State Senator Bill Monning and Assembly member Mark Stone will discuss the November election and issues facing the State at the November 15 luncheon meeting of the Democratic Women of Monterey County.
Senator Monning is the Senate Majority Leader and is a member of the Senate Committees on Budget, Health, Judiciary, Legislative Ethics, Natural Resources and Water, and the Budget Subcommittee #3 on Health and Human Services. He has been a leading advocate for reducing childhood obesity through the reduction of the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages. In 2015, Senator Monning coauthored the End of Life Option Act, providing qualified terminally ill individuals with the option to request a doctor’s prescription for aid-in-dying medication. He has been a long-time supporter of the California Central Coast State Veterans Cemetery, has been active in bringing together stakeholders and developing a strategy to develop the Coastal Trail in the Big Sur area and has worked with state and local agencies to remove the San Clemente Dam. Last year, he introduced Senate Bill 623, to provide short- and long-term drinking water solutions to Californians who lack access to safe and affordable drinking water.
Assemblyman Stone serves as Chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee, which reviews legislation on family law, product and tort liability, immigration, commercial contracts, court and jury procedures, and civil practice. He has written several laws to protect the civil rights of members of the LGBT+ community, sexually exploited youth, and immigrants. On the Human Services Committee, he successfully fought to transform youth group foster homes to provide intensive therapy and services, created a California Earned Income Tax Credit for working families, provided assistance so low-income pregnant women can better prepare for birth, and protected critical benefits for poor families. As an environmental champion, he has worked to curb illegal coastal development, reduce plastic pollution, and clean up drinking water supplies. Assembly member Stone has also written numerous laws to help people released from prison reintegrate into society, including helping juveniles get the mental health services they need.
