AB 1846 Hearing May 11

AB 1846 (Lopez), a bill that would increase the Adult Education Block Grant by $250 million, goes to a hearing in the Assembly Appropriations Committee this coming Wednesday, May 11 at 9:00 AM in Room 4202 in the Capitol Building in Sacramento.  The merits of this bill as to its financial impact will be heard at this time.  It is likely to be placed in a suspense file, like any bill with a cost of $150,000 or more.  There will be a suspense hearing later in the month, and if the bill passes out of that hearing it will go to the assembly floor.

Supporters of adult education are needed to attend this hearing and voice their support for the bill.  It is particularly important for adult school students to attend and ask legislators to support the bill. It may not be possible for attendees to state more than their name and organization and their support for the bill, but it is important that legislators see that the bill has a lot of support.

The Chair of the Appropriations Committee is Assembly Member Lorena Gonzalez.  Her address is State Capitol, P.O. Box 942849 and her phone number is (916) 319-2080.
