(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton), Chair of the Assembly Committee on Accountability and Administrative Review, led an oversight hearing and asked tough questions regarding the California WaterFix. “The wisdom of Governor Brown’s proposal to build twin tunnels through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to deliver water to Southern California continues to be called into question,” Assemblymember Eggman said.

AB2771 has exciting potential. Assemblywoman Susan Eggman, D-Stockton, has co-authored this $7 billion university bond. The Higher Education Facilities Bond Act of 2018 would address billions of dollars in capital needs and long-postponed maintenance at aging University of California and California State campuses.
 
And it would include enough extra moola to fund three new campuses. Including, say, a California Polytechnic University, Stockton. Or a plain old Stockton State.
 
“Can I automatically say we’re going to get a campus with this?” said Eggman. “I don’t know that I can say that. But I can say it puts us a whole lot closer to the goal line, with money on the table.”
 
The bill won bipartisan approval this week in the Assembly Higher Education Committee.

SACRAMENTO—Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton) has announced that she will be introducing the California Right to Repair Act. The legislation would require manufacturers of electronics to make diagnostic and repair information, as well as equipment or service parts, available to product owners and to independent repair shops.

The Golden State may produce more solar energy than anywhere else in the country, but when it comes to being green, there are “two Californias,” says Assemblywoman Susan Eggman.
 
The mountainous “spine” of central California, as Ms. Eggman likes to call it, is very different from the coast: there are more low-income households, higher electricity bills, and more expensive estimates for solar panel installation.
 
To bring California’s green reputation to places like her hometown of Stockton, Calif., Eggman created the Solar on Multifamily Affordable Housing (SOMAH) program. Under Assembly Bill 693, the program fully subsidizes solar panels on multifamily buildings that are located in disadvantaged areas, have a number of federally subsidized units, or where the majority of tenants earn less than 60 percent of the area’s average income.

(Sacramento) - In honor of Rosa Parks’ 104th birthday, Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton) gave a moving speech about Parks’ enduring legacy. “While she did this one great thing that we all remember, let us never forget the full life she lived that is symbolic of the struggles we still face if you are an African American or if you are a woman,” Assemblymember Eggman said.

Eggman, joined by Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, who represents Chula Vista, fired off a letter to CSU Chancellor Timothy White that probably steamed itself open.

The letter said they found the spokesman’s comment “incredibly disturbing.”

“We would hope that the CSU — the people’s university — values the students coming from all areas of the state, and that our communities not be discarded with a chuckle or a question about whether students could bear to attend.”

The bill creating the program — carried by Assemblywoman Susan Eggman, D-Stockton — was signed into law in 2015. Since then, it has undergone a halting regulatory process at the Public Utilities Commission, which this week approved the final regulations.
 
Lazero said she hoped that the first panels would be installed in the fall of 2018.
 
Co-sponsoring Eggman’s bill was the California Solar Energy Industries Association, which notes the challenge of installing solar panels on any multi-unit apartment building is far greater than on a single-family home, especially for a building housing low-income tenants.
