Once in awhile there are rainbows. Yesterday, the CA State Senate passed a bill to allow our undocumented brothers and sisters the right to obtain student loans from the state to attend California universities. Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) authored SB 1210, which would initially allocate $9.2 million in public funds for such loans. Also, SB 935 just passed. This bill would increase the minimum wage, on and after January 1, 2015, to not less than $11 per hour, on and after January 1, 2016, to not less than $12 per hour, and on and after January 1, 2017, to not less than $13 per hour. Both measures now go to the state assembly.
