Every year, the Legislature celebrates the contributions to society made by remarkable women throughout our state by honoring a “Woman of the Year” from each Senate and Assembly district. Traditionally, a formal ceremony is held in the Capitol. Due to COVID-19, the in-person ceremony was postponed.
This Joint Statement Was Issued by Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D – Lakewood), Assemblymember Tom Daly (D – Anaheim), Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D – Glendale), Assemblymember Cottie Petrie-Norris (D – Laguna Beach) and Assemblymember Luz Rivas (D – Arleta).
Yesterday, Assemblymembers Laura Friedman (D-Glendale) and Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) made a first stab at codifying some of the recommendations made by a task force studying California’s speed limit law.
Friedman warns that the bill is “a work in progress,” likely to be amended during the legislative process. Certainly the first steps it calls for are small ones: for now, A.B. 2121 would simply extend the period of time between required traffic speed surveys, under certain conditions.
