Speaker Karen Bass – People’s Commission Celebrates Achievementsbo

12/14/2009

This past year I’ve had the privilege of serving on CA Assembly Speaker Karen Bass’ People’s Environmental Commission. This year we’ve held budget forums, job fairs, and town halls that have been educational, informative and addressed constituency needs.

We know, and have experienced, an incredibly tough budget year for the State of CA, but there have been a few legislative victories – Healthy Families Program (AB-1422); Federal Energy Efficiency Funding (AB-262), Federal Economic Stimulus: Transportation (AB-X3-20); Education Finance (ACA-X3-2); Public Safety Back on Track Program (AB-750) and Paparazzi Protections (AB-524).

The Commission on the 21st Century Economy was also convened and recommendations submitted for overhauling the CA tax code so the state is not subject to the ‘peaks and valleys’ that it currently experiences.
