(Sacramento) - Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez has received a unanimous, bipartisan vote to approve his AB 46 in the Assembly Local Government Committee. AB 46 would establish a process for disincorporating any city with a population of fewer than 150 people. One such city affected by the measure is the City of Vernon, which has a decades-long history of corruption allegations, indictments and convictions for offenses including voter fraud. “The unanimous vote is a strong statement against more than 60 years of corruption that represents a threat to jobs throughout Los Angeles County,” said the Speaker. “AB 46 not only remedies the corruption that currently exists, but permanently eliminates the structural mechanisms that have allowed this corruption to flourish unchecked for more than half a century.” Here’s more from the Speaker in this Assembly Access video.
