Assemblymember Rodriguez Meets Significant Milestone with 2023-2024 Legislative Package

For immediate release:

(SACRAMENTO, CA)—Assemblymember Freddie Rodriguez (D-Pomona) achieved several legislative victories last week, moving key bills in his legislative package through the California State Assembly. Tackling significant issues — including public safety, workers’ rights, mental health, and emergency and disaster preparedness — Assemblymember Rodriguez received support from constituents throughout the 53rd Assembly District and the state.

“As a career first responder and public safety advocate for over 30 years, my legislative priorities reflect a common sense approach to improving the state’s changing landscape of public safety and emergency preparedness, which wouldn’t be possible without my constituents’ feedback, said Assemblymember Freddie Rodriguez. "As I near the end of my term in the State Assembly, I reflect back on my legislative achievements, and none would have been possible without the involvement and support of my constituents who I’ve been honored to serve.”

Here are a few of Assemblymember Rodriguez’s bills that are moving forward to the State Senate:

  • AB 1792 — Emergency Medical Services: Personal Protective Equipment — would require Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA) to establish standards for minimum personal protective equipment for ambulance personnel and update those standards every five years.
  • AB 1809 — Recall and Resentencing — would prohibit an incarcerated person from being eligible for recall and resentencing under the general felony resentencing statute if they were convicted of first-degree murder of a peace officer.
  • AB 1843 — Emergency Ambulance Employee Safety and Preparedness Act — seeks to increase Employee Assistance Program (EAP) counselling sessions from 10 to 20 for employees of private ambulance companies, as well as require peer-to-peer support.
  • AB 2146 — Personal Floatation Devices — would prohibit the sale of personal floatation devices not approved by the United States Coast Guard.
  • AB 2776 — Rebuilding Communities Following Disasters — prioritizes grants to communities that suffered population and business losses following major disasters.
