Statement from Assemblymember Rudy Salas

Sacramento – Assemblyman Rudy Salas (D-Bakersfield) today issued the following statement about the recent death at Glenwood Gardens:

"The death at a local senior independent living facility is both sad and troubling. At present, police and others are conducting investigations, and it is important to wait until we have all the facts. Should the law need to be modified, I have reserved Assembly Bill 633 that can be amended to ensure people are given proper emergency care when they need it."

Assemblymember Salas represents part of the City of Bakersfield, the cities of Arvin, Avenal, Hanford, Corcoran, Delano, Lemoore, McFarland, Shafter, Wasco, and the communities of Armona, Buttonwillow, Kettleman City, Lamont, Lost Hills, Stratford and Weedpatch.

Clean Water for Californians Bills Introduced

Legislation designed to address California's water crisis

(SACRAMENTO) — Assemblymember Rudy Salas (D-Bakersfield), along with several colleagues, has introduced legislation to address the drinking water crisis in California.

 “Having a reliable, clean water source is not an option; it’s a vital necessity to the health, safety and economic growth of our state’s population and economy,” stated Assemblymember Salas.  “We must invest in infrastructure projects that increase access to clean, safe drinking water.  “We must consolidate and eliminate the bureaucratic barriers that prevent communities in the Central Valley and throughout the state from accessing funds and resources to clean-up local water supplies,” concluded Salas.

California Dream Act Application Now Available

Salas Advocates For Fair Share of Realignment Dollars to Central Valley

Sacramento – Assemblymember Rudy Salas, D-Bakersfield, urges Director of the Department of Finance to distribute realignment funds in a manner proportional with each individual county’s caseload.

Kern County is receiving a lot more offenders than originally estimated.  CDCR’s estimate included 1,040 ADP.  The County currently has over 1,700 ADP under local supervision.  Each probation officer should have about 50 cases.  Due to the additional offenders that need supervision, officers are assigned twice that number.  Nearly 2,900 offenders who would have been in jail beds before realignment are now in alternative programs to incarceration: 2,086 are on work-release, which is an expansion of the program, 227 are supervised under the new electronic monitoring program, and 587 are on parole supervision.
