Thank you to everyone who attended my April 26 Budget Town Hall to give input or share ideas about the state’s next fiscal plan. Hearings will continue next month in Sacramento, where you’ll have more opportunities to weigh in.

My next in-person event is my annual bike safety fair, a perfect opportunity to celebrate Bike Safety Month, which is observed every May. As in years past, it will be held outside. This time, McCoppin Elementary is hosting!

Curious how your state tax dollars are spent? Want to give input on your priorities? As Chair of the Assembly Budget Committee, I will share important updates on the state budget and discuss current budget goals and proposals. I welcome your input and will be available to answer any questions you may have.

With Earth Day approaching, it’s time to once again reflect on what we can do to save the Earth. Perhaps we can switch to a refillable water bottle instead of buying water in single-use plastic beverage containers, which are made with petroleum and often end up as litter. We can also take public transit, walk or bike to places to cut back on greenhouse gas emissions.

I’m excited to announce that $14 million in Stop AAPI Hate grants have been distributed to 80 organizations throughout California to combat the rising number of attacks targeting members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. I joined leaders and nonprofits at the Jackie Chan Senior Center today to celebrate the announcement.

Winter is over and the sun is starting to shine; so come and join me for the following events this spring/early summer. Please RSVP for events you wish to attend and plan to wear a mask at indoor events.

As we head into spring, Omicron cases have been trending downward. Still, to minimize the spread of the virus, we need to encourage people to stay home when they or a family member contract COVID.

As we emerge from the pandemic and reopen our doors, I want to invite you to my first in-person Town Hall since 2019. This will be an outdoor event. I look forward to coming together with you to share my legislative priorities, describe the new laws that have gone into effect and hear your input on California’s future. As Chair of the California State Assembly Budget Committee, I also want to share how the Legislature and Governor are planning to spend the over $20 billion surplus.

Saturday, March 5
10 – 11:30 a.m.

Going to college can be expensive for many families in California. Making higher education more affordable has been one of my priorities in the Legislature. That’s why I’m excited to see the upcoming launch of the Californians for All College Corps.

CalEITC

It’s CalEITC Awareness Week! This week highlights the California Earned Income Tax Credit program, which could provide a sizeable tax refund to millions of individuals and families in our state.

Covered CA Deadline

If you need health insurance, now is the time to sign up. Covered California is offering affordable policies as low as $10 a month or less. The deadline is Monday, January 31.

The effects of COVID-19 continue to hurt many families. Up until recently, only rent relief has been available for California tenants. Now, help is here for homeowners too.

It’s heartbreaking to hear stories from mothers like Loren Lieb, who tried to sue the gun industry for a 1999 day care shooting that traumatized her young son. And because of a federal law that gives near immunity to firearms manufacturers and dealers, her civil lawsuit did not get far in U.S. courts.
