Assemblymember O'Donnell Blocks Public Comment- Our Voices Must Be Heard

Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell recently introduced new language in a bill, AB 1316. If this bill passes as written, the charter schools that serve our students will be forever damaged. Patrick O’Donnell is the chair of the California Assembly Education Committee and he has been actively limiting and blocking public comment during his Assembly Committee sessions. His blocking of public comment makes it much harder for us to oppose this bill as it moves through the legislative process.

We have to start to take action NOW by calling and messaging our local Assembly Members to let them know that we are not being given the opportunity to speak during the Assembly Education Committee hearings and that our only option is to contact them and ask them to speak up for us in Opposition of AB 1316. - We have to seriously flood their offices with our calls for the next few weeks.
