Six Seyarto Bills Sent to Senate

This week will mark the end of the first half of the 2022 legislative session.
 
I am very pleased to announce that six bills from my legislative package have passed out of the State Assembly and are now headed to the Senate.

They cover a variety of important topics, including Veteran benefits, government reform, privacy, education, victim resources, and emergency services.
 

  • AB 1633: Creates a pathway for the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) systems to share the contact information of student Veterans, with the student’s permission, with the California Veterans Administration (CalVet) to help further connect them with their well-deserved benefits.
     
  • AB 1687: Clarifies that the governor’s use of emergency powers must be related to the emergency conditions.
     
  • AB 1711: Holds government agencies to the same data breach reporting requirements as contractors and private entities to ensure the best notification practices to the public.
     
  • AB 1876: Allows three years of substitute teaching in one or more California school districts that participate in a consortium to count towards the eligibility requirements for the Emergency Career Substitute Permit.
     
  • AB 1968: Instructs the CSU and UC campuses to standardize content on their websites so victims of sexual assault can quickly and easily find the necessary resources immediately following an incident.
     
  • AB 2270: Addresses the need for emergency vehicles to use high occupancy vehicle (HOV) and high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes when returning from emergency calls.
     

All of these bills passed with no opposition and bipartisan support.
 
It is my privilege to work together with my colleagues in Sacramento to accomplish some of our goals and deliver results.
 
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to serve you.
