Arlene Osnaya Professor McBride Political Science January 15th, 2018 Title Most people do not know who the US Congressional Senator is in their state, well in California Dianne Feinstein is one of our Congressional Senators. Dianne Feinstein has done a lot for the state of California this includes dealing with the drugs that are smuggled into the United States, the AMBER Alert system, and many other bills or issues going on. In San Francisco, where she grew up, she was the first woman on Board of Supervisors and the first woman mayor. Before Feinstein had made a name for herself in the US Congress she went to Stanford and received her Bachelor’s Degree. In 1992, is when she was elected into the Senate and 25 years later she is still apart of it. She is apart of the Democratic party, and is up for re-election in 2018. Feinstein is apart of the Senate Judiciary Committee, but that is just one of many; some of her key interests as stated earlier are criminalization of border drug tunnels, sex trafficking, preventing sex abuse of amatuer athletes, and many others. A bill that she created was the Feinstein: Concealed Carry Gun Bills ‘Dangerous’ is was issued on July 7th 2012. Until this day the bill has for the most part been ignored. In the article, Dianne Feinstein introduces senate gun control to ban bump stocks, she states “After Sandy Hook, when 20 first graders were slaughtered, I thought for sure we would act. After Orlando I thought we would act, and now after Las Vegas, I hope senators will finally summon the political courage to stand up and say, ‘Enough is enough'” (Dianne). The bill that Dianne defends about guns is an important effort not only for random people walking on the streets, but also all citizens in the United States. Most people do not think it is relevant to their in lives, but for mine it is relevant because I live in a city where two gangs shoot at each other just for property that is not theirs. The most scariest thing about this bill is that it can lead to a positive and negative change; on the positive side of this is mass shootings could be stopped, but as a negative side of this is when cops have to deal with a man or woman that have better artillery that them. The Congressional Representative, of District 38, is Linda Sanchez which has a population of 702,905 people. Some of the cities that are apart of her district are Norwalk, Santa Fe Springs, Cerritos, Whittier, Buena Park, and a couple of others. In her district alone 49.8% are democrats, another 27.6% are Republican, and 22.5% are of other parties. What people do not know about Linda Sanchez was that she was born in Orange, and her parents are immigrants from Mexico. She got her Bachelor’s from California Berkeley that was Arts in Spanish Literature with an emphasis in Bilingual Education. Later on in life she got her law degree from the University of California, Los Angeles. She also has a husband and four sons. After all the hard work she went to school for she was elected into office in 2003 as apart of the Democratic party. Now 15 years later, she is the Congressional Representative and is also in the vice chair of the house caucus, which is also the 5th-highest ranking position in the house of Democratic Leadership. Linda Sanchez is up for re-election in 2018 with the rest of her preeps. One of the many committees Mrs. Sanchez is on is the Ways and Means committee this is for taxes purposes.
