Video: Capps announces plans to retire at end of term 

Capps plans districtwide tour to highlight legislative priorities

Today, Rep. Lois Capps (D-Santa Barbara), who has represented the Central Coast in Congress since being sworn in on March 17, 1998, released a video statement announcing that this will be her final term in the House of Representatives and that she will retire at the conclusion of the 114th Congress. Watch the video below.

Thursday and Friday, Capps will embark on a districtwide tour of the Central Coast, meeting and speaking with community members to highlight her legislative priorities for the next two years, which include veterans, small businesses, health care, education, and the environment.

On Thursday, Capps will visit the new Head Start center in Nipomo to meet with staff and discuss how early learning education programs are critical to closing achievement gaps. Following that visit, she will go to Paso Bamboo Farm & Nursery in Paso Robles to highlight the importance of agriculture and small businesses to the Central Coast economy. She will then meet with public health officials from San Luis Obispo County to talk with them about a new climate change pilot program they are operating.

On Friday, Capps will visit the Los Niños Head Start Center in Santa Barbara where she will read to students as part of the Every Word Counts: Head Start & Congress Read Together program. She will then host a press conference in Lompoc promoting the Federal Firefighter Fairness Act, a bill she recently introduced. Finally, she will attend a Veterans Treatment Court graduation in Santa Maria.
