February 24, 2016ABX2-1
Assembly Member Tony Thurmond
Senator Edward Hernandez
Floor Vote expected next Monday February 29, 2016 (Assembly Floor at about 12 noon and Senate Floor at about 2 pm). This is one of the last steps to achieve legislation that would begin to build a path forward and away from collapse. For over a year thousands of advocates just like you have kept a close dialogue with their representatives to #KeepThePromise of the California Lanterman Act, let's finish strong.
Please, call your Senate and Assembly representatives and ask them to support the two bill package of ABX2-1 and SBX2-2. As we acknowledged earlier, the agreement doesn't achieve everything needed, but it is a critically important step to provide relief and recovery.
