As we come to the official close of the 2023 legislative session with Governor Newsom’s decisions, I want to share the wins we had during my first year as State Senator. I made a commitment to fight for the people of Burbank, San Fernando Valley and California, and our work so far reflects that mission. Our work was focused on increasing access to quality mental health services, protecting and expanding programs that lift up the most vulnerable Californians, and advancing equitable policies for our youth so they can be successful now and throughout their futures.
