Peter Cervieri access_time 1 min read

Joint Informational Hearing on Prop 64 / AUMA – Assembly Committee on Business and Professions (Chair, Rudy Salas), Assembly Committee on Health (Chair, Jim Wood) and Assembly Committee on Agriculture (Chair Anna Caballero).

Editors Note: I thought it would be useful to cut the three hour policy discussion on California’s Prop 64 rollout in January 2018 into discreet segments and put them on youtube to make them accessible to more people.
