As Chair of the BOE Legislative Committee, and former Speaker pro Tempore of the State Assembly, I understand the importance of legislation to actively better the lives of Californians. I have authored, sponsored, or taken positions on hundreds of varying pieces of legislation over the past decade, and am proud to serve the taxpayers by continuing to be engaged in the legislative process. The bills listed on this page are important to me, and you can follow the positions I have taken. You can also track how active I am as some of these bills continue to move through the legislative process.

As I have learned over my last several years of serving the people of California, some of the best policy ideas come from constituents like you. Your experiences and ideas are significant in paving the way for change and progress. If you have any ideas or issues you feel would make a great bill, please email my legislative team:

Kasey O'Connor, my Deputy Director of Legislative, Regulatory & Public Affairs
