I am proud to announce that my legislation, the Children’s Dental Health Bill (AB 667), which will expand the use of fluoride varnish in public health and school settings, was signed into law by Governor Schwarzenegger. I introduced this bill because I was astonished to learn that more than 50 percent of California’s children suffer the effects of tooth decay by the time they enter Kindergarten.
I hope you are enjoying springtime in San Diego. It has been a busy time for me in Sacramento, as I have been developing my first legislative package and promoting my bills through the committee process and, just recently, on the floor of the Assembly. I want to update you on some key bills that you may find important in our district, give you an update on some recent and upcoming events, and introduce you to my Capitol staff. As always, I welcome your involvement and encourage you to contact me with suggestions and concerns.
Welcome to the first edition of my e-newsletter! First, I want to thank you for the trust you have placed in me to represent the 78th District in these challenging times. It is both an honor and a privilege to serve you and to address the many issues facing our District and our State.
