Dear Friends,

This year’s legislative session came to a close with a flurry of excitement as we worked deep into the night at the Capitol to finish important legislation.

We had tremendous success this year, passing bills that protect and empower our seniors, workers, voters, members of our immigrant community and more.

Dear Friends,

While summer is often associated with vacations and rest, our Assembly Office has been hard at work in the Capitol and here in our District.

We’ve made encouraging progress in our efforts to bring earned sick leave to all of California’s workers. Assembly Bill 1522, our legislation guaranteeing all California workers can take 3 sick days off a year, was approved by the Assembly and continues to garner momentum as it passes through committees in the State Senate. With your help, we’ll make earned sick days a reality, providing all workers with the opportunity to better care for their health and the health of their loved ones.
