Express your opinion on California’s Matt’s Law

If it is your pleasure, please take a moment to send an email {} to Senator Torlakson of California who is presenting SB1454 to the Public Safety hearing this morning. Senator Torlakson’s office worked with several other Senators to make slight revisions to the wording of the bill, and as a result the bill was unanimously accepted by the committee.
The next step is the Judiciary Committee. Express your view in favor of the bill or any objections you may have as part of the democratic process.

I am grateful to the parents of Matt Carrington for keeping this site informed. HN
