Passed nearly two decades ago, Laura’s Law (Assisted Outpatient Treatment, or AOT) has been successfully implemented in many California counties — reducing hospitalizations, incarceration, homelessness and saving public funds. But it was not made permanent until Eggman’s legislation, nor did it require counties to hold public hearings and explain why they did not have such programs, as AB 1976 did. It was passed unanimously last year, and has since been adopted in 30 of California’s 58 counties, including all of the larger ones.

Current law requires patients to make two verbal requests to physicians at least 15 days apart and one written request that is signed, dated and witnessed by two adults.

Stanislaus State University is set to receive $54 million to help improve the Stockton campus, bringing in some new classrooms, and expanded enrollment for the site.

Noted as another champion of the effort, Sen. Susan Eggman said the investment was something she made a priority.

“The Invisible War,” a 2012 documentary about the culture of rape and sexual assault in the U.S. military, stunned Americans and was nominated for an Academy Award. This powerful film prompted a congressional inquiry on the subject. 

More recently, the tragic death of U.S. Army Specialist Vanessa Guillen reignited public outcry for change in how the military handles reports of sexual harassment and assault. It is indisputable that the federal government needs to pass reform for the protection of all who bravely serve our country.
