The Weekly CD-21 Newsletter


Welcome! This newsletter is designed to keep you updated on what’s happening in the 21st Congressional District. It will catch you up to speed on TJ’s work and the various ways you can volunteer and get involved in local organizations. 


 

REP. TJ COX’S OPEN HOUSE

Last Saturday, August 3rd, TJ held a stunning Open House in Selma and met with more than 100 of his constituents. He let everyone know about the various services his congressional office provides, gave a legislative update, and recognized all of the hard work done by his staff and interns. Rep. Cox noted that his first 200 days in office have been extremely productive for the people of the Central Valley. Enjoy some photos from the event below!

 


CAPTIOL HILL HIGHLIGHTS

Since being in office, TJ Cox has voted to pass H.R. 6, the Dream and Promise Act which aims to provide a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers. Additionally, he voted to strengthen protections for people with pre-existing conditions, lower prescription drug costs, and bring down health care premiums.

The House passed the Paycheck Fairness Act which aims to close the gender gap, and reauthorized the Violence against Women Act. Most recently, TJ Voted to increase the minimum wage to help working-class people support their families.

Additionally, TJ saw his Family Farmer Relief Act pass the House and the Senate. TJ’s legislation will give Central Valley farmers the tools to thrive amidst the challenges brought on by Trump’s Trade War. Way to go TJ!
