    A top building trades union is launching a midterm-election assault on House Democrats who oppose construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. A letter distributed Friday by the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) to the districts of 27 House Democrats calls for union members to make sure their representative "feels the power and the fury of LIUNA this November." Their crime: signing a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry last month urging him to reject Keystone, which would carry oil sands from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries.

    **SNIP** "She's operational, she gets the job done," Pelosi (D-San Francisco) said during a round table meeting at the Feminist Majority Foundation's headquarters in Beverly Hills. "She's going to be focused on what she is doing here, but her election will lift up people across our country." Pelosi appeared with Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), U.S. Rep. Judy Chu (D-Monterey Park), U.S. Rep. Janice Hahn (D-San Pedro) and legendary Democratic party activist Roz Wyman, who in 1953 became the youngest person to win a Los Angeles City Council seat. Speaking in front of vintage pictures of suffragettes, the women all returned...

    The House of Representatives passed a bi-partisan resolution Tuesday night reaffirming “In God We Trust” as the official motto of the United States. The 396-9 vote came at the request of Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) – in part over President Obama’s refusal to correct remarks he made that misstated the motto as “E pluribus unum” instead of “In God We Trust.”Lawmakers voting against “In God We Trust” include Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY), Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich), Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA), Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA), Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA),...

    Members of California's congressional delegation called on Gov. Jerry Brown Friday to join three other states in suspending participation in a controversial federal immigration enforcement program. The seven Democratic representatives acted after the Los Angeles City Council voted overwhelmingly this week to support legislation allowing local communities to opt out of the Secure Communities program and Sheriff Lee Baca, a strong proponent, qualified his support in a letter to immigrant activists.In recent weeks, governors in Illinois, New York and Massachusetts have sought to suspend or have declined to enter into Secure Communities participation agreements. When it was launched in 2008,...
  • Dan Walters: Two vacancies give governor an opportunity

    Barack Obama's election as president indirectly created two vacancies in California's congressional delegation. In the ensuing game of political musical chairs, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger could redistribute political power in the state – and perhaps even name his own potential successor. It all began with Obama's selection of Southern California Congresswoman Hilda Solis as labor secretary and Northern California Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher as undersecretary of state for arms control and international security. A special election to fill Solis' heavily Democratic seat was held last month. Judy Chu, a member of the state Board of Equalization, emerged as the putative winner, needing...

    The state Board of Education on Monday approved options for textbooks to be used in classrooms through 2014, but rejected pleas from bilingual education advocates who wanted to include textbooks that address the needs of English learners while teaching California's curriculum. Critics of the current options for schools - including Assemblywomen Judy Chu, D-Monterey Park, and Jackie Goldberg, D-Los Angeles - wanted the board to also let schools use textbooks they said would help non-English speakers with vocabulary while learning basic subject matter. Instead, the board voted 6-4 to adopt the recommendations of its curriculum committee, leaving English-as-a-second-language instruction separate...
