Sep 19, 2014 Press Release
Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) continued his effort to convince Speaker John Boehner that the House of Representatives should not adjourn early for seven weeks of campaigning. Yesterday, Rep. Peters led 42 of his colleagues in sending a letter to the Speaker demanding votes on important, pending legislation.
Sep 16, 2014 Press Release
“Far too often pregnant workers are denied simple, minor work adjustments – like receiving assistance with certain strenuous tasks or being transferred short-term to a less physically demanding job – that too often results in them being fired or having to take unpaid leave” Rep. Peters said. “This type of discrimination is unacceptable. Many households rely on women’s wages to pay the mortgage, educate their children, and save for retirement.”
Sep 15, 2014 Press Release
“Everyone agrees that our current system is broken and in dire need of reform,” Rep. Peters said. “This bipartisan proposal would create jobs, reduce the deficit, and benefit San Diego. It has gotten the support of local and national business groups, labor unions, faith leaders, farmers, and the majority of Americans, and it is time for Speaker Boehner to allow a vote. This legislation could become law if it were given a vote on the House floor."
Sep 15, 2014 Op-Eds
To get our economy back on track we should be figuring out more ways to help businesses as effectively as this Bank does instead of contemplating getting rid of an agency that creates jobs, grows businesses, contributes to deficit reduction, and supports our global competitiveness. It is imperative that Congress reauthorize the Export-Import Bank.

Sep 9, 2014 Press Release
“Women deserve equal pay for equal work, period,” Rep. Peters said. “As we continue the work of generations of women to bring a more fair society, pay equity must be the cornerstone of our efforts. I will continue to call on Speaker Boehner to bring this bill to the floor for a vote – women and girls in San Diego and across the country deserve nothing less.”
