The revised version of SB276 passed the Senate this morning on a 28-11 vote. Thank you to Dr. Richard Pan, State Senator and the others who have worked humbly and tirelessly to protect our children. SB276 next heads to the governor, who needs to sign it.
SB276 cleared the Assembly floor this afternoon! Call your Assembly member and thank them! Next, call your senator, because the bill has been amended since the Senate last voted on it, so they need to approve it a second time. And then, call Governor Newsom, who indicated in June that he was willing to sign the bill with the changes that were made to the Assembly version.
SB276 passed out of the Assembly Appropriations Committee on Friday, Aug. 30! It now heads to the Assembly floor! Get those calls in to your legislators. We don’t yet know the date when they will vote, but Assembly members need to hear from you that you support the bill. Head to our Take Action page, or find your Assembly member here.
