Lois Capps (D)

US House of Representatives, District 22

These statements are shown exactly as they appeared at in November 2000

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."
