Legislation is aimed at improving transportation for low income students, increasing after-school food access, and raising awareness about human trafficking
Sacramento, Calif. – Assemblymember Campos has kicked off the New Year by introducing legislation to help improve the lives of low-income youth by enhancing their transportation options for school and providing those in after-school programs with adequate meals.
AB 1572 will require that school districts designate a liaison to implement a plan developed in consultation with specified stakeholders to ensure that all Title 1 students receive free transportation in a timely manner.
Efforts will include enhancing penalties for liquor license violations, raising human trafficking awareness, and increasing funding for law enforcement.

Governor Brown Signs Assembly Bill to Extend Parental Leave for Certified Educational Employees
Sacramento, Calif. – Assembly Bill 375, by Nora Campos, was signed into law by Governor Brown this afternoon. AB 375 would expand the existing right of differential pay to include paid parental leave for teachers and other certificated employees. Currently, mothers only get six to eight weeks of maternity leave when having a child, after which they are allowed to take up to twelve weeks unpaid leave. AB 375 allows teachers to use differential pay during the current unpaid twelve week period. Differential pay is the difference between the certified employee’s salary and the cost of their substitute. While differential pay is not enough to live off of, it will provide new parents a cushion and a level of comfort while they adjust to parenthood.
(Sacramento) - “Women should be paid the same as men, for the same work,” says Assemblymember Nora Campos (D-San Jose). That’s why she authored Assembly Bill 1017, the Gender Pay Equity Act, which removes past salary history from the hiring process, making sure that the history of low pay is not used as justification for continuing to underpay women. “In California today, mothers are the primary or sole breadwinners in nearly 40 percent of families,” says Assemblymember Campos. “And married mothers are the primary or co-breadwinners in nearly two-thirds of families.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
