SACRAMENTO – The Assembly Appropriations Committee today passed nine powerful bills by Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D- Oakland).
“I’m extremely pleased the Assembly Appropriations Committee sees the value of reforming California’s unjust money bail system,” said Bonta. “Money bail discriminates against the poor and deprives liberty to people who have not been convicted of any crime. The resulting human toll is enormous. People face losing their jobs, homes, cars, and even their children simply because they cannot afford to pay bail,” said Bonta.
