Thank you to everyone who responded so quickly to our Action Alert on AB 614 (Rubio). Unfortunately, SB 614 (Rubio) has been made into a 2 year bill! This means the bill will not be heard in the Assembly Education Committee next week, Wednesday, July 10, 2019. This decision was not made lightly. In light of the strong opposition organized against the bill and concerns identified by the Chairperson of the Assembly Education Committee and committee staff, it was decided to make SB 614 a 2 year bill. Senator Rubio, author of the bill, also was pushing to make her bill a 2 year bill.
In light of this decision, this bill will not be heard in committee next week Wednesday, July 10th and the bill will not proceed through the legislative process this year. Letters are not needed. We will continue to work with the author on amendments to hopefully move the bill in the next legislative session. Again we appreciate your quick response to signing letters supporting the AB 614. Stay tuned.
