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%

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.

Cites failure to ensure reliable transit and ineffective use of funds
Friday, April 07, 2017

I want to thank Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, Sen. Jim Beall and Gov. Jerry Brown for their hard work in addressing the problem of crumbling roads and aging transportation systems.

My constituents are particularly dependent on good roads and highways and reliable transit systems, so I agree we need additional transportation investments.

State Assemblywoman Catharine Baker is a rare bird: a living, breathing Bay Area Republican elected representative in a sea of Democratic blue.

So at a time when town halls hosted by GOP politicians around the country have become the go-to venue for unleashing fury on the Trump administration and its policies, you would think that a Baker town hall would attract at least a bit of that wrath and protest.

But that was not the case at San Ramon City Hall on Thursday night.
