SACRAMENTO—One week after California’s state bar leader declared a “crisis” in legal education due in part to a decline in student applicants, a first-year lawmaker has introduced legislation endorsing the creation of a new law school at UC Riverside.
Assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes, D-Corona, said her bill, AB 951, offers the state a chance to study the possible economic benefits of opening a public law school in one of California’s fastest-growing regions.
SACRAMENTO — Today, Calif. Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Corona) introduced a bill to help military families. The bill, Assembly Bill 226, would require the state Commission on Teacher Credentialing to give priority to applicants who are spouses of active United States Military service members.
“Military families sacrifice so much on our behalf,” Assemblymember Cervantes said. “We must do whatever we can to support military families while their loved ones are deployed abroad protecting our Nation and our cherished freedoms.”
The California State Legislature convened today with state senators and Assembly members taking the oath of office.
Those being sworn in for the first time include two members of the Inland Assembly delegation – Democrats Sabrina Cervantes of Eastvale and Eloise Reyes of Grand Terrace. Reyes posted a photo of herself and husband Frank with Gov. Jerry Brown on her Facebook page.
