It is an honor to represent the 24th District in the California State Assembly.
While Congress and the Trump Administration remain mired in gridlock, I’m proud of the real work we have done for Californians in the State Assembly. In 2017, we passed landmark legislation to address California’s severe housing crisis, repair our crumbling transportation infrastructure, and extend our world-leading Cap and Trade program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Governor Brown signed eleven of my bills in 2017, including establishing California’s Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights and extending the Planning for Sea-Level Rise Database.
As Chair of the Assembly Elections and Redistricting Committee, I’ve led efforts to protect our voting systems from outside interference and supported campaign finance reforms including the Disclose Act.
As a champion of public education, I’m leading the effort to restore the promise of an accessible, affordable, high quality public higher education to every California student who qualifies.
I’m also heading up the efforts to ensure a fair and complete census count. Congressional representation and billions of dollars in federal funding are at stake. While the Trump administration puts up more obstacles to achieving an accurate count of all of our residents, regardless of immigration status, California will conduct a historic outreach campaign to encourage all residents to participate in the 2020 Census.
There is more work to do, which is why I humbly ask for your support.
