With the finalizing of the budget for 2017-18, I have joined with my Assembly colleagues to standup for California’s values of inclusion, responsibility and justice. This budget upholds our commitment to a better California by investing in our senior citizens, middle class families, and students. With a national political conversation focused on blame and generating fear of the other, California can stand proud today proving it is our differences that bring us to together to generate a responsible and forward thinking state budget.
(Sacramento) – The first thing Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes (D-San Bernardino) did when she was sworn into office was author legislation to help the survivors of the December 2, 2015 terrorist attack at the San Bernardino Regional Center. Assembly Bill 44 would help the survivors get the medical treatments they need. Learn how in this Assembly Web Report.
Sacramento – With session going on well into the late night, Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes passed every one of her eligible bills off of the Assembly floor and on to the State Senate successfully. In all, Assemblymember Reyes had her last eight bills heard and voted on by the full Assembly with important legislation which will have a strong impact in the Inland Empire.
With President Trump’s action today, the United States rejects an agreement between 195 countries, and joins Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries that are not participants in the Paris Climate Agreement.
This administration once again demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of one of the biggest dangers facing our nation. Not only is climate change an issue of national security, but areas like the Inland Empire of California face real and measurable negative health consequences due to emissions that are a leading cause of climate change.
Sacramento – Earlier today, AB 1268, the Domestic Violence Education Act, was voted on by the full State Assembly and passed off of the floor with unanimous bi-partisan support and is on its way to the State Senate. The bill creates the California Domestic Violence Prevention Fund for the purpose of encouraging new prevention efforts throughout California.
(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes (D-San Bernardino) authored Assembly Bill 1268 in response to the April 10, 2017 tragedy at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino that claimed the lives of a special needs teacher and a small child that was standing by her as a result of an escalation of domestic violence. AB 1268 would evaluate existing domestic violence programs and policies throughout the state and establish the California Domestic Violence Prevention Fund for the purpose of providing grants to agencies and non-profits to educate communities on domestic violence. “It’s clear to me that we must do more to educate communities about domestic violence, its different forms and the resources available for those who have been or are currently being abused,” said Assemblymember Reyes. Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
Sacramento – Today, AB 523, the Equity in Clean Energy Investment bill, was approved by the full State Assembly and passed to the State Senate.
