STATE OF THINGS FOR JUNE 28, 2006 - Legislative update
June 29th 2006 @ 7:41 am

HOW TO MAKE YOUR POSITION KNOWN TO THE LEGISLATORS. A reminder.
There are several ways to impress the legislators with your position on bills.
To get your position listed in Committee analyses:.
1. If you have an organization, send your position on Letterhead stationery.
A-If you know about a bill at least a week before it is heard send it to the Committee
hearing the bill
B- If you are an individual, you can be listed in a group under the heading
16 individual letters in opposition. As an example.
C- Send it by fax = if a bill is being heard in, say, Senate Health Committee on a Tuesday, then send your faxed letter by Thursday afternoon because on Friday they package everything up.
D- If you send your letter by snail mail send it at least 3 or 4 days before that Thursday deadline.
E- Send it by email and indicate your organization also on the same deadline.
2. Send your fax, letter to the specific Committee (committees have no email addresses that they give out.
3. Send your fax, letter or email to the Chair person of the committee, now usually a Democrat, and to the V. Chair person of the committee, usually a Republican.
4. Also send your letter to the author of the bill. Apparently they, too, submit those letters to the committee.
5. Phone calls and emails are important even at the last minute to the individual legislators and to the members of the various committees hearing the bill(s)
________________________________
A BIG VICTORY/
Assembly bill 651, by Assemblymembers Levine and Berg, failed passage in the Senate Judiciary committee, yesterday, 6/27/06, The vote was 2-2 with Bill Morrow not present. Democrat Chairman Joe Dunn crossed over and voted NO thereby saving the day. Claimed he did not know until he heard the testimony how he would vote.
Senator Dunn lost his bid for a cabinet seat in the recent election, plus he is termed out of office this year. He is now not beholden to his Partys support. He is still chairman of the Judiciary and as such remains in a continuing position of importance regarding other bills, (see below).
ACTION: Please call Sen. Dunns office and thank him for his vote cast in opposition to AB 651. He acted very fiscally responsible. Dont mention anything pro life because he is not a pro life supporter.
_______________________________

COMMENTS: This bill was introduced as a companion to the Preschool For All initiative which was defeated in the June 2006 ballot. The primary goal of the initiative is to implement voluntary preschool programs that prepare children for kindergarten and for success in life, available to all four-year-olds whose families choose to enroll them.
ACTION: Contact: Jack Scott, Chmn fax 916/651-324-7543 or, email: senator.scott@sen.ca.gov
Abel Maldonado, V. Chr. fax 916/445-8081. Maldonado, from the Santa Barbara area is rather flaky in his voting. He needs to hear from people who urge him to vote NO.

Sen. George C. Runner (R) [Vice Chair]. www.senator.runner@sen.ca.gov
The legislative analysts report on this bill shows dozens of supportive groups and only three of us groups in opposition plus 6 individual letters. If yours was one of those 6, we thank you.
AB 2470, Mark Ridley-Thomas. Health Care Master Plan.
STATUS: On Senate floor awaiting hearing NOW.. There is time to call your Senator and urge a NO vote. There are many bills on the floor and seldom are all of them heard on the same day.
AB 2742, Pedro Nava, Family Planning. Merging the state Family PACT into the MediCal Program and authorizing Planned Parenthood to be an automatic referral on a fee for service basis. Brings big bucks to PP, moving them directly into a position of authority within the state government.
STATUS: In Senate Health Committee TODAY. See AB 2560 for Senate Health info.
SB 1437, Sheila Kuehl, Discriminatory Content. Requires schools to include sexual preferences and tendencies of historical figures in school texts. Governor has indicated that while he does not disapprove of including sexual preferences in references to historical figures he most likely will veto this bill because of its micro managing of school curriculum by a special interest group.
STATUS: On Assembly floor - third reading. File number 95. (order of action). There is still time to call your Assembly member, especially the Democrats and urge a NO vote.

Parental Notification
A measure that would require parental notification before a girl can have an abortion also qualified for the ballot. The measure is nearly identical to Proposition 73, which voters rejected 53% to 47% in the November 2005 special election (Zapler, San Jose Mercury News, 6/21).
Unlike the 2005 ballot measure, the measure on the 2006 ballot does not define abortion as the termination of “a child conceived, but not yet born.” The current initiative also would require statistics on the number of judicial waivers requested, declined or granted, to be reported based on county, whereas the 2005 initiative would have required such information to be reported for each judge in the state (Wildermuth, San Francisco Chronicle, 6/21).
The measure would require that parents or a legal guardian be notified 48 hours before a girl can have an abortion. Girls who are married, emancipated or are active members of the armed forces would be exempt (San Jose Mercury News, 6/21).
So far, 10 measures have qualified for the November ballot, and several are still awaiting approval before the June 29 deadline (San Francisco Chronicle, 6/21).
________________________________
An Initiative measure to increase the state tobacco tax to fund children’s health insurance and other programs qualified this week for the November ballot, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Supporters of the measure estimate that the $2.60 tax increase would generate $2.1 billion annually to provide:
* $758 million for hospital emergency care;
* $371 million for children’s health insurance;
* $267 million for cancer, heart, asthma and other disease programs;
* $177 million for tobacco prevention and educations; and
* $96.5 million for tobacco-related disease research.

NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Louisiana Democratic Gov. Kathleen Blanco signed into law a ban on most abortions that would be triggered if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns its 1973 ruling legalizing the procedure, a spokesman said on Saturday.

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.
