Last week, AB 1066 passed the California Assembly. The bill is now awaiting action by Governor Jerry Brown. Western Growers and other industry and business community partners have been urging Gov. Brown to veto the legislation and have created a website that allows farmers to easily share data on the potential impacts of the bill on their farmworkers.
Although the governor has until September 30 to sign or veto the bill, he can take action at any time. We are asking our members to visit this website now and submit your data to Governor Brown for his consideration. This is our last opportunity to stop AB 1066 from becoming law.
Use this website to submit your data.
