It’s been a hectic month in the Capitol with hundreds of bills making their way through the Assembly Appropriations Committee, covering every topic imaginable. You can find updates inside this newsletter on the progress of our own legislation, including efforts to reduce the costs of basic necessities for working families, improve public safety, enhance workplace safety protections, reduce human trafficking, expand voting rights and more.
In between all our work in Sacramento, I was happy to join representatives from Facebook for an exciting small business event here in the district, where I honored outstanding small businesses with hundreds of local business leaders. I was also fortunate to join students and faculty from our 2016 80th Assembly District adopted school as they received a $5,000 grant to support their health initiatives in City Heights. Check out information on our small business honorees; get the details about the great work at our adopted school, and read about many of our other recent community events inside.
This month, we’re also welcoming our 2016 group of local interns from High Tech High in Chula Vista. We always have a great time with local young people, who are passionate about the legislative process and are already growing into effective future leader for the community. It’s wonderful to add these students to our team!
Please stay in touch. I hope to see you soon.
