Catching up with Assemblymember Todd Gloria on GMSD
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The California Legislature has adjourned for the year and a number of new San Diego-centric bills are set to take effect. Assemblymember Todd Gloria was the author behind several of those bills.
Gloria stopped by Good Morning San Diego to talk about the pieces of legislation and a trip he is taking across the border.
• Assembly Bill 262 – this is the bill Assemblymember Gloria authored to correct the mistakes made by local officials during the 2017 Hepatitis A outbreak. It mandates local health officers must make relevant information available to cities during communicable disease outbreaks – i.e, location and concentration of cases. Governor Newsom signed this bill into law earlier this month.
• Assembly Bill 1164 – this bill will dispose of the Downtown San Diego state office building to make way for affordable housing. Currently, the State inefficiently occupies two full city blocks in Downtown. This bill, which was signed into law, will force the State to deal with this property and make way for a more efficient use.
