The measure, introduced by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.), is named in honor of Gerardo Hernandez, the Transportation Security Administration screener who was shot to death Nov. 1 while on duty at LAX.
U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, a longtime activist and Los Angeles resident since the early 1960s, has seen most of that change — both good and bad. Despite the changes, she says, the struggle continues.
Fifty years ago today, the U.S. Senate adopted the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, which outlawed discrimination based on race, gender, religion and national origin.
The 73-27 vote on June 19, 1964, after 83 days of Senate debate, was a watershed moment followed quickly by the act's approval in the House of Representatives and President Lyndon Johnson signing it into law on July 2 of that year.

Student, teachers and parents from across California's 43rd Congressional District joined Congresswoman Maxine Waters at the Lawndale Community Center on Friday, May 2, where she announced this year's Congressional Art Competition winners. An independent panel of art instructors and professional artists volunteered their time and expertise to choose four winners from 41 entries, the largest number of submissions ever received.
At the Hawthorne Memorial Center, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Ranking Member of the Financial Services Committee, welcomed approximately 250 women entrepreneurs and business owners to her "Women in Business Roundtable" on Friday, April 25. Experts from Federal, state and local agencies and the private sector were present to provide attendees with valuable information to help their entrepreneurial dreams become a reality. This was the second roundtable held by Congresswoman Waters following a successful gathering in another 43rd district city.
The panel, moderated by Waters, represented a diversity of viewpoints on the ethics and effectiveness of National Security Administration spying at home and abroad.
