SACRAMENTO – Governor Brown has signed into law a measure by Assemblymember Laura Friedman that addresses increased traffic-related injuries and fatalities and speeds across the state. AB 2363 creates a Task Force to review current methodology when setting speed limits, then to report and recommend to the legislature how fatalities as a result of vehicle related collisions can be reduced to zero.
“Speed and safety have been priorities for me since I first became a resident of Glendale. Speed limits and traffic-related fatalities continue to rise, despite a Master Bicycle Plan and investment in engineering to slow the flow of traffic. This policy will begin to address injuries and fatalities as a result of increased speeds across the state.” –Assemblymember Friedman
(Sacramento) - Working to solve the homeless crisis is a major priority in California. At the State Capitol, leaders like Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D-Glendale) are currently seeking compassionate change. She’s partnering with Assemblymember Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles) to pass AB1971, which would help the gravely disabled have a second chance at life. “In Los Angeles County alone, over 800 homeless individuals died on the streets last year,” says Assemblymember Friedman. “For me, that’s inexcusable. We have to do more to give people in crisis the help that they need.”
