California Action Steps

California SB828, the 4th Amendment Protection Act was introduced, SB828 is a bill that creates a mechanism to turn off resources from California to the NSA (along with additional actions) (learn about the bill here)

STATUS: SB828 was referred to the Committee on Public Safety
04-29-14: Passed committee, 6-0
05-12 Sent out of Appropriations committee to the full senate
05-19 – Passed Senate, 29-1
06-24 – Passed Assembly Public Safety committee, 5-0

YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED NOW.  It doesn’t matter where in California you live, take these actions today.

1. Call your state assemblyperson Strongly, but respectfully urge him or her to support this important bipartisan bill. Let them know that you’d like to see a YES on SB828.

If your assemblyperson does not commit to a YES vote, ask them why. If they are undecided, let them know you’ll call back in a few days. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.

Find your assemblyperson here: http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/

2. Call Back – any NO or UNDECIDED – in 3-4 days.   Ask if they’ve had a chance to review the legislation and what their opposition might be.   Email us at info@offnow.org with any information you get.

3.  on Twitter?  Retweet

4.  Write a letter to the editor Look up your local newspaper and submit a letter to the editor voicing your support for SB828. Following strong legal principles, it’s essential that California no longer help the federal government spy on all of us. Passing SB828 will help make that happen.

    Called Loni’s office. Was told she has not yet taken a stand nor has a comment at this time. Indicated she may need a couple weeks to review it. That means more time for public input!

    • Also- FYI – Sen. Anderson is a co-author of the bill, so he definitely supports it. Glad he is on the committee!
