AB 413 has been approved at each stage of the legislative process and only needs to have it’s amendments approved by the house of origin before moving to Governor Newsom’s desk for signature. Since it’s introduction, AB 413 has added Assembly Members Santiago, Smith, Weber, and Kalra as co-authors along with Senator Bradford.
AB 413 was sponsored by SIATech and the Los Angeles County Office of Education. This year’s Policy Forum will feature California’s success with the bill and offer a session that describes how education leaders in other states can provide similar transformations in their statutes. The “Rising From At Risk to At Promise – Lessons From California’s Advocacy” session will be offered by RAPSA Executive Director Ernie Silva, JD, LACOE lobbyist Pam Gibbs, JD; and Assembly Member Jones-Sawyer’s Legislative Fellow Erika Ngo (invited).
