Legislative Update 12.20.17

Colleagues;

The challenges involved with successfully running legislation often go beyond the policy inherent with the bill itself.

Our author, Assemblymember Matt Dababneh, is resigning from the legislature over recurrent charges of sexual harassment.

When the news of the charges became public, your legislative team immediately began exploring different options.  We are presently discussing the bill with three other authors from different parts of the state.  Each brings certain strengths to the equation.

We anticipate that we will have information on a new author at the beginning of the year.
