Senate vote

Action #1 – “YES” on AB 893 – Stop gun shows at the Del Mar Fairgrounds

AB893 AB 893 – “22nd District Agricultural Association: firearm and ammunition sales at the Del Mar Fairgrounds” would, on and after January 1, 2021, prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition at the Del Mar Fairgrounds property located in the 22nd District Agricultural Association, as specified, and would thereby make a violation of that prohibition a misdemeanor. The bill would exclude from its provisions a gun buyback event held by a law enforcement agency. (Assemblymember Gloria)

Action #2 – “YES” on AB 201 – “YES” on requiring funder information on all  political text messages

AB 201Vote YES on AB 201, the Text DISCLOSE Act which requires text message ads to disclose who paid for them. (Cervantes-Mullin)

Minimal script for your State Senator: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Senator [___] to vote “YES” on both AB 893 and AB 201. It’s time for stop our public property to be used for gun shows and it’s also time that funding for all political messages, from whatever media, is no longer a secret from voters.

Fri- 6/14: Et tu, Gavin? Tell the Gov. to read SB-276 – it just stops fake vaccine exemptions. Then ask Assemblymember Limón to vote it through the Health Committee.

Medical exemptions have more than tripled since the passage of SB 277. Some schools are reporting that more than 20 percent of their students have a medical exemption. It is clear that a small number of physicians are monetizing their exemption-granting authority and profiting from the sale of medical exemptions.” – Pediatrician & State Sen. Dr. Richard Pan.

Action – YES on SB-276. Nudge Newson, make the call to Assembly Member Limón on the Health Committee.

We’re concerned that Governor Newsom has been so busy that he hasn’t had a chance to read SB-276Immunization: medical exemptions. (Jessica Biel, who still isn’t a real doctor, hasn’t read the bill carefully either.) Three years ago, CA passed SB 277, a bill which eliminated “personal belief” exemptions, and vaccinations reached the 95% level necessary to provide herd immunity for kids who are immunocompromised or are too young. Now all that is at risk again because of doctors who sell fake medical exemptions to parents. SB 276 is aimed at tracking doctors who create an inordinant amount of exemptions, who may not have even seen the child, or who use reasons for exemptions don’t follow CDC guidelines.

On June 20th, Assembly Member Monique Limón will be part of the Assembly Health Committee which will vote on this action. (Other members listed below) Go ahead and call your representative whether or not they’re on this committee.

Minimal script for your Assembly Member: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Assembly Member [___] to vote “YES” on SB-276. Children should be able to go to school without fear of preventable disease. Continue reading “Fri- 6/14: Et tu, Gavin? Tell the Gov. to read SB-276 – it just stops fake vaccine exemptions.
