Action News Now has heard from the Chief of Staff of North State Congressional legislator Doug LaMalfa (R) from Butte County. We were assured that Congressmember LaMalfa is fine and has retreated to the safety of his office.

The following statement was released shortly after we spoke with his representative.

"House members and staff are safe and in secure locations. Those who have stormed the Capitol are being dealt with. I am thankful to the Capitol Police who are working hard to protect everyone and secure the Capitol.

Peaceful protests are an important part of American expression, and a cornerstone of our founding. Violence, no matter by who or for what reason is inexcusable and must be dealt with immediately, forcefully and with the full force of the law.

The actions at the Capitol today hurt our country. We intend to resume our duties soon. The voice of the House of the People will not be silenced for long by a small group that violates the goodwill of all Americans to the right to redress their grievances."
