2020 Legislation

AB 39 uses the existing Local Control Funding Formula and proposes a $35 billion increase above the current funding level.  The new, aspirational funding targets established by AB 39 provide a roadmap for the legislature and the state to follow to first attain the national average and eventually, return to among the top 10 states in per pupil spending.

AB 326 will allow personally owned motorized carrying devices that are connected to a pedestrian via smart phone to be used on city sidewalks.  These devices are designed to follow behind an individual as they walk and are intended to carry heavy loads, which will provide people with increased opportunities to walk and reduce vehicle trips which can help meet our environmental goals.  

AB 345 provides criteria to help guide the Department of Conservation’s Geologic Energy Management Division’s (CalGEM) rulemaking process to protect residents and communities near oil and gas extraction sites.
