Assembly Appropriations Yes on AB621
The California Assembly Committee on Appropriations is set to vote on Assembly Bill 621 on Friday, May 26, 2017. Urge them to vote yes to build an economic bridge that will help dedicated school workers make it through the summer break.
If this bill becomes a law, here’s how it will work: During the ten months of the school year, classified school workers will be able to contribute one day of pay each month to the Summer Bridge Fund. In return, the state will provide a 2 to 1 match. That means for every dollar you pay into the fund, you will get an additional two dollars back. You will then be able to cash-out all the money during the summer break when work is not available.
