2014 Legislation

 

BILLS AUTHORED BY ASM. GONZALEZ THAT WERE SIGNED INTO LAW INCLUDE:

AB 1522: Earned Sick Days
Guarantees every private-sector employee in California the right to earn three paid sick days per year.

AB 1873: VOTE Act to Allow for Mail Ballot Special Elections
Allows for the County of San Diego to send every voter during legislative special elections a mail ballot in an effort to increase voter participation and cut millions of dollars in costs. In addition to receiving a mail ballot, voters would have the opportunity to vote in per-son the weekend before an election and on Election Day at a select number of polling places.

AB 2104: HOA Water Conservation
Amid an ongoing water crisis, bans Home Owners Associations (HOAs) from fining homeowners who install drought-tolerant plants and landscaping.
