FAIRFIELD — Assemblyman Jim Frazier, D-Oakley, introduced Assembly Bill 531 Wednesday, which is passed would allow California military veterans to apply for a driver’s license that identifies them as a veteran.
The objective of the bill is to allow veterans to quickly and easily identify themselves and access their services and benefits using a driver’s license, without having to carry around official discharge papers.
Assemblyman Jim Frazier, D-Solano, introduced his first bill in the California State Assembly recently.
Assembly Bill 287, would require the California Department of Veterans Affairs to annually compile a list of names of eligible Vietnam veterans to be added to the California Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
Did you think could text using a hands-free device, California drivers? That liberty may be short-lived if a proposed new law is approved.
Less than two months after a state law went into effect allowing motorists to compose text messages and emails by voice while on the road, a state legislator has proposed a bill to ban the practice.
What the state Legislature giveth, the Legislature can taketh away.
Just months after lawmakers approved a law allowing California motorists to text while driving if they use hands-free, voice-activated devices, Assemblyman Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) has introduced a bill to outlaw the practice.

It was Gov. Jerry Brown who offered praise to everyone for beating the odds and continuing to make California a great state.
He lauded the Legislature for cutting billions from the state budget, curbing prison spending with realignment and reducing the state's long-term pension liabilities. He continued the accolades to the voters who embraced the new taxes of Proposition 30.
Sacramento, CA - Assemblymember Jim Frazier released the following statement today in response to Governor Edmund G. Brown’s State of the State address:

Like many East County residents’ commute, Jim Frazier’s begins before the sun rises. He leaves his Oakley home around 6 a.m. to represent East County residents in Sacramento as the newly elected state assemblyman of District 11.
“I absolutely love it,” Frazier said. “I can’t wait to get there each morning. I’m so fortunate to work with an amazing staff to serve the people I represent. It’s exciting to meet with people and hear their ideas. It’s always been my dream to serve and help others.”
With the empty former Camping World store behind him, soon to be a new, $13 million sheet metal shop and training center, California public schools chief Tom Torlakson said Thursday that the planned 43,000-square-foot facility in Fairfield signals "a strong economy, a stronger California."
As part of a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off the project, a joint venture of Local 104 of the Sheet Metal Workers union and related industry groups, he said education in the building trades is among the "many honorable pathways to a bright and successful future" for the state's 6.2 million students in public and charter schools. Nearly a third of them drop out of high school, he noted.
Assemblymember Jim Frazier, D-Solano, will participate in the National Day of Service by volunteering at the SPCA of Solano County on Saturday and invites others to join him.
The National Day of Service is a time to honor President Barack Obama's inauguration and commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.'s vision of community service.
