Hello all:

We found out that State Senator Jerry Hill did ANOTHER "gut and amend" on Senate Bill SB 611 to try to get preference for San Mateo County to get jail construction funding from the state. This bill will be heard in the Assembly Public Safety Committee TODAY.

What can you do to stop this?

First, please call the Assembly Public Safety Committee {contact information below} ASAP to raise concerns about SB 611.

Remember, when we did this back in August, we stopped Jerry Hill's jail bill in its tracks! Check out this article:

And when you call an Assembly member, why not mention San Mateo County's lack of accountability with their budget process and their deception of local voters, and explain why our County doesn't DESERVE state funding for a jail? Citations that you can send to them via email include:
