CALL TO ACTION!
Regrettably, SB 1265 has passed off the Assembly floor on 8-28 and the Senate on 8-29. Please encourage Governor Jerry Brown to veto this terrible bill. The fastest way to accomplish this is to click here to use the ResistBot software, which allows people in the United States to send letters to Congress in under two minutes!
