Rep. Chu Calls on Speaker Ryan to Allow a Vote on Gun Reform

Jun 21, 2016 Press Release

Today, Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27), called on Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to allow a vote on legislation that would prevent those on the No Fly list from being able to buy a gun before the House takes a week-long break on Friday. The bill, H.R. 1076, Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2015, was introduced in December 2015 by Reps. Pete King (NY-02) and Mike Thompson (CA-05) and would allow the FBI and Attorney General to prevent suspected terrorists from buying lethal firearms and explosives. A similar bill in the Senate, introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (CA), earned a majority of votes on Monday night, but failed to reach the 60-vote threshold needed to defeat a filibuster.

Rep. Chu Opposes Xenophobic Language in Legislative Appropriations Bill

Jun 10, 2016 Press Release

Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 5325, the Fiscal Year 2017 Legislative Branch Appropriations Act. This bill appropriates $1.19 billion for the operations of the House of Representatives, as well as $2.29 billion for other legislative branch agencies and programs affiliated with the House, like the Capitol Police, the Library of Congress, the Government Accountability Office, and the Government Printing Office. The bill also includes report language that seeks to force the Library of Congress to continue using the term “illegal aliens.” This provision is in response to the Library’s March 2016 decision to replace this term with the words “noncitizens” and “unauthorized immigration” after a lengthy review process determined “alien” to be pejorative and recommend it’s use be discontinued. Due to the inclusion of this provision, Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) voted against the bill
