Lackey unveils effort to combat date-rape, address Prop. 47 oversights

Senator Cathleen Galgiani (D-Stockton) and Assemblyman Tom Lackey (R-Palmdale) held a press conference Wednesday to announce their bipartisan coalition to address the weakening of state sexual assault laws caused by the passage of Proposition 47. Prop. 47 significantly reduced the penalty for illegal possession of drugs commonly used to facilitate sexual assaults-frequently referred to as "date-rape" drugs. Galgiani and Lackey have introduced legislation to give California voters the opportunity to undo this change and send a strong message to criminals that possessing date rape drugs will result in significant punishment.
