represent. That is why I have continued fighting to secure the funding and support for both the International Waste Water Treatment Plant in the Tijuana River Valley and for cleaning up the New River in Imperial County! We must stop the border sewage that flows into our own backyards!
