The CA Legislative Session ended on Sunday night at midnight, and CAW's top 3 priorities (SB 270, AB 1826, and AB 1594) have made it through the legislature.
Now they head to the Governor's desk, and he has until September 30th to sign or veto the bills.
Thank you to all who supported these three bills when they were in the Legislature. You helped get us this far. Please take a few minutes to let Governor Brown know you'd like for him to sign these bills into law!
