Friends,

It has been a very productive month. I am pleased to announce that the Governor successfully signed all of my legislation passed during this year’s legislative session. While I work on a variety of issues throughout the year, I also author legislation to support the people of Riverside County and the Inland Empire. My legislative efforts focused on securing $15 million in ongoing state budget funding to support the UC Riverside School of Medicine, helping veterans highlight and receive credit for their military service skills when applying for state licenses, and creating jobs by encouraging entrepreneurship, small business development, and foreign trade and investments.
