(Sacramento) Today, Assemblymember Tom Daly (D-Anaheim) sent a letter to the Board of Admissions and Relations with Schools (BOARS) at the University of California to request computer science be categorized as a math class for admission purposes.
The tech industry in California has seen tremendous growth and it comprises one of the largest and best paying sectors in the entire state. The State Legislature recently passed two bills allowing California students to receive math credit in high school for computer science classes.

I’m proud to report that the Governor signed this bill into law on August 12th. The new law goes into effect starting July 1, 2016.

“Professional service providers who sexually assault their clients during the course of a treatment session are usually charged with a felony,” Daly said. “However, under certain circumstances, California law only allows particular offenders to be charged with misdemeanor sexual battery.
