Senator Bill Dodd (D-Napa) and state Treasurer John Chiang discuss Senate Bill 33, which helps ensure victims of bank fraud can have their day in court and get compensated for their damage. The bill, authored by Senator Dodd and co-sponsored by Treasurer Chiang, was introduced following the recent Wells Fargo scandal where millions of fake accounts were fraudulently opened without consent, using consumer’s personal information from existing accounts.

A Message from Senator Bill Dodd

Dear Neighbor,

This month I hosted a series of immigration forums across the district. I have received hundreds of calls and emails this year from residents concerned about federal immigration action and immigrant rights, and I appreciate the hundreds of people who turned out to the events. If you were unable to attend, you can view a video of one of the forums here.

April is Earthquake Preparedness Month. We know that earthquakes can and will happen throughout our state. While we can't stop them, we can prepare.

A Message from Bill Dodd

Last month, I co-hosted healthcare town halls across our district to answer your questions and your hear concerns. Over the next month, I will be hosting a series of immigration forums. I have received hundreds of calls and emails this year from residents concerned about federal immigration action and immigrant rights.

These forums will bring together immigration experts, resource providers and local officials provide answers about the law, pending policies, and resources available to immigrants. I hope you can attend one of our upcoming events.

It is critical that California maintains and expands our progress towards affordable healthcare coverage for all, environmental stewardship, educational opportunity, and protections for immigrants.
