SB 751 would eliminate the limit on reserves for most small school districts and raise it to 10 percent for others
Thursday, October 12, 2017

SACRAMENTO – School districts will have a greater ability to manage their own fiscal affairs under a bill that Gov. Jerry Brown signed today.

The bill, SB 751, jointly authored by Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo and Sen. Steve Glazer, D-Orinda, eliminates the reserve cap for most small school districts and substantially reduces reserve fund obligations for large school districts.

Glazer released this statement:

Sen. Glazer’s provision for oversight of Bay Area transit system included in proposed measure to raise bridge tolls
Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed a measure that will give Bay Area voters a chance to create an independent inspector general for BART to hold the sprawling transit district accountable for its spending, service to riders, and timely delivery of capital projects.

The inspector general was proposed by state Sen. Steve Glazer, D-Orinda, as part of a bill, SB 595, by Sen. Jim Beall (D-San Jose) that will ask voters to raise bridge tolls to fund transportation projects designed to relieve traffic congestion in the bridge corridors.

East Bay Times Columnist Gary Peterson has his take here.

The following are prepared remarks by Sen. Steve Glazer at a Standing Together Interfaith service at Temple Isaiah in Lafayette, CA on August 29, 2017.

Thank you to the Interfaith Community for bringing us together tonight. Thank you to Rabbi Shanks for inviting me to share my thoughts, which I composed this morning at the dining room table.

As a child, when I listened to or read about current events and history, I would often absorb the stories during the day and dream about them at night.

It was a sad day Monday on the Senate floor when I had to adjourn in memory for Jared Tucker, a Lafayette resident who became the lone American killed in the Barcelona, Spain terrorist attack last week. Jared was beloved by many, a father of three girls and proud husband of Heidi. They were in Spain on their honeymoon, a year after they’d been married. Here are my comments from the floor.
