San Diego legislators want Gov. Newsom to sign high school ethnic studies bill

San Diego legislators and others are calling for Gov. Gavin Newsom to sign a bill that would require ethnic studies for high school students, a bill that has sat on his desk for two weeks.

AB 331 was authored by Assemblyman Jose Medina, D-Riverside, and passed both chambers of the state Legislature at the end of August.
