California Would Join Nearly Half the States in the Country

Sacramento – Assembly Speaker pro Tem Kevin Mullin continues to advocate for 17 year-old primary voting and he is not alone.  Currently, there are 23 states plus the District of Columbia that allow 17 year olds to vote in Presidential primaries, provided they will be 18 by the time of the General Election.

“I find it hard to believe that the state of California is behind 23 other states when it comes to this important issue,” Mullin said. “Studies have shown that voting is habit forming and it is a habit worth encouraging.  If a voter is going to eligible to vote in a General Election, why wouldn’t we want to allow them to also have a say in who they will be voting for in that election?”

Sacramento – Today, Assembly Speaker pro Tem Kevin Mullin introduced AB 214 which would reinstate funding that could be leveraged and utilized to attract private investment for spinal cord injury research grants at California research institutions.

“I am very excited to be working with Roman Reed and many other advocates to restore state funding for the Roman Reed Spinal Cord Injury Research Act,” Mullin stated. “Sadly, efforts to continue this funding stream that expired in 2011 have failed and critical research in this area has suffered. The absence of state funds has limited the programs ability to attract private investment, limiting the work being done.”

California leads the nation in social media finance disclosure

The social media disclose act

Sacramento - Today, Governor Jerry Brown signed the Social Media DISCLOSE Act (AB 2188), another landmark campaign disclosure bill that makes California a national leader in the area of disclosure in online political ads.

"Last year, AB 249 (the DISCLOSE Act) set the standard for campaign finance disclosure for print, television and radio ads, generated for and against state initiatives and candidates," Mullin said. "AB 2188 extends those tough requirements to social media, giving voters the ability to see the top three funders of political ads on the various social media platforms."
