“Nothing is more fundamental to a strong democracy than ensuring people have access to voting free from unnecessary barriers. We’ve seen voter participation plummet in recent years as our voting system has fallen behind the times, but the New Motor Voter Act allows us the opportunity to streamline and modernize the registration process for millions of eligible voters who haven’t been a part of our voting system.”

“The compromise signed by the Governor today will have many positive impacts across the state. Releasing a substantial portion of the redevelopment bond proceeds for their intended projects, including funding for affordable housing and parks, will generate thousands of jobs and create hundreds of millions of dollars in statewide economic activity, as well as millions of dollars in state and local tax revenues."

“The Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act will usher in a new era for California.  If the Governor signs the act, patients will have more assurances that their products are safe; law enforcement will have a foundation to identify drugged drivers and increased funding to protect the public; the environment will be protected from neglect, destruction, and water diversion; and the medical marijuana industry itself will be able to come out of the shadows and receive the same protections under the law as other state-licensed businesses, creating jobs and contributing to the economy.”

“[Assembly Bill 1375] is a step forward in bringing equity for those defendants unable to pay their criminal fines outright due to financial struggles. It will also relieve the burden on the taxpayers since the cost of incarceration is substantially more than the value of the fines imposed on an individual.” http://asmdc.org/members/a15/news-room/press-releases/assemblymember-tony-thurmond-s-first-bill-signed-into-law

“The gender pay gap not only affects women, it also causes problems for our entire society. This legislation is an important step toward ensuring a stable future for California families. I’d like to thank my fellow legislators for their support in delivering this bill to the Governor for his signature.” http://asmdc.org/members/a04/news-room/press-releases/assemblymember-dodd-s-gender-pay-equity-bill-heads-to-governor

“When the PPIC report came out last year showing that half of California’s children live in poverty or near poverty, I was moved to act. That motivation pushed the Assembly to include the $380 million state Earned Income Tax Credit in the budget for 2 million workers. Struggling Californians looking for work will be aided by the $263 million we provided for a comprehensive package of child-care services.” http://asmdc.org/speaker/news-room/press-releases/speaker-atkins-poverty-drought-climate-change-action-highlight-productive-legislative-session

"With so many families living on the brink of financial survival, we cannot continue to force millions of hard working Americans to choose between paying their bills and seeking medical care when they're sick. We must be better as a country, and President Obama is keeping us on track to get there.”

“An important part of a university education is networking and gaining skills that will help students start their careers after graduation.  Work-study programs can provide these opportunities. At the same time, these programs can help students reduce their loan burdens. AB 206 helps ensure that DREAM Act students can benefit from the same access to work-study programs as other eligible students.”

“As one of the countless victims of identity theft, I am concerned by the growing number of these Hacker-for-Hire websites that encourage people to commit cybercrimes. AB 195 seeks to ensure that the services being advertised are legitimate by making it a crime to assist in the solicitation of a hacker for illegal activities.”
