The California Assembly Budget Subcommittee rejected Governor Brown’s attempt to repeal critical elements of the Hayden Law yesterday. Tens of thousands of concerned citizens had contacted their elected officials — Best Friends members alone sent over 47,000 messages — urging them to reject the appeal. The legislators got the message loud and clear.
From here, the attempted repeal goes to the State Senate Budget Subcommittee on April 11 at 2:30 p.m.
We won round one, but the fight to protect this landmark legislation is not over. Please call the following subcommittee members to express your opposition to the governor’s proposed repeal of the Hayden mandate:
Senator Joe Simitian: (916) 651-4011
Senator Jean Fuller: (916) 651-4018
Senator Alan Lowenthal: (916) 651-4027
Thank you once again for your committed support.
