Legislation by Assemblymember Frazier Will Help Improve the Lives of California Veterans

Sacramento, CA – Assembly Bill 935, authored by Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D – Oakley), was signed into law by Governor Brown over the weekend. Beginning Veterans Day of 2015, this legislation will allow a veteran to apply for a California driver’s license or identification card with a designation that clearly identifies the individual as a veteran. 

“California is home to the nation’s largest veteran population, nearly two million, yet almost one million have not been identified,” said Assemblymember Frazier. “Not only will AB 935 honor our state’s veterans, it will also play a critical role in improving access to resources, benefits and services for individuals who have served our country.”

“The BDCP is absolutely not a conservation plan,” said Assemblymember Frazier. “The conveyance of water through the twin tunnels will mean the total decimation of the Delta.
