SACRAMENTO - Assemblymembers Evan Low (D-Silicon Valley) and Ian
Calderon (D-Whittier) today launched the California Legislative
Technology and Innovation Caucus. The Caucus comprises a bipartisan
and bicameral group of Assemblymembers and Senators who view this
as a statewide effort to ensure that California remains the global
leader in technology and innovation.
SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblymember Ian Calderon (D–Whittier) issued the following statement regarding the veto of Assembly Bill (AB) 159 – the Right To Try Act:
"It's disappointing that Governor Brown couldn't see the need to allow Californians the right to fight to save their own lives. Both Democrats and Republicans wanted this for our California’s terminally ill. But, unfortunately the Governor chose giving the FDA more time as his reasoning for a veto. Time is the one thing our terminally ill don't have. I wish he would have given terminally ill Californians the hope of having more time to spend with their families by allowing them expedited access to potentially life-saving drugs".
SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblymember Ian Calderon today announced that his bill which expands the definition of physical invasion of privacy to include drone operations was signed into law by Governor Brown. Assembly Bill (AB) 856 closes a loophole in existing law to clarify that it is trespassing for paparazzi to fly a drone over private property.
“Last August, I co-chaired a Joint Oversight Hearing of the Assembly Committees on Arts, Entertainment, Sports, Tourism and Internet Media; Judiciary, and; Select Committee on Privacy, to explore drones in our future and privacy considerations,” stated Assemblymember Ian Calderon. “At that hearing we learned that the paparazzi have used drones for years to invade the privacy and capture pictures of public persons in their most private of activities – despite existing law.”
(Sacramento) – Bands played, choirs sang, confetti rained down and a huge crowd cheered as the three men from Sacramento who stopped an attack on a train in France last month were honored with a parade that concluded with a massive rally on the steps of the State Capitol. Assemblymember Ian Calderon (D-Whittier) joined State Assembly Speaker Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) and a host of other lawmakers as they praised the three childhood friends - U.S. Airman Spencer Stone, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler – for their bravery and courage. "To save their lives and everybody else on that train is truly heroic. They represent the best of all that America and the State of California and the City of Sacramento has to offer," said Assemblymember Calderon. Here's more from the Hometown Heroes Parade in this Assembly Access video.
(Sacramento) – When a person passes away, what happens to their email and social media accounts? It’s a question California State Assemblymember Ian Calderon (D-Whittier) addresses with Assembly Bill 691. Once enacted, AB 691 will establish guidelines for probate courts, online service providers and estate administrators when dealing with the online assets of a deceased person. AB 691 also puts power in the hands of the owner of those accounts if they indicate their wishes prior to their death. Watch this Assembly Web Report to learn more about AB 691 and how it may affect you.
SACRAMENTO, CA – Assembly Bill 332, a measure authored by Assemblymember Ian Calderon which would create the Long-Term Care Insurance Task Force and find sustainable options for long-term care insurance, was approved on the Assembly Floor today and is headed to the Governor’s desk.
“It’s time we take a serious look at building a robust long-term care insurance system in California,” stated Assemblymember Ian Calderon. “We currently do not have a viable option for middle class seniors and persons with disabilities to obtain affordable care, and a Long-Term Care Insurance Task Force would be the first step towards addressing the needs of one of the most vulnerable populations in our state.”
By 2030, the number of Californians age 65 and older is projected to increase to almost 9 million, or about 18% of the state’s population. Recent public opinion research shows over 60 percent of working adults fear they will not be able to afford long-term care and health care costs during their golden years.
