Governor signs four of Yamada’s bills

From page A5 | October 20, 2013 |

Four measures authored by Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, D-Davis, recently were signed by Gov. Jerry Brown.

“I appreciate Governor Brown’s signature on bills that we sent to his desk in support of California’s vulnerable adults and at-risk youth,” Yamada said.

The following bills have been signed into law:

* AB 394, Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders research fund tax check-off: This bill allows the fund’s income tax check-off to remain on the state income tax form for five more years, extending the sunset date from Jan. 1, 2015, to Jan. 1, 2020.

* AB 602, reporting abuse of mentally and developmentally disabled people: This bill requires employees at developmental centers and state hospitals to report serious assault and abuse incidents directly to outside law enforcement agencies within two hours. Prior to this legislation, reports were made only internally within two days and reporting to outside law enforcement was not mandatory.

* AB 776, coordinated care initiative stakeholders: This legislation will ensure that Area Agencies on Aging and Independent Living Centers are included as stakeholders as the Department of Health Care Services begins the process of integrating medical and long-term care services for “dual-eligible” Californians under the terms of the Coordinated Care Initiative.

* AB 1006, sealing juvenile records: This bill will help reformed juvenile offenders start adulthood with a clean slate by standardizing the process for informing juvenile offenders of their right to seal their juvenile records. Courts and probation officers would be required to provide this information when the youth has fulfilled the requirements of the court or probation.

Yamada represents the 4th District, which includes all or portions of Yolo, Solano, Colusa, Lake, Napa and Sonoma counties. She chairs the Committee on Aging and Long-Term Care.
