US Representative Katie Porter to Provide Update on Washington During Visit to Greater Irvine Chamber
Tuesday, July 23, 2019
U.S. Representative Katie Porter (CA-45) will address business and community leaders, during the Greater Irvine Chamber Government Affairs Committee meeting on Thursday, Aug. 1, 8:30 – 9:30 a.m., where she will provide updates from her first six months in Washington D.C.
An Irvine resident, Congresswoman Porter represents the Orange County residents in California’s 45th Congressional District. Before her election to Congress, Rep. Porter was appointed by then-Attorney General Kamala Harris to be California’s independent watchdog against big banks. As a consumer finance expert, she also helped Congress pass the original Credit CARD Act in 2009, which enacted federal protections from abusive credit card fees.
In Congress, Rep. Porter remains dedicated to putting Orange County families first. She has been a key supporter of legislation to reduce the influence of dark money in politics and restore ethics in Washington.
As a single working mom, Rep. Porter knows firsthand about the challenges faced by working families. She is committed to finding solutions to make life easier for these parents and has supported proposals to allow more pre-tax income to go towards childcare and expand access to paid family medical leave.
Registration is required for this event, and is open only to Greater Irvine Chamber members.
