The California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) is requesting the Governor's signature on a number of Assembly and Senate bills that await his decision.
" These CSLEA-supported bills have passed the legislature and on behalf of CSLEA's nearly 7,000 law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection members, I am requesting that the Governor sign them into law," said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. "These bills have an impact on public safety and/or on our members and we want our members to be heard. Because CSLEA has a strong, active presence at the Capitol and the best legislative and political consultants, this association is able to reach out to the Governor to weigh in."
On August 22, 2014 Barcelona requested the Governor's signature on:
