We just temporarily recessed the regular session of the California Legislature to focus exclusively on Coronavirus for the moment.
Prior to gaveling down, we appropriated a $1.1 billion surge fund for new hospital beds, lifesaving equipment and help for healthcare, childcare and senior in-home support workers. We also built a safety net for shuttered schools and the families and workers who rely on them. We also passed Legislation to help implement Governor Newsom’s Education Order which will increase protective equipment, supplies, and cleaning for schools, and ensure districts will not lose expected revenue over Coronavirus-related closures.
