SACRAMENTO – The wildfires that have ravaged the 27th Senate District and so many other areas of California haven’t just taken lives, destroyed tens of thousands of homes, and burned millions upon millions of acres of land.  They’ve also driven the cost of homeowner’s insurance through the roof or, in some cases, made insurance nearly impossible to get.

SACRAMENTO – As a record number of voters in California and across the nation prepare to cast vote-by-mail (VBM) ballots in the November 3, 2020, General Election, the amount of mis-information about people’s VBM rights also appears to be at an all-time high.  Putting an end to that misinformation – and prosecuting people who intentionally attempt to suppress the rights of VBM voters – is the goal of SB 739 (Stern), which has been signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom and will take effect immediately.
