Quote from Website "Protecting our open spaces and California’s sacred wilderness is more than sound public policy- it's an obligation. I also believe that environmental protection is more than preserving the wilderness far away from communities. In Congress, I have fought to protect our daily environment - our tap water, the air that surrounds us, the parks and trails in populated areas, and most importantly, I will continue fighting to ensure that new schools are constructed in safe, non-polluted locations."
