Assemblymember Shirley N. Weber (D-San Diego) – fresh off major police reform victories the last legislative session – pushed through two key measures Tuesday through committee on just the state legislature’s second day back from a COVID-19 pandemic break.
The measure is backed by more than 100 labor, civil rights, educational organizations, including the Equal Justice Society, The Education Trust-West, AFSME 3299 and Asian Americans for Affirmative Action. It now moves to the Assembly Appropriations Committee for consideration in the next few weeks.
