AB 1557 – AB 1912 – AJR 33
Sacramento – The California Assembly today gave overwhelming, bi-partisan approval to three bills authored by Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena). The three include legislation to give veterans a stronger voice in college leadership, ensure the legacy of President Obama is included in school textbooks, and a resolution to honor unsung heroes of the Vietnam War.
AB 1557 gives veterans permanent seats on the Board of Governors of the California Community College system by adding a student member who is a veteran or current member of the military. The bill also requires one of the existing 12 board seats to be held by a member or former member of the Armed Forces who has demonstrated expertise and leadership in the field of veterans’ affairs.
