Governor Newsom Signs Assemblymember Chris Holden’s Landmark Legislative Bills

For immediate release:

Sacramento, CA – This month, Assemblymember Chris Holden’s landmark legislation was signed into law by Governor Newsom. The bills include: AB 43 – Greenhouse gas emissions: building materials: credit trading platform and compliance system, AB 323 – Planning and land use: parcels: changes in use, AB 1244 – Private Security Services and Private Investigators: qualified managers, and AB 368 – College and Career Access Pathways partnerships.

“With these policies put into action, we are one step closer to a safer, more equitable, and more lucrative California. This rollout of legislation was aimed at creating a better future for our state and I am pleased to know that my colleagues and Governor Newsom saw these bills as a vital part of the plan to get us there,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden.

AB 43 would express the intent of the Legislature to enact an Embodied Carbon Trading System within the program created by AB 2446, or the Low Carbon Product Standard (LCPS), to facilitate a credit-trading platform for building materials.

AB 323 would protect homeownership pathways for low-income families.

AB 1244 would require a qualified manager under the Private Investigator Act and the Private Security Services Act to hold a current and valid qualified manager’s certificate issued by the director, and would require the director to issue a qualified manager’s certificate to a person who meets the requirements of the act, as applicable. 

AB 368 would provide a pathway for more high school graduates to attend college.

“I am grateful for my team and all of the supporters on the ground who missed days of work striking or flew to Sacramento to spend days lobbying the halls of the Capitol to making sure that we are continuously moving forward. There is more to be done and we are getting ready now to go at it again next year,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden.
