Legislative Update

This week in the House: 

On Monday, the House is voting on HR 4010, the Congressional Subpoena Compliance and Enforcement Act of 2017—sponsored by Issa. This bill would strengthen Congress’s power to serve subpoenas and have them honored—levying fines against the heads of government agencies in the executive branch who do not do as subpoenas request.

On Tuesday, the House is voting on HR 3898, a bill that places financial sanctions on North Korea.

On Wednesday and Thursday, the House is voting on HR 1698—to expand sanctions against Iran with respect to Iran’s ballistic missile program. According to the pro-Israel lobby, this bill was written to strengthen the Iran Deal, not conflict with it—targeting anything having to do with ballistic missile building. According to NIAC Action, a group “advancing peace and the Iranian-American community,” this bill risks undermining the Iran Nuclear Deal. The House will also vote on laws designating Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

Other Updates
Tickets issued at last week's rally
For those of you who haven't heard, a number of rally participants received parking tickets/moving violations last Tuesday. Ellen has filed a formal request for information from the Sheriff's Department - no response so far. Ellen also contacted the ACLU, but that doesn't look promising 

What can you do?
File a complaint with the Citizens' Law Enforcement Review Board
File a complaint with the Sheriff Dept's Internal Affairs by calling (858) 974-2065. Please take action! Don't assume someone else will do it for you.

Coverage of the ticketing:
Protestors' giant chicken prompts attention — from deputies
