The month of July is always a time of celebration – for children to enjoy their summer break playing with friends or staying active in sports and for families to go on vacation or simply spend more quality time together. But most importantly, July is the time for our entire country to join one another and celebrate the day of our nation’s independence. While the Fourth of July is recognized by barbecues, camping, swimming and fireworks, the day is much more symbolic of freedom, opportunity and what it means to be an American.
In addition to the celebration of our nation’s independence, last month I held my 4th Annual, “Taking the World by STORM” Soccer Clinic in Walnut Creek. The STORM Soccer Clinic is my biggest Assembly District 14 event of the year, which is instructed by players of the women’s semi-professional team, the California STORM. At the clinic, Bay Area girls ages 8-16 of all skill levels, are provided with the opportunity to learn how to play the game, lead healthy and active lives, and most important, build meaningful life skills.
As the Legislature reconvened at the beginning of this month, we’re already kicking into high gear. Since the deadline for all bills to be passed by both the Senate and Assembly is August 31st, I would like to provide you with a reminder and updated status on two of my biggest pieces of legislation, Assembly Bill 2293 and Assembly Bill 1147. In addition to these measures, I have exciting news that the Governor has signed two of my 2014 bills, AB 1838 and AB 2560.
Please continue to read and thank you for your on-going support. I hope you’re having a wonderful summer!
