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.

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.
