Assembly Bill 6 - Assemblyman Tom Lackey (R-Palmdale).  Driving under the influence of drugs. This bill is necessary to provide law enforcement with the tools they need to do their job. Similar to alcohol breathalyzers, these drug tests take saliva samples which can be administered by officers roadside when they suspect someone could be under the influence of drugs. Within a few minutes, officers are informed whether the driver tested positive for several classifications of drugs including marijuana. ***Stancoinsider strongly supports AB 6.***
Senate Bill 54- Senator Kevin de Leon (D Los Angeles). Giving illegal immigrants immunity. Existing law provides that when there is reason to believe a person is under the influence of a controlled substance and is in this country illegally, law enforcement shall notify the appropriate agency of the United States having charge over deportation. Senate Bill 54 repeals this provision. It replaces it by taking away law enforcements authority or ability to arrest, detain, or investigate any person believed to be here illegally. SB 54 requires that law enforcement, school officials, and security personnel  stay out of immigration matters. They would be barred from acting on immigration status issues. SB 54 creates a state mandated program. SB 54 would take affect immediately as an urgency statute.
StancoInsider strongly opposes SB 54! It gives illegal immigrants an unfair advantage by giving them the power to circumvent laws that American citizens must follow. It grants illegal immigrants privileges not available to US citizens. It is a violation of our consutitutional rights under the 14th Amendment- The Equal Protection Claus.
StancoInsider strongly opposes SB 6! It gives illegal immigrants an unfair advantage over American citizens by providing them with free legal services, through a state and county department that is funded by tax payer money. Legal services for illegal immigrants would therefore be paid for using tax payer money. It grants illegal immigrants privileges not available to US citizens. It is a violation of constitutional rights under the 14th Amendment- The Equal Protection Claus.
Senate Bill 6 - Ben Hueso, (D-San Diego) Requiring the Department of Social Services to supply illegal immigrants with a free attorney. Existing law requires the State Department of Social Services, subject to the availability of funding, to contract with qualified nonprofit legal services organizations to provide legal services to unaccompanied, undocumented minors, as defined, who are transferred to the care and custody of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement and who are present in this state. SB 6 would require the Department of Social Services to award contracts to provide legal services for illegal individuals in deportation proceedings as well.  SB 6 would require the Department of Social Services to prioritize the award of contracts to provide legal services to detained individuals in deportation proceedings and would also authorize the department to prioritize the award of contracts to qualified nonprofit legal services organizations that also receive county or city funding to provide legal services to illegal immigrants. SB 6 would take affect immediately as an urgency statute.
Assembly Bill 729, introduced by Assemblyman Adam Gray (D-Merced). This bill would require a licensing authority to suspend the license for a  violation of engaging in nonmedical marijuana commercial activities with a person under the age of  21. A license may be permanently revoked prior to a 3rd violation when the circumstances warrant that penalty. The bill would require a licensee to post a sign, visible from each public entrance, and a similar sign inside the premises that reads “No Person Under 21 Allowed”. It would also require a recreational marijuana establishment to provide unobstructed physical access to law enforcement with clear windows for visual inspection. The bill would authorize a licensee to refuse to sell marijuana to a person who is unable to produce adequate personal identification showing that he or she is 21 years of age or older.  This bill would prohibit the sale, or distribution of marijuana or marijuana products in a vending machine.

Assembly Bill 985 -The Voter Integrity Act of 2017 was introduced by Assemblyman Travis Allen (R-Huntington Beach). The bill would require that Californians show a valid photo ID before voting at the polls. "Law abiding citizens deserve the protection of their civil rights and the security of knowing that California will no longer turn a blind eye to those who would cheat our system by voting illegally.”

Assembly bill 777 introduced by Assemblyman Matthew Harper (R-Huntington Beach) would increase penalties against people who illegally vote by mail to $10,000.
