"California has the nation's highest number of veterans, nearly 2 million, yet at least 1 million remain unaccounted for. This bill [AB 1637] will assist County Veteran Service Officers in outreach efforts so that veterans know what their rights are, what their benefits are and what services they may be eligible for."

“I am pleased that we are one step closer to ensuring that residents in our nursing homes are in a safe and secure environment. When a concern is raised about a resident at risk, we must act swiftly to investigate the matter in order to improve our state’s commitment to providing quality care to those who are among our most vulnerable population.”

"Young people are our greatest resource. Unfortunately, too many of our policies—from education to criminal justice—disproportionately punish young men of color. We need to do everything we can to empower these individuals to reach their fullest potential. I am pleased that the White House has taken the initiative on this issue, and I look forward to sharing what we have learned in California to help make this national program successful."

“Due to the slow recovery of our economy, our seniors are in great need of special assistance and support. I am urging Congress to restore the critical funding needed to continue the senior nutrition program. Empowering seniors to stay healthy and eat well is essential to their health and well-being. Eliminating meals to homebound elderly should never happen.”

“With turnout rates in special elections reaching all-time lows, I think we are overdue for a fresh look at our state’s election procedures. Research indicates that the vote-by-mail system boosts turnout in special elections while saving taxpayer money.”

“Children with college savings accounts are seven-times more likely to attend college. Our legislation will increase the number of families saving for college and also increase the amount of money they set aside for higher education.”

“As the dynamics of the modern family change, so does a mother’s ability to take care of sick children or hers own self when she falls ill at the same time she’s trying to hold down her job. Our economy has moved to a place where families cannot rely on a stay-at-home parent in times of illness. As a state, California must adapt to the reality facing today’s working families.”

“While UAVs [Unmanned Aerial Vehicles] can be valuable tools in search and rescue, disaster mapping, and even commercial package delivery as Amazon.com is considering, we must take steps to ensure that reasonable restrictions are in place to protect Californians’ right to privacy.”

“It is very crucial and of the utmost importance that Californians have access to health-care cost data across the state. In recent years, the cost of health care has risen significantly and many families do not have the expertise or knowledge on the cost of any health procedure.”
