SAN JOSE--Nora Campos can talk as tough as anyone in state politics, but the Assembly speaker pro tempore got a little choked up Sunday afternoon at a dedication ceremony for a state historic landmark that had become something of a personal mission for her.
"Today I feel very accomplished," Campos said outside McDonnell Hall, a humble building where the late Cesar Chavez once worked with Campos' parents on social and community issues in East San Jose. "The first thing that I needed to do today was thank my parents, Eloy and Rosa Campos."
Please join Assembly Speaker pro Tempore Nora Campos for the dedication of McDonnell Hall as a state historical landmark.

AB 543 will allow non-English-speaking residents to participate in CEQA
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – My bill to help lead to the translation of key CEQA documents was given its final approval Monday by the Assembly.
AB 543 establishes a framework for requiring foreign language translation of key CEQA notices and document summaries regarding the environmental impact of projects and development projects in communities with a significant number of non-English speaking residents.
New construction, infill projects, and other proposed developments can have a major impact on a community. They can impact the look, feel, character, and perhaps most importantly, the environmental health of an area. They can create traffic problems, potentially cause air, water, and noise pollution and impact many other aspects of everyday life for residents and workers.
AB 2016 provides age-appropriate curriculum for grades K through 12
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A bill to help children protect themselves from sexual predators was approved by the Assembly on Monday.
AB 2016, known as Erin’s Law, authorizes age-appropriate curriculum for grades K through 12 on sexual abuse prevention.
“This bill is necessary because our children need to be protected,” said Assembly Speaker pro Tem Nora Campos, D-San Jose, the author of AB 2016. “We want to teach children how to say NO to a sexual predator and to not be afraid to report someone. Teaching this in school is the best way to reach many children who otherwise may not know how to protect themselves.”
