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.

As excerpted from The Record. 

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.”

Celebrating Unsung Community Hero in the CA Assembly 13th District

Saturday, December 16, 2017
As excerpted from the Mercury News.
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.

SACRAMENTO – The latest Public Policy Institute of California paper entitled “Improving College Pathways in California” is a sobering read for policy makers.  In addition to several pieces highlighting the challenges that our high school students face today, there is one area that needs to be highlighted – “the CSU does not have adequate capacity to enroll qualified students…In the past four years, CSU has turned away more than 69,000 qualified California high school graduates, who have completed the a-g course requirements.  With more high school graduates expected to complete the a-g sequence, CSU’s capacity constraints are likely to limit students’ access to higher education.”

As excerpted from the Sacramento Bee.

The planned 158,000-square-foot, four-floor VA facility just outside Stockton is supposed to offer top-notch, patient-focused services, including primary care, mental health, physical therapy, prosthetics and dental. But under the current schedule, construction won’t start until late 2018 or early 2019. The first patient won’t be treated until summer 2022.
That isn’t soon enough for Assemblywoman Susan Talamantes Eggman, the latest official to raise a stink about the long wait.
