This year, I have introduced several bills to protect our children and seniors and restore trust in our public officials:
SB 212 strengthens the Juvenile Drug Trafficking & School Yard Act of 1988 by allowing a judge to impose an additional sentence of three, four, or five years in prison for individuals who are convicted of manufacturing or trafficking controlled substances on public or private property within 1,000 feet of a private or public elementary, middle, high school or vocational school. Additionally, the bill adds preschools to the list of protected schools.
SB 648 will protect seniors and their families by strengthening the licensing and financial disclosure requirements for the hundreds of elder-care referral agencies in California.
SB 330 will help end public corruption by strengthening the disclosure requirements of public officials who have a financial interest in a public contract to include situations where their spouse, child, parent, sibling or the spouse of the child, parent, or sibling has a financial interest in any contract under consideration in his or her official capacity. Under current law, any public official who has a direct or indirect financial conflict of interest must disqualify themselves from voting or participating in decisions related to that contract.
If you would like to express your support for these bills or would like assistance on any matter, please contact me or my staff any time!
