"I want to see our veterans thrive when using their educational benefits. It is absolutely unacceptable that some schools put more money into recruitment than they put into their curriculum. It is my hope that this legislation will provide a path for our veterans to succeed in their educational aspirations."
Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla, District 14
“It is imperative that all school employees clearly understand their responsibilities as mandated reporters to ensure that once abuse or suspected abuse has occurred, it is stopped or prevented immediately. This bill does just that and reinforces the required steps that must be taken to increase student safety and maintain a trusting school environment.”
Assemblymember Mark Stone, District29
“For formerly incarcerated people, what happens during the first few weeks after being released from prison often determines whether they will be productive and independent or go back to prison. Providing a valid ID card is a simple step that can make all the difference in accessing healthcare, a job and a place to live.”
Assemblymember Chris Holden, District 41
“It is well known that universities are offering more remedial education than ever, and that college students are taking longer to graduate, accruing more student loan debt. Numerous studies show that concurrent enrollment programs decrease the time that students take to graduate, increase student confidence, increase average GPAs, and increase the likelihood of graduation from college.
Assemblymember Freddy Rodriguez, District 52
“California’s employers are struggling to find workers who are adequately prepared for jobs that must be filled now. Earn and learn training programs are a win-win for both the job-seeker who needs to make a living as well as the employer who needs an adequately trained workforce. We need to address this workforce shortage now.”
