This bill has been hacked and hacked and is so poorly written that people may loose sight of the fact that it's still placing an undue burden on private universities! In addition, IF Senator Lara is reelected in November he has already stated he will reintroduce this legislation after "further research of the unintended consequences."
Lara made it clear that he intends to win an "easy" re-election.
Yet constituents of all backgrounds--and political affiliations--despise his arrogant politicking and electioneering.
Robson reminded voters that she is Lara's latest challenger, and will allow him to continue abusing his responsibilities against the rights and needs of California residents.
Please spread the word that he IS NOT running unopposed!! I can promise that I would never introduce or support any bill that directly went against the First Amendment or any Constitutionally held right!

(a) A detailed explanation of the reason for each student suspension or expulsion that occurred during the preceding quarter, including on explanation of the policy the student violated and whether that policy is authorized under the exemption.
(b) Whether the student was a Cal Grant recipient."
And further, why should the state pay the additional administrative costs to do the following?
"66290.2. (a) Each postsecondary educational institution in this state that claims an exemption pursuant to Section 901(a)(3) of the federal Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. Sec. 1681(a)(3)) or Section 66271 shall submit to the Student Aid Commission copies of all materials submitted to, and received from, a state or federal agency concerning the granting of the exemption.(b) The Student Aid Commission shall collect the information received pursuant
Mimi Robson is running for State Senate on the Libertarian ticket.
She deserves all the support, especially because she opposes Lara's destructive erosion of citizenship and our individual liberties.
