AB 1831 would close a loophole in existing law that prevents law enforcement from prosecuting people who possess, distribute, and create AI-generated sexually explicit images of children.
AB 1937 would facilitate the City of Pacifica’s acquisition of an excess Caltrans property near Pacifica State Beach. The property will provide additional public beach parking for Pacifica State Beach and will eventually serve as the trailhead parking lot for the California Coastal Trail, which is being constructed through the Pedro Point Headlands.
AB 1958 would add project management experience to the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority Board of Directors list of desired qualifications.
AB 1962 would strengthen California’s law against revenge porn by closing the loopholes in the current law ensuring individuals that distribute a secretly recorded or stolen image fall under revenge porn statute.
AB 2057 would make permanent the Associate Degree for Transfer Intersegmental Implementation Committee. The Committee was established by state law in 2021 to facilitate intersegmental coordination in order to streamline college transfer across California's higher education segments.
AB 2083 would require the California Energy Commission to develop a plan for the state to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases in the state's industrial sector in order to reach California's ambitious climate targets.
AB 2097 would guarantee that all students in California have access to computer science education and establish computer science as a high school graduation requirement. Twenty-seven other states already require every high school to offer a computer science course. Five states, Arkansas, Nebraska, Nevada, South Carolina, and Tennessee, require a computer science course for high school graudation. California has fallen behind 40 other states in the percentage of high schools offering at least one computer science course, exacerbating educational inequities and diversity gaps.

AB 2642 would enhance the protection of every voter's fundamental right to cast a ballot and help ensure that election workers are free from interference and intimidation. The Protecting Elections from Armed Coercion and Extremism Act (PEACE Act) strengthens and supplements existing anti-intimidation laws by providing explicit civil protections for both election workers and voters. It also establishes a presumption that people who carry firearms around election activities or workers are intimidating.
AB 2655 will be amended to protect election integrity by regulating the spread of AI-generated disinformation and deepfakes online meant to influence an election.
AB 2668 provides health insurance coverage for wigs or hairpieces for Californians experiencing medical hair loss due to health conditions, including alopecia areata.
