SACRAMENTO – Today, newly elected Assemblyman Josh Hoover (R-Folsom) introduced his first package of bills to help restore the California Promise and provide real solutions to some of our state’s most pressing issues including public safety, education, and housing.
“It’s time to set partisanship aside and work together to solve California’s greatest challenges,” Hoover said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Legislature to restore accountability in our criminal justice system, make our communities safer, improve the academic outcomes of our students, and make life more affordable for the people we represent.”
Assemblyman Hoover’s legislative package includes bills to:
- Restore pre-Proposition 47 penalties for serial petty theft crimes that are harming retailers and small businesses.
- Give parents more control over their child’s education by reducing barriers for students looking to transfer out of underperforming schools.
- Expand and stabilize career technical education (CTE) by increasing funding to ensure students have access to meaningful and diverse career pathways.
- Prohibit homeless encampments within 500 feet of schools.
- Incentivize housing production by providing a property tax bonus to cities and counties that approve projects and increase the supply of housing in their communities.
Assemblyman Josh Hoover represents the 7th Assembly District in Sacramento County, which includes the cities of Citrus Heights, Folsom, and Rancho Cordova and the unincorporated communities of Carmichael, Fair Oaks, Foothill Farms, Gold River, Mather, McClellan Park, North Highlands, Orangevale, and Rosemont.
