Brian Dahle (R-Bieber), and Assemblyman Frank Bigelow (R-Madera) and Assemblywoman Megan Dahle (R-Bieber).

This meeting resulted in a letter to the governor outlining recommendations the Dahles championed, along with 20 school superintendents who co-signed the letter.

Northstate Assemblyman James Gallagher has introduced legislation aimed at helping victims of destructive fires caused by PG&E.  The legislation, announced by Gallagher, is co-authored by State Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama), Senator Brian Dahle (R-Bieber), Assemblywoman Megan Dahle (R-Bieber), Senator Bill Dodd (D-Napa) and Assemblyman Frank Bigelow (R-Madera).
State lawmakers have approved a six-point-six billion dollar plan aimed at pressuring school districts not already open to return students to the classroom before the end of the year. It doesn’t order districts to resume in-person learning. Instead, the state will tempt cash-strapped school boards with two-billion dollars, if they reopen campuses by the end of the month. Meanwhile, some Republican lawmakers, including Brian and Megan Dahle, negotiated amendments that ensure that districts that have been open, in some form, can also tap into the funding…
As we approach a full year since California schools shut down to slow the spread of COVID-19, parents are wondering when their children will ever see a classroom again. As families raise their voices, the governor and the majority leadership in the Legislature have released competing plans to reopen schools.   Getting kids back in school is vital, but both plans ignore one little-known fact:  Many schools in California are already holding classes in person. And, far from helping, both plans would hinder these schools from continuing to provide safe, in-person instruction.

Great news for Lassen Community College — the state of California has reinstated the funding cut from the college’s budget late last year. “We got the funding reinstated,” said Trevor Albertson, LCC’s acting superintendent/president. “It was a lot of hard work on the part of a lot of people up here at the college.” Albertson made several trips to Sacramento and Redding to meet with state officials to negotiate the reinstatement. “The chancellor’s office came through for us after appropriate advocacy,” Albertson said.”We appreciate that, but it took some serious advocacy to get it done.”…
AB 2041: A Solution California needs to Small Business Cost Burdens and Skilled Workforce Shortages  
  Assemblywoman Dahle proposes a tax credit for small businesses that hire and train first-time employees ages 18-25  SACRAMENTO – California now boasts the highest corporate taxes, income taxes, sales taxes, and fuel taxes in the country. With its soaring tax rates and significant regulatory burdens on business, our state is no easy place for small businesses to thrive.   At the same time, young adults are facing a tough labor market, and one in three reports that they cannot secure a job.
