CA Senator Evans will not call for a vote on SB 1193

ASA members like you have scored one last victory in the final hours of this year’s state legislative session. We generated more than 1,000 emails and phone calls in opposition to a badly amended bill in less than one week – and it worked!

In response to that grassroots pressure, Senator Noreen Evans (D-Santa Rosa) will not call for a vote on SB 1193 in the Assembly. That means the bill will not be adopted this year. Well done!

Grassroots action works. Will you make a special contribution to support ASA today, so we can keep winning victories like this?
