A message from Mike - Capitol Recap!
August was a busy month as we finished the Assembly session in Sacramento. I am excited that THREE of my top priority bills are currently waiting to be signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown.
AB 1577 - seeks to improve water quality in the Los Angeles County Sativa Water District by appointing an administrator to stabilize operations, and help prepare for consolidation with a larger water company.
AB 2448 - ensures that youth in foster care and local juvenile detention facilities have access to computers and internet for education purposes, and contact with supportive adults.
AB 2247- establishes a clear structure when foster youth transition from one placement to another, including; advanced notice to the youth when they are being asked to leave, and a placement preservation plan to resolve outstanding problems before placement change is made.
I invite you to visit www.a64.asmdc.org for more information, and to keep up with exciting events and important news.
