Last month, I wrapped up my first legislative session representing AD 9. It was an exciting and busy first year, carefully examining and voting on thousands of bills. I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to write or call my office with input on legislation. While we may not always agree on a particular issue, I sincerely value and appreciate your feedback.
In my first year in the Assembly, my colleagues and I championed a $380 million state Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) that will help over 2 million Californians. We increased funding to Cal WORKS Housing Support Program to help families transition from homelessness and we made additional investments in early childhood education and higher education.
Additionally, several of my bills have been signed into law by the Governor. Please visit my website for a full list of my legislation. I will also be sending out a legislative summary later this month.
I hope you can join me for my upcoming Senior Scam Stopper Workshop. Come learn how to protect yourself from fraud and discuss related legislation. Experts will provide fraud information relating to home and auto repair, telecommunications, identity theft, Medicare and more. Seniors, their families and caregivers are welcome to attend this FREE seminar.
When: Monday, October 19 from 1-3 pm
Where: Lodi Memorial Hospital, Classrooms A & B, 975 S. Fairmont Ave., Lodi
