About Mike Feuer
Mike wrote the law authorizing Los Angeles's Measure R, which will fund $40 billion in dramatic transportation improvements throughout Los Angeles County. He authored the biggest leap forward in chemicals policy in decades, granting California officials broad authority to regulate dangerous chemicals found in consumer products. Mike wrote the Crime Gun Identification Act, endorsed by more than 65 police chiefs and sheriffs, establishing the nation's first requirement that semi-automatic handguns be equipped with technology that imprints bullet cartridges with data establishing who purchased the gun that fired them. Now he is focused on bills to promote sweeping water conservation measures; use technology to produce a major decrease in drunk driving; and post grades at nursing homes. Mike is also a key leader on efforts to broadly reform state government.
Mike served on the Los Angeles City Council for six years, delivering budgets that were on time, balanced and effective when he chaired its Budget and Finance Committee.
