SACRAMENTO–Today Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr., signed SB 901, a bill that will boost the state’s vegetation and forest management, increase requirements for utility infrastructure and protect ratepayers and utility workers. In addition, he signed 28 other wildfire-related bills including three authored by Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa).

SACRAMENTO—On Friday, Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr., signed AB 1953 by Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa) which requires owners of long-term care facilities to report more information on how they use related-party businesses in their operations.

Following an attempted closure of three skilled nursing facilities in Eureka by the owner Brius Healthcare, and the potential displacement of more than 100 residents, Wood worked with Humboldt community members and Senator Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg) to successfully prevent two of those closures.

SACRAMENTO—Two bills authored by Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa) intended to address the opioid crisis – AB 2760 and AB 2789 – have been signed by Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr.

Last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that, “on average, 115 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose.” Overdoses from prescription opioids are a driving factor in the 16-year increase in opioid overdose deaths and California emergency rooms treat one overdose every 45 minutes.

“If we had a plane crash every day where 120 people onboard lost their lives, the federal government would be hitting the alarm button and doing everything possible to stop that from ever happening again,” said Wood.

SACRAMENTO—Today, after an intense period of discussion, debate and negotiation, the Conference Committee passed its report responding to the many issues posed by the recent devastating wildfires. “We’ve lost 58 people to wildfires in the past two years and thousands of homes,” said Wood. “This is not a situation where we can celebrate a win. Lives were lost and homes were destroyed. These wildfires were a wake-up call that demanded our full commitment and attention to protect the victims and minimize the impact future fires can and will have on our communities.”

SACRAMENTO—This is a statement from Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa):

“As a member of the Wildfire Preparedness and Response Legislative Conference Committee, I won’t support a “solution” that doesn’t include, quite frankly, what’s in the title of this committee – and that’s prevention and response. We’ve lost 58 people to wildfires in the past two years. What more of a wake-up call do we need?
