9/11/17. Walnut Creek, Ca.  While Tropical Storm (formerly hurricane) Irma is battering the state of Florida with floods and destruction, the California legislature is in the midst of its own Tsunami during the last week of moving bills through committee

Bills previously held in suspense files, some with 5 to 7 amendments, are now in final reading and some have been sent to enrollment. This means that the bills have passed appropriations hearings, received, mostly unanimous votes of approval and sent to the Governor’s desk. The Governor has approximately 12 days in which to sign or veto or let bills pass without signature.

These are bills that the media never talks about nor will the legislators in their district hearings  because their, the bill’s,  intent is too inimical to the family, to morals to the ability of students to get a good, solid academic education. These bills are more destructive of the structure of marriage, health, education workforce development, etc. than all the hurricanes or tornadoes have ever been. Buildings can be rebuilt. Land can dry out. But families continue to suffer through bad legislation designed to  experiment with our lives interfere in the community, family, religious, workplace, healthcare and schools.

Here is an example of bills affecting the family and social interchanges:
Call your assembly member’s district office to vote “NO” on or before September 15.

AB841, Shirley Weber, (D) Pupil Nutrition: food and Beverages: Advertising. The legislature has been trying for a long time to gain greater authority over the food industry with some limited success, in setting standards for what people can and should eat.

They are mandating that schools (including Charters) may not buy or provide certain food items to school children on campuses in which that particular industry does not comply with the legislators and the cadre of nutritionists demand for health, workforce quality future workers.

In other words they are attempting to control the grocery and food manufacturing industries through placing restrictions on what your children may be allowed to eat.

This bill was amended 7 times, received unanimous support from 17 non-profit community type organizations and was opposed by 17 grocery industry and related labor groups.

AB10, Cristina Garcia, (D) and eight (8) Democrat Co-authors. Feminine Hygiene Products: Public School Restrooms.  The legislators are always bragging about the high quality of education in California.. This bill will require our tax dollars to purchase these products for the free use of students.

This is a Planned Parenthood and 40 associates bill. CRLC is the only opposition.

CRLC believes that this has more to do with gathering data on menstrual periods than concern for feminine hygiene.  Here is an excerpt from our OPPOSE letter.

AB 10 could well be amended to include free contraceptive products in female bathrooms and free condom distribution in male bathrooms.  Or these products could be made available for both student bathrooms in the future.

CRLC must oppose AB 10 as bad public policy, an unnecessary burden on the taxpayer, and one that presupposes that government must act as caretaker for young women.

Here is an official summary of the bill’s intent:
This bill requires a public school maintaining any combination of grades 6 to grade 12, inclusive, that meets the 40-percent pupil poverty threshold required to operate a federal Title I school-wide program, to stock at least 50 percent of the school’s restrooms with feminine hygiene products at all times and to provide those products at no charge.

AB 23, Sebastian Ridley-Thomas, (D), and two co-authors, Joel Anderson, (R) and Holly Mitchell. Educational Programs: Single Gender Schools and Classes. Amended 5 times (they keep manipulating the words to make them acceptable)

California has been pushing for Charter Schools for some time. A whole new industry has grown up to provide expensive guidance and curricula material to schools. These same groups have also been urging the development of STEM schools – Science, technology, economics and Math.

There has also been the creation of experimental single gender schools, meaning schools for only males or female students. However, the legislators have “discovered” that these Public/Charter/single sex schools could be in violation of California’s gender equality laws as well as the federal title lX laws and so they are attempting to disallow the creation of 3 schools in the Los Angeles school district by attacking one school, in particular, with this bill – YOKA school (Young Oak Kim middle school). The other two schools are Boys Leadership Academy (BALA) and Girls leadership academy (GALA.

And, to add insult to injury the Sacramento Bee reports that Bernie Sanders [is] Coming Back to California This week in time for the California Nurses Association to put on a big conference on Health Care for All.  Who’s the Governor here now, Sanders or Brown?

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
