Lois Capps on the Economy
"To continue our strong economy, we must exercise fiscal responsibility. I support
using the large projected budget surplus to pay down the national debt, shore up
Social Security, and invest in education and health care. The surplus also gives
us the opportunity to enact comprehensive targeted tax cuts."
Lois Capps on Education
"Having worked in our public schools for 20 years, I understand that nothing
is more important than the education we provide our children. While there is no substitute
for local control of our schools, I believe there is a role for the federal government
in modernizing our schools, reducing class size, and empowering our teachers."
Lois Capps on the Environment
"Living in one of the most beautiful areas in the nation, I know Central Coast
residents are very concerned about the environment. I have worked hard to find common
ground between environmentalists, farmers and ranchers because I know that agriculture
is one of the critical components of our local business community."
