Governor Signs SB 892 For Annual Proclamation of the Lunar New Year

I applaud Governor Brown for signing SB 892, which I co-authored. An annual proclamation of the Lunar New Year encourages schools to participate in the holiday’s traditions and discuss the accomplishments of API Californians across our state. It’s a great way to promote cultural understanding and inclusivity to our children.

I'm proud to honor Bijan Sartipi, who recently retired from CalTrans after more than three decades at the agency. Since 2002, he had been Director of District 4, overseeing many of the Bay Area's biggest transportation projects. In San Francisco, that included the $1.1B Presidio Project which opened in July 2015, replacing Doyle Drive. With his parents present, Bijan (far right) accepted the Assembly resolution thanking him for his leadership and service. We wish him all the best in retirement.
