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.

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.

The Knolls were part of a group of about 20 from the Stockton area who rode in a chartered bus to Palo Alto on Monday morning to remind Department of Veterans Affairs officials there of the need for more medical and psychological services in the Central Valley. Stockton Assemblywoman Susan Eggman organized the excursion to Palo Alto after collecting nearly 2,000 signed cards from residents calling for additional services closer to home.
 
“We need to keep this in the public eye,” said Eggman, who noted that Saturday is Veteran’s Day and added, “Silence makes bureaucracy not move.”

The Seal of Civic Engagement will join the Seal of Biliteracy, recognizing fluency in multiple languages, and the long-standing Golden State Seal Merit Diploma, recognizing overall academic excellence, as the civics equivalent of the Armed Forces’ oak leaf cluster to honor meritorious service.
 
It was created by Assembly Bill 24, authored by Assemblywoman Susan Eggman, D-Stockton, in an effort to revive civics education. It was signed into law earlier this month. Who will be eligible for it and the criteria for awarding it will be hashed out over the next two years by the state Department of Education and ultimately will be decided by the State Board of Education in early 2021. Their challenge will be to strike a balance between encouraging civic involvement by all students and singling out outstanding accomplishments that catch the eye of colleges and employers .

Assemblywoman Susan Eggman, D-Stockton, who requested the state audit last year along with Sen. Lois Wolk of Davis, said Thursday that the findings are “one more stick in the spokes of a bicycle that is going off the track.”
 
“I think the takeaway is they’ve been planning for 11 years and there’s no plan,” Eggman said. “It’s time to cut our losses and start working on a real solution.”
