(SACRAMENTO, CA) –Today, Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) and Assemblymember Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova) announced the Governor signed Assembly Bill (AB) 1716, which establishes the Lower American River Conservancy Program with the goal of enhancing and protecting the natural habitat and water conveyance of the American river.

Hello friends,

August 6, 2016 marked the 51st anniversary of President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act.  As the President told Congress then, "the command of the Constitution is plain: it is wrong—deadly wrong—to deny any of your fellow Americans the right to vote in this country."  Unfortunately for our democracy, the last few years have seen a terrible backlash against the right to vote for many citizens.  In 2013, the Supreme Court struck down an essential part of the Voting Rights Act that required states with a history of voting discrimination to get approval for new voting laws from the Department of Justice.  Essentially, this gutted an important protection meant to ensure every citizen the reasonable exercise of their right to vote.
