Call your State Assembly Member for a "Yes" on AB 685!
Call today Monday, August 27, and early Tuesday, the 28th to ask your Assembly Member for a “Yes” Vote on AB 685.
First: Identify yourself by name and where you live.
Second: In 2009, it was great to have bi-partisan support on AB 1242, the first version of AB 685, that Gov. Schwarzenegger vetoed. We need that bi-partisan support again now to be sure Gov. Brown will sign AB 685.
Third: Why is your call necessary?
AB 685 was first voted on by the full Assembly on June 1, 2011 and passed to the Senate. On August 25, 2011, the Senate Appropriations Committee put it on the “suspense file” for no action. Just this August 21st, after considerable grassroots effort, Senate Appropriations voted 5-2 to send it to the Senate floor where it passed on basically a party-line vote 22-16. These have been narrow and hard-fought victories.
Please call today, Monday, and tomorrow, Tuesday, and be part of the Assembly victory.
