Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman, District 13

Marriage equality has been a priority and a dream of the LGBT community for decades.  With now 36 states, including the District of Columbia, allowing same-sex marriage, we have momentum on our side. My colleagues and I, here and across the country, will be eagerly anticipating that the Supreme Court will finally lay to rest the question of whether or not loving same-sex couples will continue to be treated as second class citizens.”

Assemblymember Kevin Mullin, District 22

California also has a shockingly high poverty rate. One in four children in California is growing up in poverty. We should resurrect a proposal from last session to strengthen investments in 0-3 early childhood education, and transitional kindergarten for all 4-year-olds.”

Assemblymember Evan Low, District 28

As it so often goes, California is once again leading the nation.  The passage of AB 60 has allowed immigrants who work hard and pay their taxes to now safely drive to work, and take their kids to school.”

Assemblymember Chris Holden, District 41

The time to modernize and build our school facilities is now while the economy is in good shape. Without repairing and updating our schools, we are leaving our children in unsafe classrooms that jeopardize their futures.”

Assemblymember Richard Bloom, District 50

High speed rail won’t just benefit travelers. It has the potential to stimulate economic development across our state, especially in areas such as the Central Valley.”

Assemblymember Ian C. Calderon, District 57

AB 159, the ‘Right to Try’ Act, gives terminally ill patients a chance to try potentially life-saving treatments when all other options have been exhausted. It removes barriers for patients who need to immediately obtain those treatments, and protects physicians, hospitals, and manufacturers from retribution.”
