What Members Are Saying

Speaker Toni Atkins, District 78
“Small businesses are so important to California’s economy that we need to be creative in helping these job-creators start and succeed.” 

Assemblymember Rob Bonta,
District 18

“California must lead the way in understanding and improving opportunities for boys and young men of color. The success of our state and nation is inextricably tied to the success of this growing population.”

Assemblymember Richard Gordon, District 24
“The Affordable Care Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of health status. However, many patient groups see their medications which treat their specific condition on the highest-cost tier. These discriminatory benefit designs cannot remain.”

Assemblymember Roger Hernández, District 48
“District-based elections benefit voters by ensuring that every community is represented on their city council. This in turn, makes an equitable distribution of resources more likely. Every voter will know which council member they can petition and hold accountable.”

Assemblymember Jose Medina, District 61
“There are stark disparities in the funding at the most diverse UC campuses; with the highest minority enrollment campuses receiving the least amount of funding. UC Riverside is recognized as serving the most minority students, along with UC Merced, UC Santa Barbara and UC Santa Cruz. It is important to find a fairer way to distribute funding within the UC system.”

Assemblymember Shirley Weber, District 79
“This abusive practice of last-minute scheduling hobbles workers who are taking the initiative to support themselves, and requires taxpayer subsidy in the form of greater need for public assistance for those who cannot. These workers need scheduling far enough in advance to work those other jobs, to arrange childcare and transportation, and to pursue education and training.”
