EDGE Legislative Update, April 2022
On April 18th, the Legislature returned from their week-long spring recess and faced a fast-approaching deadline for policy committees to send all fiscal bills to the appropriations committees by April 29th. Thus far, we’ve seen groundbreaking legislation pass several key committees in the areas of student financial aid reform, dual enrollment opportunities, and strengthening workforce development strategies – all intended to support working families, small businesses, underserved students, opportunity youth, adult learners, and to ultimately boost California’s workforce.
EDGE Legislative Update, October 2021
As the Governor’s deadline to take action on pending legislation came to a close on October 10th, all of us at EDGE are excited to see several priority bills chaptered into law! Building upon last year’s efforts to support and uplift working families and bolster California’s economy, the Governor signed critical measures that EDGE has been supportive of throughout the year in the areas of broadband access, expansion of workforce training opportunities, and support services for justice-involved students attending community colleges.
