AB 1930 Ensures that CSU and UC engage stakeholders before implementing admissions requirements that could disparately impact students of color
AB 1835 Annually, requires LEAs to identify unspent Supplemental and Concentration funds (in LCFF) and keep those fund’s designation to be spent on low-income, foster, or EL students.
ACA 5 If passed, allows the repeal of Prop. 209 to go to the November ballot for CA voters.
SB 1130 Helps build out broadband connections to rural and low income communities using the CASF program (digital divide)
Prop 13 Closes commercial property tax loopholes
and puts $12 billion dollars per year back into schools and communities
