Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) will host a telephone town hall Monday (7/21/14) evening with constituents across his district to hear what they think about his approach to growing San Diego’s economy.
To ensure they are contacted for Monday evening’s telephone town hall, which will start at 7:00pm, constituents should contact Congressman Peters’ office either at 858-455-5550 or 202-225-0508 by Friday (7/18/14).
The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday approved a bill that includes $216 million to complete the expansion of the San Ysidro Port of Entry.
The money would be used to pay for an administration and pedestrian building at San Ysidro. The next step would be passage by the Senate.
The funding approved by the House is part of the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act, 2015, or H.R. 5016, which passed 228-195, with strong Republican support.
Rep. Peters met with the president to discuss job creation, how San Diego businesses are increasing exports and the need to secure trade agreements.
