As summer vacations end, the legislature is coming back into session to tackle our remaining work for the year.
We’re continuing to work on implementation of our new paid sick days law, which took effect July 1 and guarantees every private sector worker in California the right to earn paid sick leave. You can learn your rights and responsibilities inside and help us make sure the new rules are being respected.
Our office was excited to host our annual Junior Legislator Program this summer, welcoming a dozen local high school students for an immersive month learning about the legislative process and even developing their own proposals for new laws. You can read more about our Junior Legislators inside, and if you or a student you know are interested in participating, be sure to contact our office for next year’s session!
I look forward to getting back to the Capitol to see through our bills protecting grocery workers, addressing gender bias in the workers' compensation system, helping homeowners in HOAs reduce their water use, improving safety standards for student athletes, and boosting voter registration. And, of course, I hope to see you out in the community soon!
It is an honor to represent and serve you.
