Translate

By Morgan Brizee

On Feb. 21 California Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva held a press conference at Sacramento State University’s campus library to talk about a new bill that she has written. Silva is the assemblywoman for the 65 th District of California covering the communities of Anaheim, Buena Park, Cypress, Fullerton, Garden Grove, La Palma, and Stanton. The new bill is called AB 393: The Student Protection Act. This new bill could halt any tuition increases in California for all public community colleges as well as state universities. The bill is also backed by the California Faculty Association(CFA).

A press release by Quirk-Silva said that,“Quirk-Silva authored AB 393: The Student Protection Act in light of the hard realities facing today’s college students, including the deepening of debt and long hours of work that are necessary to live while paying education costs, but that interfere with their studies.”
