Persons charged with a hit-and-run misdemeanor should not be absolved of the crime simply because a civil compromise has been reached, the Assembly voted today.

A bill designed to extend further assistance to California’s returning veterans passed the Assembly Human Services Committee today.
Current law allows counties to limit general assistance to employable persons to no more than three months within any 12 month timeframe, regardless if those months are consecutive or not.
AB 2311, by Assembly Member Steven Bradford (D-Gardena), would prevent counties from applying that limitation to honorably discharged veterans.
“Recognizing that our returning veterans face unique challenges and obstacles, limiting them to three months of general assistance—regardless if those months are consecutive—is unfair and unwise,” Bradford said. “Veteran homelessness and unemployment are far too high. Cutting them off does not help them or California.”
