March 2016 Message

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

Dear Friend,

March appears to be coming in like a lamb. We missed El Nino but our preparation efforts won't be wasted on La Nina.

During this month we honor Women's History and the many contributions that women have made in countless areas – from the classroom to the board room; from the tennis courts to the Supreme Court; and from the halls of Congress to outer space.

In Sacramento:

  •  I am proud of my legislative package this year. Some highlights include:
    • AB 2388 will help more California families afford mortgages.
    • AB 1691 will address public health and the environment by reducing air pollution.
    • AB 2640 will help stop the spread of HIV by providing much-needed information to patients about preventative measures and medications. 
  • The Statewide Traffic Ticket Amnesty Program expires March 2017.  If you or someone you know has any traffic related tickets, you may be eligible for a 50% to 80% reduction. Click here for more information.   
  • Tax time is upon us and the deadline is not far away.  Please make sure you inquire about qualifying for the new State Earned Income Tax Credit for low-income taxpayers.
