This morning, AB 1111 was passed on an A roll call (unanimous support) by the Assembly Appropriations committee, and will go to the Assembly floor.

CWA and our partners and members have now officially progressed further towards the goal of this bill than 2642 did last year. This is new, exciting territory.

To those who have received numerous emails and phone calls on this bill, thank you for your participation. AB 1111 has gone this far because of the input and buy-in of CWA members at the local level. Thank you so much for sharing the vision in a strong workforce that gives access to the people who need it the most.
