Katie Porter for Congress

We need to stand up to Big Oil companies to prevent offshore drilling and protect our beautiful California coastline. Here in Orange County, we’ve seen what failing to protect our environment looks like: oil leaks that close our beaches and shutter local businesses, and deadly wildfires that destroy homes and pollute our air.

Katie was proud to support the passage of a law that makes investments in drought resiliency, electric vehicles, and clean energy. This bill will help protect our environment and address the climate crisis now, before it becomes an even more expensive problem for taxpayers to fix.

The legislation included Katie’s proposal to raise the rate Big Oil companies pay the federal government to drill on our public lands–getting taxpayers a fair deal from Big Oil.

Katie has also introduced legislation to create a National Disaster Safety Board, which would streamline how the government studies wildfires and makes recommendations for protecting Americans and saving taxpayer money.

Katie advocates for smart policies that will help preserve our environment and protect our planet for our kids and grandkids. That includes making sure all kids can enjoy the outdoors, which is why she led the fight to fund the Every Kid Outdoors program, that gives free access to our national parks to 4th graders and their families. To keep Orange County families safe from toxic chemicals, she’s led efforts to increase the cleanup of harmful PFAS chemicals and believes every American should have safe, clean water.
