State legislators reflect on wins and losses at the close of session
By Sierra Lopez
California’s legislative session has come to a close and San Mateo County representatives are celebrating achievements, mourning some losses and gearing up to continue the debate on a number of issues next session.
The last night of the 2021-22 session ran long but, by the close, dozens of bills were being sent to the governor’s desk for either a veto or a signature. State Sen. Josh Becker, D-San Mateo; Assembly Speaker pro Tem Kevin Mullin, D-South San Francisco; and Assembly-member Marc Berman, D-Palo Alto; all called out new climate policy as key advancements for the state.
