As your State Assemblymember, I am working with local health authorities, school districts and other entities to ensure that all are responding together to prevent and address risks associated with coronavirus. And I will quickly let you know if the situation changes.
Current advice is similar to preparing for other viruses:
Sacramento, CA – Assembly Bill 91, authored by Assemblywoman Autumn R. Burke, Chair of the Assembly Committee on Revenue and Taxation, was signed into law on Monday, July 1, 2019. Officially called the Loophole Closure and Small Business and Working Families Tax Relief Act of 2019, AB 91 will provide additional support for our state's neediest families by dramatically expanding the California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC).
Sacramento, CA – Today, Governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation requiring out-of-state and online retailers like eBay, Etsy or Amazon to collect sales taxes like local brick and mortar California businesses, eliminating the out-of-state and online unfair advantage.
Sacramento, CA – Senator Mike McGuire, Chair of the Senate Committee on Governance and Finance and Assemblywoman Autumn Burke, Chair of the Assembly Committee on Revenue and Taxation, announced plans today to work together and implement the recent United States Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. This decision authorizes states to begin collecting sales and use tax from online and out-of-state retailers without a physical presence in California.
Sacramento, CA – We politely asked Crisis Pregnancy Centers to lie less and that didn’t work, so I guess we are going to have to be a little less polite about it.
As a mother and a legislator I’m proud of California’s history of guaranteeing a woman’s right to her reproductive choices and access to a basic level of health care, but that right is an empty promise if she lacks the ability to obtain care and services, or if the provider she’s trusting to care for her doesn’t provide information about all of her health care options.
