SACRAMENTO—Yesterday Governor Brown signed AB 2229, one of several bills Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa) has introduced to address the many challenges residents have experienced related to California’s wildfires and the rebuilding process.

“I introduced this bill to require insurance companies to provide more clear and definitive information about available discounts and fire safety programs to policyholders and to incentivize homeowners to better understand and take advantage of any fire safety-related discounts offered by their insurer,” said Wood.

SACRAMENTO–On June 25, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued approval of a new drug, Epidiolex, to treat seizures associated with two severe childhood-onset epilepsies, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome. Epidiolex is the first prescription, plant-derived cannabinoid (CBD) in the category of anti-epileptic drugs and has been approved to treat children two years of age or older.

“That was great news but we discovered a problem that would have prohibited patients from receiving it,” said Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa). “Prior to this bill, any product that contained CBD was considered a Schedule I Controlled Substance under California statute, and because of that doctors wouldn’t be allowed to prescribe it, but AB 710 fixes that.”

SACRAMENTO–Today Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa) cast his vote in support of California’s 2018-19 State Budget. “The budget continues to be a good news, bad news story,” said Wood.

“Here’s the good news. I appreciate the funding we are getting to help people recover from and rebuild after the devastating wildfires last year. We’re getting funding to help backfill property tax and issues related to clean-up and we’re getting money for schools to replace the millions lost when students and their families were displaced.”
