Two-thousand guests have been invited to an expensive soiree Wednesday to celebrate the swearing-in of the first Latino to head the California Senate in more than a century.
Gov. Jerry Brown announced Sunday that he has signed a bill that makes California the first in the nation to define when “yes means yes” and adopt requirements for colleges to follow when investigating sexual assault reports.
By voice vote, the 40-member chamber elected Sen. Kevin de Leon to succeed Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg of Sacramento, who will step down Oct. 15, about seven weeks after this year’s legislative session has ended.
