"Every step of the way, our members supported this important bill with thousands of letters to elected officials urging its passage," said Patty Scripter, Director of Legislation for the California State PTA.  "It's a real testament to the power of the PTA voice."

California State PTA acknowledges Assembly Member Mike Eng for his leadership on this issue and commends the Governor for signing this legislation.  We would also like to thank our nearly 1 million members who made their voices heard by writing letters and taking other action to support this bill.
