A Recent Survey Finds More Californians Would Utilize PFL If They Knew it Existed
Assemblymember Tom Daly (D – Anaheim) is seeking additional funding for public education and outreach for California’s Paid Family Leave Program (PFL). The program, which is administered by the state Employment Development Department (EDD), provides vital financial assistance to Californians who need to take time off from work to bond with a newborn child or care for a sick family member.
PFL provides up to six weeks of partial wage replacement to workers who participate in the State Disability Insurance program. However, a Field Poll released in January found that only 36% of California voters were aware of the program’s existence. According to Daly, “These results indicate that working families need to be informed of its existence.”

Assemblymember Tom Daly (D – Anaheim) will be withdrawing his measure, Assembly Bill 2712, prior to final consideration by the State Legislature, because the goals of the bill have been met. This decision comes after a groundbreaking agreement between the Orange County Water District and the Orange County Business Council to work together on crafting a new strategy for cleaning up contaminated groundwater in the county.
Daly’s bill required the Water District to collaborate with the Business Council, as well as with other state and local water agencies, to establish a clear set of guidelines for cleanup of contaminated sites.
The California Transportation Commission recently approved $3.3 million in Active Transportation Program funding for six projects in the City of Santa Ana.
“Congratulations to the City of Santa Ana on securing this competitive grant funding. I applaud the City’s effort to achieve a more bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly community. These projects will result in improved safety and accessibility.”
The City of Santa Ana has been awarded $1,030,800 grant to develop a half-acre park at Memory Lane and the Santa Ana River, adjacent to the Vista Del Rio Housing Project.
The grant was funded under the Housing Related Parks Program, a state grant program that funds the construction of new parks and recreation projects benefitting the community. Specifically, the program awards funding on a per-bedroom basis for residential units providing housing for very low to low-income households. A total of $25 million was available this funding cycle statewide.
"I congratulate the City of Santa Ana in securing this very competitive grant," said Assemblymember Tom Daly. "Santa Ana is a young, vibrant city with a growing population. I look forward to this exciting project and others that will bring much needed additional park space to the community."
The City plans to develop the undeveloped half-acre property to accommodate a bike rest area. The new park will feature drinking fountains, bike racks, equestrian hitching station, play equipment and shelter, exercise equipment, drought tolerant landscaping, river rock bio-swale, security lighting, decomposed granite walkway and other site amenities.
