9-17-19.  SB 323 ALERT! This costly and needless bill passed the California legislature receiving the bare minimum of votes necessary to clear the Assembly. But the fight is not over. Last year a similar bill was vetoed by then Governor Brown and now is the time to make your voices heard again by Governor Newsom. Click Here to send message directly to the Governor urging him to veto this ill-conceived bill. VETO SB-323!

Thank you for your help to STOP SB 323. If you have any questions, you can contact us at [email protected]
