SACRAMENTO – On Tuesday, the Legislature passed Assembly Bill 1516, a measure by Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D-Glendale) that will make homes and communities more resilient to wildfires. 

            During 2017 and 2018 California experienced the largest fires ever recorded in its history. In 2017, over 1.3 million acres burned in high-severity wildfires and over 10,000 structures were destroyed. In 2018, over 1.8 million acres burned and over 22,700 structures were destroyed. Over one hundred Californians have died from wildfires over the last two years. The legislation was inspired by the findings of firefighting experts after investigating the sites where these wildfires had hit the hardest.

SACRAMENTO – On Friday, animal welfare advocates and opponents of the fur trade won a significant victory as landmark legislation banning fur in California passed a key vote in the Senate Appropriations Committee.  The measure, Assembly Bill 44, by Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D-Glendale), would implement a statewide prohibition on the sale and manufacture of new fur products in California.  If successful, it would make California the first state in the nation to ban fur.
