Senator Anna M. Caballero (SD 12) Announces legislation to bridge the digital divide in rural and underserved communities throughout the state.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to center stage what those who have been living in rural or underserved communities have known for a long time. Because internet service providers are private companies delivering services for profit, they face pressures from investors who expect returns on their investments. This pressure leads to lack of services in rural, low-density or low-income areas.
Senator Anna M. Caballero (SD 12) to work collaboratively once again with her colleagues in both houses to address the unprecedented housing crisis faced by millions of Californians
In August 2020, the Legislature passed and the Governor signed AB 3088, the Tenant, Homeowner, and Small Landlord Relief and Stabilization Act authored by Assemblymembers Chiu and Limon and Senators Caballero and Bradford.

Senator Anna M. Caballero (SD 12) Announces legislation to help survivors of domestic violence.
The Stay at Home Order issued March 2020 in California has had the unintended consequence of increasing the number of domestic violence and abuse reports throughout our state. For those that make the oftentimes dangerous decision to leave an abusive partner, obtaining a domestic violence restraining order is a vital first step.
Currently a judge can grant a multitude of different orders to provide protections for the abused party in a domestic violence restraining order, yet no options exist to keep school, medical and dental information about the shared children from the abuser, in order to protect the children and the non- putative party. If there is no clear language stating otherwise, these 3rd party institutions have no authority to deny a parent their legal right to information.
