Frazier: The Delta region is held hostage by Southern California special interests

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay), co-chair of the Legislature’s Delta Caucus, spoke out in frustration when his bill to increase local representation on the Delta Stewardship Council (DSC) died in a committee hearing after Southern California water special interests lobbied against it.

The DSC consists of seven voting members; only one of these represents the Delta. Frazier’s AB 1194 would have added four voting members from the Delta region to the Council.

“Time and again, the voices of my Delta neighbors have been silenced or dismissed,” said Frazier, presenting AB 1194 to the Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee. “The interests of Southern California water agencies have been totally prioritized, while the goal of protecting the Delta’s ecosystem has been ignored and diminished, even violated.”

Death of autistic boy after being restrained by staff at El Dorado Hills special needs school prompts Frazier bill

AB1172 requires greater oversight of nonpublic schools

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay) has introduced a bill to better protect special needs students at nonpublic schools by expanding local and state oversight of these schools.

Frazier, chair of the Assembly Select Committee on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, is authoring AB 1172 in response to the November 2018 death of a 13-year-old autistic student after he was improperly restrained by staff at a nonpublic school in El Dorado Hills.

“This boy’s death was a tragedy that should never have happened,” Frazier said. “These schools serve the most vulnerable members of our society. An investigation revealed this school routinely employed practices and procedures that were incorrect and exposed students to severe harm. AB 1172 will help ensure that local education authorities and the state are able to more closely monitor these nonpublic schools and enable early intervention if problems develop.”
