AB 1797 “Annual Policy Reassessment”

AB 1797 would require all insurers that write residential property plans to provide an estimate of replacement cost on all new business and also update those estimates during the annual renewal process. For those policies already in existence, an insurer would be required to update a replacement cost estimate at the next policy renewal after this law goes into effect.

President Trump’s Muslim ban is Islamophobic and betrays American Values

Today, Assembly Joint Resolution (AJR) 2, introduced by Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-Marin County) in December was referred out of the Assembly Rules Committee to the Assembly Judiciary Committee. AJR 2 calls on Congress and the President to reject immigration discrimination and efforts to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.

 “President Trump’s executive order to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States and drastically reduce refugee resettlement is Islamophobic and betrays American values and must be withdrawn,” said Assemblymember Marc Levine. “I am grateful our founders crafted the Constitution with co-equal branches of government, blessing our republic with checks and balances on power. The founder’s wisdom was reinforced this weekend when the courts issued a stay on this unconstitutional executive order on immigration.”

(Sacramento)- The California Legislative Jewish Caucus condemns President Trump’s reported orders to build a wall on the Mexican-American border and plan to block refugees from entering the United States.

As Jews we have seen this before. In 1939, the SS Saint Louis was turned away from the Port of Miami. More than one quarter of the passengers on the ship died in the Holocaust. Many immigrants entering the United States have fled incredible violence at home and are seeking a safe place for their families. The United States should never again repeat the mistakes of the past and should help these refugees instead of turning them away.
