The new legislative session is well underway and I want to provide an update on what I am working on in the District and the Capitol.

In January, Governor Gavin Newsom began his term as Governor with the California Rises Benefit Event. The event raised nearly 5 million dollars for victims of California wildfires. The event also recognized the thousands of firefighters and emergency personnel who answered the call to service. It was humbling to share the story of the Thomas Fire and Montecito Debris Flow and thank the many first responders in attendance for their heroic work on those tragic days.

California Rises Benefit Event

The inauguration speech given by the Governor continued the message of bringing California together. Governor Newsom, in just a few short months has begun to share his plan for how to move California forward. The 2019 Budget proposal lays out the blueprint of many of the top priorities for the state of California and the Governor.

His administration prioritizes early childhood education, expanding paid family leave, and continues to invest in wildfire prevention and recovery. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Assembly as we dive deeper into the budget.

I am honored to inform you that on December 3, 2018, I was sworn in to represent the 37th Assembly District for a second term and was also elected as the Vice-Chair of the bipartisan and bicameral California Legislative Women's Caucus. I am only the second woman from Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties to serve in this capacity.

As we begin 2019, I reflect on the 2018 year the 37th Assembly District and the State of California had. Despite devastation, wreckage, and rebuilding our communities have come together and persevered. I am confident California is working hard to ensure we are on the road to a better future. This newsletter includes a five minute video describing what the 37th Assembly District Team accomplished in the last 365 days.

Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. I look forward to continuing my work on behalf of the people of Ventura and Santa Barbara counties in 2019.

Sincerely,

As we approach the fall, I write to update you on where we are legislatively.

This legislative session, I focused on issues most affecting our district: recovery, preparation and aid from natural disasters. I am proud to announce that all natural disaster legislation I introduced was signed into law by the Governor. Additionally, this year we were successful in getting a total of 16 measures signed into law- all with bipartisan support, related to business & technology; the environment & natural resources; education; and health & human services.

I hope you find the information in this newsletter informative. I look forward to seeing you in the district soon.

As the end of the summer approaches, I wanted to update you on what I have been working on in the district and in Sacramento.

My legislative priorities this year were focused on the most pressing issues facing our community. In 2017 and early 2018 our community was devastated by two natural disasters that took the lives of many of our community members creating a void that may never be filled.

Last month, our district was tested yet again when two wildfires sprang up in the grasslands of our region, but this time we were prepared. Cal OES, local firefighters, and emergency personnel were able to utilize pre-staged equipment to contain the fire before it could further spread. I was proud to have supported funding to ensure prestaging resources and it is my hope that through further legislation and community support, we can get on the forefront of the now year-round California fire season.

I am proud to call the 805 home. Despite the difficult times our community has faced, we are working hard to recover and rebuild together.

As always, if you need assistance with a state agency or if you would like to invite me to a community event, please do not hesitate to contact me at (805) 564-1649 or leave me a note here. For updates on my work in the Capitol and around the district, follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @AsmMoniqueLimon.

Our community has shown incredible resilience and bravery through these difficult past few months. Despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that we face, I am inspired by how our community has come together in support of those in need—from the Coast Guard service members who pulled people out of the wreckage by helicopter, to the Spanish translator who continued to translate Thomas Fire updates at community meetings after her home burned down. The 805 continually amazes me and we truly are 805 Strong.

My team and I are doing everything in our power, through resource awareness, legislation and funding, to ensure that both the immediate and long-term needs will be met. It is in this vein that I want to share updates on work I am doing in the Capitol on your behalf, provide resources to assist in recovery and extend the assistance of my Assembly office. My team and I can help you navigate the many issues you or loved ones may be dealing with because of the Thomas Fire or the resulting mudslides. This includes helping with state agencies and departments who handle insurance, unemployment or taxes. We can be reached either at (805) 564-1649 or (805) 641-3700.
