Last year, I authored a bill that required cities who want state housing funding to eliminate "pocket vetoes" that block housing projects. This is a real test case.

The cost of college extends far beyond tuition & students need all the help they can get. That's why I am excited our bill is on the Governor's desk. It provides emergency grants to students who face unforeseen financial hardships.

"After 20 minutes of visiting with residents, Carson emerged to tell reporters that he had no concrete proposals to share, and no promises of new federal funding for handling homelessness."

As Trump visits two exclusive CA cities today & exploits homelessness for his base, let’s remember he: 🚫Discriminated against tenants & wants to weaken fair housing act 🚫Cut heat & hot water to force his tenants out 🚫Pushed to eliminate funds that build affordable housing

If Governor Newsom signs , California would be the first state in the country to allow for the chartering of local public banks, a historic victory for economic democracy over Wall Street banks.

Assembly sends AB857 by and to the governor. It would allow local governments in California to form public banks.
