A federal judge’s recent decision to overturn California’s
the long-standing ban on assault weapons overturns not only years of state law, but undermines the awareness that assault weapons are used in mass shootings, and not for hunting or personal safety.
State Attorney General Rob Bonta announced that the state is appealing the federal court ruling.

THREE BILLS SPONSORED BY OUR OFFICE RECENTLY PASSED IN THEIR RESPECTIVE HOUSES
They move one step closer to turning into law.

Senate Bill 215 will create a new victim portal in California’s existing rape kit tracking system. This will allow survivors of sexual assault to anonymously and electronically track and receive updates regarding status, location, and information regarding their sexual assault evidence kit. This bill is co-sponsored by the Joyful Heart Foundation, Natasha’s Justice Project, and authored by Senator Connie Leyva. 

Senate Bill 23 will extend the statute of limitations for victims of “revenge porn,” or those that discovered their private intimate images have been released without their consent. The statute would extend to one year after the discovery of the images, giving more time to seek charges against the perpetrators. The bill is co-sponsored by the California District Attorneys Association and authored by Senator Susan Rubio. 

Assembly Bill 364 will help better protect all workers coming to California on a temporary worker visa as this bill changes the qualifications for the Foreign Labor Contractors to protect vulnerable workers potentially be labor trafficked.
California’s Labor Commission and law enforcement need tools like those provided in this bill, which will help identify and prevent labor trafficking in our state. The bill is co-sponsored with CAST-LA and the San Diego’s DA’s Office and authored by Assemblymember Freddie Rodriguez.
