FRESNO – Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) released the following statement in response to the incident at the U.S. Capitol:

"Once again, we find our Capitol under attack. I am saddened to learn that we have lost another brave police officer protecting the People's House. We are not in session and in our districts for the Easter break, but I am closely monitoring the situation.

Following the events of January 6th, this only underlines the need for bipartisan agreement to protect the symbol of democracy, our nation's Capitol, and the people who work there on behalf of all Americans."
