Assemblymember Bonta Reviews His Six Major Pieces of Legislation
(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Oakland) is taking stock of his major legislative accomplishments halfway into the 12 years he can serve in the California Legislature. There are six bills which he has authored that he is particularly proud to have become law. Among the six is the TRUTH Act to stand up for, defend, and protect our immigrant neighbors. It was signed into law in 2016. This law requires that immigrants be informed of their rights before speaking with ICE; mandates that local law enforcement hold a public forum to discuss their immigration policies and all ICE related data must be subject to the Public Records Act.
