SACRAMENTO - Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) issued the following statement today after the Assembly passed AB 2324, legislation he authored to protect California’s public transit system:
“I am pleased AB 2324 received final approval by the Legislature today. This bill gives law enforcement the tools they need to protect our public transit systems so that Californians know they are safe and secure as they go about their daily routines. The attacks on public transit stations in Europe, as well as the recent attempted attack in New York, clearly underscore the need to ensure that our stations are as secure as possible, and AB 2324 will ensure public safety officials have the tools they need to keep our people safe.”
AB 2324 now goes to the governor’s desk. Click here to view the attached document for more details on the bill.
