Congressman Kevin Kiley proudly serves the people of California’s 3rd District in the House of Representatives in his first term in office. He is dedicated to using his position to promote fiscally sound policies to reduce inflation, increase choice in education, and responsibly manage our public lands to preserve our beautiful forests and prevent catastrophic wildfires.
The son of a special education teacher, Kevin was born in the district and attended its local public schools. He began his career as a 10th grade English teacher at Manual Arts High School in inner-city Los Angeles. There, he chaired the English Department, led his students to significant academic gains, and founded an award-winning speech and debate team. After graduating law school, Kevin helped prosecute the civil case against China’s Huawei Technologies for intellectual property theft and defended the Constitution in California courts. Later, Kevin became a prosecutor and represented the People of California against violent felons as Deputy Attorney General.
Kevin was first elected to the California State Assembly in 2016. In his six years in the State Legislature, Kevin introduced the most significant school choice legislation in recent years and authored groundbreaking new laws on protections for sexual assault victims, privacy, criminal justice reform, and freedom of speech. In 2020, he was named National Legislator of the Year by the Association of Independent Workers for his work advancing economic freedom.
Each year in the Legislature, Kevin gave up $40,000 in annual income by declining the per diem allowance, declined a pay raise granted to the governor and legislature in 2021, and also introduced legislation to end special perks like a private DMV office that is available exclusively to state lawmakers and their staff.
Kevin holds a bachelor’s degree from Harvard, a law degree from Yale, and a master’s in secondary education from Loyola Marymount.
Congressman Kiley is proud to serve on the House Judiciary Committee and was appointed to three subcommittees: the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Limited Government; the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet; and the Subcommittee on Crime and Federal Government Surveillance. Rep. Kiley also serves on the Education and the Workforce Committee and is Chair of the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections, as well as a member of the Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education.
