Welcome



The California Legislature reconvened last Wednesday, and I am excited to get to work for the people of Placer, Sacramento, and El Dorado counties. It is a great honor to be your representative, and I hope you will let me know what you’d like to see from your state government this year. You can email me at Assemblymember.Kiley@assembly.ca.gov or contact my district office at 916-774-4430. I look forward to hearing from you!

Issues and Legislation

High-Speed Rail


Many people have expressed to me their frustration that California is spending so much money on High Speed Rail instead of repairing roads. In fact, cost overruns for High Speed Rail are now projected at more than $31 billion - while our roads are in worse shape than ever. I’m happy to share with you that I’ll be co-authoring Assembly Bill 65, which would stop the High Speed Rail Authority from continuing to take money from the state’s Highway Repair Fund. Passing this legislation will free up billions currently allotted to High Speed Rail and put the money where it’s needed.

Drugged Driving


I was not in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana because I did not think it was in the interest of public safety. But now that California voters have chosen legalization, we must take immediate steps to minimize any dangers to our communities. Perhaps the biggest concern is drug-impaired driving, which can be just as hazardous as driving drunk. I will be co-authoring and fighting for the passage of Assembly Bill 6, which allows law enforcement officers to test suspected drugged drivers in the same way as drunk drivers and begins the process of developing standards for determining impairment by marijuana.

Freedom of Speech at our Universities


Last month I released a statement in response to the publication of the 2017 Speech Code Report by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). The report gave “red” ratings to nine California public universities for campus speech code violations that restrict freedom of speech, legal equality, and sanctity of conscience. Over the next few months I’ll be working with university administrators, faculty, students, and other key stakeholders to ensure our colleges and universities are allowing for diversity of thought, free expression, and an open exchange of ideas.
