Stories by Kitty Felde
Most folks rave about the national Christmas tree in the backyard of the White House. I'm partial to the Farragut North Metro station myself. There are bows on the handrails and candy canes leading to the escalator.
The US Census numbers are out. California won’t pick up any new seats in Congress. But this state will still have the largest congressional delegation.
The most recent WikiLeaks revelations mention an Orange County Congressman’s trip to Honduras with a pair of campaign contributors trying to do business with that country. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher says the trip was neither illegal nor out of the ordinary.
I love the "Washington Post"'s want ads. Stuff shows up there that you never see in the "LA Times." Like a posting for the Dean of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.
Immigration reformers “dream” faded Saturday when the DREAM Act didn’t muster enough votes to prevent a filibuster. But an LA Congressman saluted the front line troops pushing for passage: the young scholars who call themselves "dreamers."
Just saw the wonderful "The King's Speech" on opening night here in DC. (yeah, I know you guys in LA saw it a month ago...)
The U.S. Senate is expected to vote tomorrow on the immigration bill known as the DREAM Act. The measure would grant legal status to students and members of the armed forces brought to this country illegally as children. A San Fernando Valley congressman says the vote may hinge upon comes what he calls the “crass” subject of politics over policy.
Immigration activists are making a final push for passage of the DREAM Act. The measure would offer legal residency to undocumented students and members of the military. The US House has already passed the measure. The Senate expects to vote on it tomorrow morning. Some Senators fielded calls from their Catholic bishops back home.
It appears the House ethics committee underestimated Maxine Waters.
An Orange County congresswoman lost her bid to become the first woman in a leadership position on the House committee that oversees the military.
This Sunday, officials from Pacific Gas and Electric and the California Public Utilities Commission will hold a town hall in San Bruno about last September’s gas pipeline explosion. Federal investigators haven’t settled on a cause for the blast that killed eight people.
It's mostly a case of same names, different titles.
The House ethics committee says it will continue its investigation of a congressman from Orange County. The probe involves a pair of fundraisers held before a key vote on financial reform.
You can hardly walk the halls of the House office building these days. Everybody seems to be moving. The new kids get sworn in after New Years, but with so many veteran members defeated in the mid-terms, that means that many more offices available for swap.
By a 250 to 175 vote, the US House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to repeal the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. The bill now goes to the Senate where its passage is less certain.
