Debbie Smith message: Matt’s Law update

Hi Everyone

Matt’s Law was read on the floor of the Senate just a little bit ago and passed 33-2 Hollingsworth and McClintock both voted no again.

It is on its way to the Governor’s desk, I will let you know if he decides to have a ceremonial signing, if he decides to vote yes. If you haven’t written your letter yet please do so now.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
State Capitol Building
Sacramento, CA 95814

Thank you for all your hard work. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Friday, November 10th for Matt’s Law Appreciation and Celebration Dinner you’ll be glad you did. Details will follow.

“Hug your children and tell them you love them everyday.”


Debbie, MM
