Sen. Glazer Remarks on CalPERS Investment Bill

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Without the leadership of Gov. Jerry Brown, California would not have made the much-needed advances in curbing pension deficits that we've made in recent years. But, this proposal to borrow $6 billion and transfer it to Cal-PERS was rushed through the Senate without adequate study. The Senate approved it on a 24-13-3 vote. The non-partisan legislative analyst said it was not clear whether this idea would save the state money or whether it was even legal. It may in the end prove to be a good idea. But there was no need to pass it without adequate review.

LIVE TODAY AT 1:30PM: Select Committee on Student Success Hearing

Sacramento, CA – Senate Bill 562, the proposal to create a single-payer health care system for California, has the best of intentions.

But I could not support it today because it was premature.

The Affordable Care Act is still the law of the land and it is working. Even with its flaws, the ACA has cut the rate of uninsured in half in California and brought health coverage to millions of people who were without it.

As long as that law remains in effect, we should fight to preserve it, defend it and improve it.

Senators Glazer and Hill co-author legislation to increase cap for reserve funds from 6% to 17%
Tuesday, May 09, 2017

Sacramento, CA – Local school districts would have more flexibility in managing their own money during economic downturns under legislation approved on Monday by the Senate.

Senate Bill 751, approved on a 38-0 vote, was co-authored by Sen. Steve Glazer, D-Orinda, and Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo. It would lift the local school district reserve cap from 6 percent to 17 percent, a nationally recognized standard for local government agency reserves. The bill now moves to the Assembly.
