Health

I am committed to working towards continued access to health care and improving, not repealing, the Affordable Care Act. I will advocate for the central coast’s health care concerns as Congress continues to debate health care reform. Our seniors, veterans, students, families, and everyone in between deserve to feel secure in their health care future. 

For more information concerning work and views related to Health, please contact my office.
