Torrance, CA – Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance)’s statement in support of the National School Walkout:

“Enough is enough.  One month since the latest mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, I stand in solidarity with students across the country in calling on Congress to pass common sense gun safety laws like an assault weapon ban and universal background checks.

While California already has among the strongest gun safety laws in the country, we still have much work to do.  I am working with Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) to reintroduce a bill (AB 1014) to allow school employees, coworkers, supervisors and others to petition for gun violence restraining orders. This would allow the courts take away guns from the mentally ill and others who should not possess such dangerous weapons.”

Shared an informative afternoon with The Nature Conservancy, Heal the Bay, LAANE, Friends of Madrona Marsh and Senator Diane Feinstein’s office learning about multi-benefit ecosystem like the Henrietta Basin in Torrance.  In addition to collecting and naturally filtering storm water, the site acts as a haven for birds and native plants, and as a natural classroom for students.  Multi-benefit sites like the Henrietta Basin are excellent examples of how we can use public spaces to address concerns like storm water treatment in sustainable ways while educating the next generation of conservationists and creating much needed habitat in the south bay.

I was honored to be a part of the Grand Opening of the Torrance Aquatic Center. Standing with my former colleagues on the Torrance School Board, the Torrance City Council and Superintendent George Manon we celebrated the culmination of years of hard work. Thank you again to the people of Torrance for voting to make this project possible. From my conversations with parents and student athletes, I know how important this facility will be generations of Tartars, Spartans, Saxons, and Warriors.
