A lifelong Bay area resident and the daughter of a truck driver and a cafeteria cook, Rep. Lofgren (CA-19) attended Stanford on a California State Scholarship and worked the night shift at the Eastman Kodak plant to pay for non-tuition expenses. Lofgren is currently Chair of the Committee on House Administration.
As Chair of the Committee on House Administration, Lofgren was instrumental in ensuring H.R. 1, the For the People Act, was the first piece of legislation brought to the House floor in the 116th Congress. This bill is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. It is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. Within H.R. 1, Lofgren led on automatic voter registration, redistricting, voter purging, and election security.
