California’s Asian American State Senators Call for Hold on SCA5


As debate over SCA5 runs hotly both pro and con, California Asian American State Senators Ted Lieu, Carol Liu, and Leland Yee have asked that SCA 5 be put on hold.  Here is their joint statement:

“As lifelong advocates for the Chinese American and other API communities, we would never support a policy that we believed would negatively impact our children. Prior to this vote, we heard no opposition to this bill. However, in the past few weeks, we have heard from thousands of people throughout California concerned about SCA 5. As a result, we have asked Sen. Hernandez to hold SCA 5 until he has an opportunity to meet with affected communities and attempt to build a consensus.”

All three had previously voted to move SCA5 along.
