AB 253 (Chapter 432 of 2013) “Allows Owners of Floating Homes to Purchase Marina”
Generally, floating home marinas are privately owned and charge homeowners monthly berthage fees. Should a marina owner want to sell the marina, AB 253 simply allows for a homeowners group to purchase the marina. This legislation also benefits marina owners who want to sell their marina by providing them with a potential buyer that has a vested interest in the marina.

Adelanto houses nearly 2,000 immigration adult detainees.

(Sacramento)- Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-Marin County) toured the Adelanto Detention Facility this past Friday, December 16, 2016. Adelanto has the capacity to house approximately 2,000 federal immigration adult detainees and currently houses 1,742 detainees. The facility houses adult males, females and does not house children. The Federal Government has a memorandum regarding “Policies for the Apprehension, Detention and Removal of Undocumented Immigrants” which establishes policies for enforcement, detention, and removal of detainees at detention facilities. Trump’s administration has the power to change and expand the priorities outlined in the memorandum.

“President–elect Trump has repeatedly voiced his threat to deport as many as 3 million immigrants. We must act to ensure the Trump administration does not cast a wider net to purge the United States of its immigrant communities,” said Assemblymember Marc Levine. “Immigration law is largely within the jurisdiction of the Federal Government. California has the power to protect immigrants. I will continue to author legislation and pursue policies that advocate for the fair treatment of all immigrants.”

Trump’s goal to deport 3 million Latinos and register Muslims is ethnic cleansing.

Today, as the Legislature reconvened for the 2017-18 Legislative Session, Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-Marin County) introduced Assembly Joint Resolution (AJR) 2 denouncing President-elect Trump’s ethnic cleansing efforts and calling on Congress and the President to reject efforts to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
