Statement Explains Why SCA-5 Was Sent back to the CA Senate Today

SACRAMENTO, March 17, 2014 -—Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) and Senator Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina) released a joint statement regarding the return of Senate Constitutional Amendment No. 5 to its house of origin at the request of the author, and the creation of a bicameral commission on issues surrounding recruitment, admissions, and retention in California’s systems of higher education:

“The overwhelming majority of the Legislature in both houses believes that we have an obligation to provide the broadest access to our three higher education institutions: community colleges, CSUs and UCs. We will be convening a bicameral commission to further this important conversation. Our expectation is that this Commission will engage students, faculty, administration, parents and community leaders in an ongoing discussion about ways to ensure that our campuses can recruit, admit and retain student bodies that reflect all of California. This is a crucial issue for California and this is a conversation we need to have now. Our campuses should be given the tools they need to prepare all segments of our society to succeed in the 21st century economy.
A SCA-5 hearing was held at Cupertino town hall earlier today.

BayHelix Releases Statement “Vehemently Opposing” SCA-5

Decades ago, many of our members came to the United States attracted by the belief that this is the land where “all men are created equal” and her citizens and residents are endowed with certain unalienable rights including the rights to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” At that time, we were fortunately given the equal opportunity for education and career advancement, not because of our skin color or race, but because of our merit and character. We are now contributing members in the society, many in the State of California, as hard-working, tax-paying, and law-abiding citizens. We share these values with our children while creating new opportunities and jobs to others.
