It’s graduation time and unfortunately the events that our college and high school students, 8th graders, kindergarteners and many others have been eagerly working toward all year have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and that includes canceling traditional graduations and grad nights, school dances and other large gatherings. These events and ceremonies are the focal point of the school year and of a student’s academic career.
Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron issued the following response to Gov. Gavin Newsom's revised budget proposal:
"The best way to fix this budget crisis is by helping people get back to work safely.

National emergencies bring out the best in us as Americans always step up to help those in need. During this coronavirus pandemic, individuals, non-profit organizations, and businesses are answering the call for help.
These times can be overwhelming. While we love our homes, being forced to stay there for extended periods causes stress, anxiety, and depression. We are worried about our income, our jobs, our kid's education, our health, our future.
