SB 143 - Diamond Valley Reservoir: recreational use
This is a district bill that would designate Diamond Valley Lake as a bodily-contact lake.  SB 143 would allow residents and visitors to fully enjoy Diamond Valley Lake, and greatly expand recreational opportunities in the area.  The language within SB 143 clearly states that bodily contact cannot happen until the proper water treatment options for coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection are in place, in order to protect the vital water supply.

SB 149 - Investigational drugs, biological products, or devices: right to try.
This is the “Right to Try” bill, allowing a terminally ill patient, who has exhausted all other options, to try an experimental drug in order to save their life.  SB 149 ensures that terminal patients have the right to make their own medical decisions, while providing important legal protections for patients, doctors, insurance and pharmaceutical companies.

This bill would lower the salary for numerous boards and commissions to a maximum of $12,000/year.  While most of the people on these boards and commissions do admirable work, these people who serve in these largely part time posts should treat their appointments as public service instead of full-time patronage positions.

SB 417 - Law enforcement: United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement holds.
This bill would require a law enforcement official to detain an individual on the basis of a United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold for up to 48 hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, after that individual becomes eligible for release from custody if that individual has been convicted of, or arrested for, specified crimes and if the continued detention of the individual on the basis of the immigration hold would not violate any federal law.

Would update the list of Felons not allowed on prison grounds to include those who have been convicted of felonies in other states or have been convicted of a felony in a Federal Court.

This bill will help protect victims of stalking, domestic violence and sexual assault from their abusers by replacing the narrow, outdated definition of electronic tracking device currently contained in Penal Code Section 637.7 with the broader, more technologically updated definition of tracking device contained in Penal Code Section 1534.

SB 717 - Sentencing: great bodily injury: murder or manslaughter.
This bill would restore the Great Bodily Injury (GBI) Enhancement statute that was struck down by the California Supreme Court.  The GBI Enhancement provides that a person, who inflicts great bodily injury on another person in the commission or attempted commission of a felony, shall be punished by additional and consecutive terms of imprisonment.

SB 737 - Vehicles: electronic wireless communication devices: penalties.
