As excerpted from the Sacramento Bee. 

When I walk through southeast Los Angeles, I see dozens of apartment buildings that could be transformed into hot spots of renewable energy generation. These affordable housing units – home to thousands of renters and with their large, flat roofs – have a huge untapped potential.
So I welcome Gov. Jerry Brown’s signing Thursday of Assembly Bill 693 by Assemblywoman Susan Talamantes Eggman, which will create the nation’s single largest investment in solar for low-income renters in history. The Multifamily Affordable Housing Solar Roofs Program includes a dedicated funding source of $100 million per year to install solar panels on multifamily affordable housing units, and would direct the savings back to low-income renters.

As excerpted from the Los Angeles Times.

For decades, Susan Talamantes Eggman's life has revolved around death.

As a hospice social worker, she sat by the bedsides of hundreds of terminally ill patients. As a doctoral candidate, she researched the end-of-life experiences of Latino families in the Central Valley.

Now, as a state Assembly member, she is the lead author of the law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday allowing terminally ill patients to legally obtain lethal doses of prescription drugs to end their lives.

The two bills were part of a pack of proposed reform legislation after widespread outrage when residents at an assisted living facility in Castro Valley were all but abandoned by staff when the operation was shut down in 2013.

SACRAMENTO - A year ago this month, Assemblywoman Susan Eggman, D-Stockton, was still settling into her seat in the Legislature.

She had just been named chairwoman of the Assembly Agriculture Committee and had introduced a farmland-preservation bill, AB823, hoping it would force a minimum mitigation standard for urban development projects statewide.
