Contrary to how some have misrepresented the letter my colleagues and I sent to California Attorney General Rob Bonta, we are not asking to “unilaterally strike (Donald) Trump’s name” from the ballot.
Nine California lawmakers asked the state’s attorney general in a letter on Monday to seek a court opinion on whether former President Donald J. Trump should be excluded from Republican primary ballots under the 14th Amendment.
In April 2018, the right-wing One America News Network (OAN) interviewed California State Assembly member Travis Allen, who is running for governor as a Republican, about Assembly Bill 2943, a proposed law currently before state legislators.
The bill relates to “gay conversion therapy,” but according to Allen and “Tipping Point” host Liz Wheeler, it would effectively ban the sale of Christian books, including the Bible.
A new bill passed by the California Assembly on Thursday would classify the selling or advertising of gay conversation therapy as a fraudulent business practice.
Assemblyman Evan Low (D) said the practice of trying to change someone’s sexual orientation is ineffective, The Associated Press reported.
While a handful of states have moved to restrict so-called conversion therapy, California lawmakers are poised to ban the sale or advertisement of the controversial practice in an effort to crack down on its use. The California State Assembly passed a bill earlier this week that classifies conversion therapy as a fraudulent business practice and make it illegal for anyone to claim they can change a person's sexual orientation or gender identity through the practice.
California lawmakers are considering a bill that would make selling or advertising gay conversion therapy a violation of the state’s consumer fraud laws.
The state Assembly passed Bill 2943 on Thursday. The legislation, which targets the practice of trying to change a person’s sexual orientation, now heads to the state Senate. If enacted, the bill would make “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts” to the list of fraudulent business practices already banned in California.

Nonetheless, the 16-year-old undocumented high school junior at San Diego’s King-Chavez High School spent last Sunday afternoon on a street corner helping others register to vote. “I’m not a U.S. citizen, so I can’t vote,” said Antunez, who was brought to this country from the Mexican city of Cuernavaca as a 6-year-old and is registered in the U.S. government’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA.

California’s recreational marijuana customers would gain a measure of privacy under a new bill introduced at the state Capitol.
Assembly Bill 2402 would ban retail marijuana shops from selling customer data to third-party vendors without the customer’s consent.
Assemblyman Evan Low, D-Silicon Valley, said the bill would block employers from obtaining information about an employee who buys marijuana.
Each day, more than 150 million Americans turn to video games to be entertained, to learn a skill or to spend time with family and friends. Without realizing it, they’re also providing a major boost to California’s economy.
Given our dominant positions in both entertainment and technology, it’s not surprising that California is far ahead of other states when it comes to the entertainment software industry. California is home to 27 percent of the domestic gaming industry, with more than 900 companies and 33,000 jobs – seven times as many as our nearest competitor, Texas.
