(Sacramento) - Assemblyman Jim Wood (D-North Coast) knows how important a
higher education is for California's middle class kids. That's why he's encouraging students to
apply for a Middle Class Scholarship, a program that provides undergraduate students with family
incomes up to $150,000 and a maximum annual household asset amount of $150,000, a scholarship to
attend University of California (UC) or California State University (CSU) campuses. Here's more

Today the Assembly and Senate have agreed to move forward on a package that would create a framework for the medical cannabis industry in California.
Assemblyman Wood said, “This package is the end product of countless hours meeting with stakeholders and extensive negotiations with the Governor’s office. I am thrilled that AB 243, which overcame resistance to its groundbreaking definition of cannabis as an agricultural product, and which focuses specifically on the needs of the north coast, will serve as the foundation of the cultivation language in this year’s cannabis package.”
Today Assemblyman Jim Wood (D-North Coast) presented SB 326 on the Assembly floor. The bill authored by Senator Jim Beall extends the funding for Medical Air Transportation through Jan. 1 2020 and mandate the state develop a reliable funding source beyond that.
Assemblyman Wood said, “Given the extreme access to healthcare issues we face across much of my district, in particular in Del Norte and Trinity Counties, these services are critical.”
