Jay Obernolte on Families & Children
Pro-teaching argument by the CPEDV (California Partnership to End Domestic Violence): By addressing dating and sexual violence through a school-wide, coordinated policy response, we can create a safe space for students. AB 329 ensures that pupils gain the "knowledge and skills they need to form healthy relationships that are based on mutual respect and affection, and are free from violence, coercion, and intimidation." Dating abuse and sexual violence prevention can be addressed throughout sex education instruction.
Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 26-14-0 on Sept/10/15; Passed Assembly 51-26-3 on Sept/11/15; State Rep. Jay Obernolte voted NO; Signed by Governor Jerry Brown on Oct/1/15.
Analysis by DeathWithDignity.org: California's physician-assisted dying law took effect on June 9, 2016. Patients may request and physicians may prescribe life-ending medications under the law. The End of Life Option Act closely follows the model of the Oregon Death with Dignity Act with some modifications, most of which are required to comply with the California statute.
Legislative Outcome: Passed Assembly 44-35-1 on Sep/05/2015; State Rep. Jay Obernolte voted NO; Passed Senate 23-15-2 on Sep/11/2015; Signed by Governor Jerry Brown on Oct/15/2015
Pro-car seat argument by CSFTL (Car Seats For The Littles): Rear facing is 5 times safer for children who are between 1 and 2 years old. When children ride rear facing, instead of their head flying forward in a crash, the child's head, neck, and back will be supported by the car seat, reducing the amount of pressure put on the child's undeveloped spine.
Legislative Outcome: Passed Assembly 65-13-2 on May/11/15; Rep. Jay Obernolte voted NO; Passed Senate 32-7-1 on Aug/24/15; Signed by Governor Jerry Brown on Sept/21/15
