Wednesday, September 13 2017

Sacramento, CA – On the heels of Governor Brown signing into law three of freshman Senator Josh Newman’s (D-Fullerton) measures, two more measures now head to the Governor’s desk for signature. Senate Bills (SB) 52 and 442 both passed out of the Senate today.

“I’m really encouraged to see that my colleagues in the Assembly and Senate believe in straightforward, common sense reforms,” said Newman. “These measures reflect the kind of pragmatic policy I came to office to create. I encourage the Governor to sign these reforms expeditiously for the people of my district and the State.”

The measures deal with issues of local infrastructure and public health respectively. Senate Bill 52 will relinquish a portion of State Route 39 to the City of Anaheim for the purposes of revitalization, read the full text here. Senate Bill 442 updates the 20 year old Swimming Pool Safety Act to greatly reduce residential pool drownings in California, read the full text here.
