SACRAMENTO, CA – Assembly Bill 480, authored by Assemblymember Ian Calderon, was signed into law this week by Governor Brown. The measure includes, in the definition of a service contract, a written contract for the performance of services relating to the maintenance, replacement or repairs of optical products.
Service contracts, also called extended warranties or maintenance agreements, are offered to consumers by the manufacturer of a product or a third party licensed to sell service contracts on behalf of the manufacturer. Current law defines “ service contract” as a contract in writing to perform services relating to the maintenance, replacement, or repair of an electronic set or appliance, and their accessories; furniture; jewelry; lawn and garden equipment; power tools; fitness equipment; telephone equipment; small kitchen appliances and tools; or home health care products.

"It brings me great joy and pride to honor such exemplary women," stated Assemblymember Calderon. "Each of the honorees has made significant contributions in her community and deserves a special tribute for her dedication and commitment to improving the lives of residents in the 57th Assembly District."

SACRAMENTO, CA – This week, the State Legislature passed Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR) 62, a measure authored by Assemblymember Ian Calderon that designates a portion of State Highway Route 72 as the Detectives Mike Lane and John Pierce Memorial Highway.
“The memorial highway honors Detectives Mike Lane and John Pierce and their unwavering commitment to protecting our community,” stated Assemblymember Ian Calderon. “I was honored to author ACR 62 in the name of these two heroes so that their legacy lives on.”
SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblymember Ian Calderon’s legislation, AB 508 on wage garnishment for homeless veterans, was signed into law this week.
“Wage garnishment to collect unpaid fines makes it more difficult for these veterans to escape the cycle of homelessness and ensures that further citations for the same type of offenses will continue to occur,” stated Assemblymember Ian Calderon. “By making it harder for homeless veterans to save money to end their homelessness, such garnishments paradoxically also increase the likelihood that the public safety offenses the tickets are meant to dissuade will in fact occur.”
(Norwalk, CA) - California is taking the lead once again. This time, the Golden State is pioneering implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act.

California State Assemblymember Ian Calderon (D-Whittier) spoke recently at a Covered California forum at Cerritos College in Norwalk. Watch Assembly Calderon's speech in this Assembly Access Video.
