EDGE Legislative Update, October 2, 2020
On September 30th, Governor Newsom took final action on all remaining bills that the legislature passed after concluding the 2019-2020 session. Some of the high-profile measures that will be enacted into law are related to racial justice, rental housing, worker protections, college student assistance, and support for small businesses, which are intended to protect and bolster the state’s economic recovery. As we officially conclude this historic and unprecedented legislative year, we know there is much work to be done to address the needs of California’s most underserved populations, including low-income students, adult learners, dislocated workers, and businesses. EDGE remains committed to fighting for policies and investments that will support economic mobility for all Californians as we gear up for the upcoming 2021-2022 budget and legislative cycle.
