SACRAMENTO – Today, Assemblyman Scott Wilk, R- Santa Clarita, had two bills pass the Assembly Appropriations committee; each bill receiving unanimous support.   

Assembly Bill 1707 requires the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) to post a copy of the scientific peer review conducted on its internet website. AB 1707 will provide clarity and will implement a more effective strategy through mandatory reporting of the peer review and mandatory online availability for interested parties.

“This web site clearinghouse will provide greater transparency and accountability to an area that is lacking,” said Wilk.

Wilk’s second bill to pass fiscal committee, AB 1680, will help keep children safe and make it easier for parents to decipher legitimate service providers from shams. Current law requires those working with minors in the entertainment industry to obtain a Child Performer Service (CPS) Permit. This bill requires CPS Permit recipients to display their permit numbers on all advertising materials, including online advertising.

“There is a lot to be done to keep children in the industry safe, and this bill is a great start,” stated Wilk.

The 38th Assembly District encompasses Simi Valley, the northern section of the San Fernando Valley and most of the Santa Clarita Valley.
