Legislative Priorities

  •  AB 2884 (Berman) would expand the use of restricted lottery funds to include funding for students’ basic needs.

  • SB 777 (Rubio) would require, contingent upon funding, a district with less than 75% of its hours of credit instruction taught by full-time instructors to make, at a minimum, an annual 5% reduction in the district’s deficit, defined as the gap between 75% of the total district credit hours taught and the total of those taught by full-time faculty.
