Welcome to my new website.
Just a few years ago, it's hard to imagine that California would be where it is today.
We have cut the unemployment rate dramatically. Millions more Californians have health insurance today. Our state that was once drowning in red ink now has multi-billion dollar budget surpluses.
I'm proud that in the State Senate, we have been able to lead on some of the key issues to help people realize the California dream.
Just this past year, we helped 170,000 undocumented children get access to health care. We passed a budget with the most funding for K-12 education in history. And we passed a historic environmental bill that will double the state's Renewable Portfolio Standard and double the energy efficiency of buildings in California.
But we have more work to do. I hope you reach out and tell me what you think – whether you have a suggestion for a new law or you’d like to know my opinion on something. Together, we can move California forward.
