We love our animals and we love advocating for them in Sacramento!
Just like humans, pets get sick too and sometimes need blood transfusions. Currently there is an effort to address our state’s shortage of animal blood products while making sure doggy donors get to go home after helping the cause. It’s time we allow for more loving and humane treatments for animal blood donors.

The wording in California’s animal welfare laws is also outdated and doesn’t express our empathy for animals. I was proud to support a bill to update that language to reflect our compassion toward animals. Now words like “destroy” will be replaced with “humanely euthanize” and “pound” with “animal shelter.”

City of Lancaster to Host Community Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Event
Encouraging Residents to See and Be Seen in Honor of Pedestrian Safety Month

BicyclistsIn honor of Pedestrian Safety Month, the City of Lancaster will join the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), UC Berkeley SafeTREC, and California Walks to engage residents through a community Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Training (CPBST) on Thursday, September 26. As California and the rest of the country grapples with how to address the rising number of pedestrian injuries and fatalities – Lancaster seeks to create a safer and more pedestrian and cyclist-friendly city.

Through research conducted as part of the See and Be Seen campaign, the City of Lancaster has identified that 60% of all pedestrian and bicycle injury collisions inside city limits between 2013 and 2017 occurred within a 3-mile radius of Monte Vista Elementary. Therefore, the CPBST will be focused on this community and include the following three components:

Part 1 4-5 p.m.
Walking/Biking Assessments

Participants take part in a walking/biking assessment of nearby streets.

Part 2 5-6 p.m.
6 E's Educational Activity

Participants then take part in an activity to discuss the 6 E's and how they relate to observations made during the walking/biking assessments.

Part 3 6-7 p.m.
Table Talks Activity

In smaller groups, participants reconvene to plan for infrastructure projects, community programs, and actionable next steps for their community.

Wilk's SCV Water Agency legislation clears the Assembly
SACRAMENTO - Senator Scott Wilk, representing the 21st Senate District, announces the Assembly has approved Senate Bill 387 (SB 387), follow-up legislation to SB 634 (Wilk), which created the Santa Clarita Valley regional water district in 2017.

"This measure will save taxpayers money by streamlining how Board vacancies are to be handled," said Wilk. "SCV Water is off to a great start. It has already saved ratepayers five million dollars in its first year of operation and will be a role model for any new water agencies - which is why it is important to get this right. I am grateful to my colleagues for their support."

SB 634, which created the regional water district in 2017, requires the board to reduce its membership total from 15 to nine. SB 387 addresses technical issues regarding the consolidation of multiple Boards of Directors when there is a vacancy on the Board. Rather than holding costly special elections, the board would have the authority to eliminate a vacant position at the Agency, if the seat is already required to be consolidated.
