Last month, I wrapped up my fourth legislative session representing Assembly District 9. It was an exciting and busy year and 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.
I am proud of the work that my colleagues and I have accomplished since 2014. We have made great progress, increasing investments in education, health, human services, transportation and so much more. We quadrupled our State’s Rainy Day Fund which now has $8.5 billion saved away. The Legislative Analyst’s Office (LAO) projects this to increase to almost $13 billion by 2018.
Additionally, the Governor signed several of my bills into law this year including, Assembly Bill (AB) 2769, the Personal Information Protection Act. AB 2769 will help protect your personal information from your driver’s license or identification card from being collected, stored, or shared when your driver’s license or ID is scanned or swiped for age verification purposes. With so many data breaches, it is more important than ever that we protect our personal information and safeguard access to your data. I’d like to thank the Governor and my colleagues in the Legislature for recognizing how important it is to protect our data.
Assemblymember, 9th District
