AB 66 in the now amended version is written by the state senator Lena Gonzalez (D, LB-SE L.A. County) together with the senators Maria Elena Durazo (D, Los Angeles) and Scott Wiener (D, SF). Co-authors of the meeting include Lorena Gonzalez, Gipson, Arambula, Boerner, Horvath, Choi, Chu, Diep, Eduardo Garcia, Lackey, Mathis, McCarty, Patterson, Robert Rivas, Rodriguez, Blanca Rubio and Voepel.

On August 7, AB 66 is expected to receive its first (and so far only) hearing in the Senate's Public Security Committee. Senator Nancy Skinner (D, Berkeley) chairs the meeting. Its deputy chair is Senator John Moorlach (R, Irvine). Other members of the committee (majority are Democrats) include Senators Steven Bradford, Hannah-Beth Jackson, Holly J. Mitchell, Mike Morrell and Scott Wiener.

Should, according to what you observed in Long Beach from May 31st to June 1st, your councilor vote to register the city of LB as support for AB 66, or reject it unless it has been changed, or reject it directly … or do not take a position?
