Senator Moorlach Responds to Governor Brown Signing Anti-Transparency Bill, AB 1671

Friday, September 30, 2016

Senator Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa) issued the following statement in response to Governor Brown signing Assembly Bill 1671 by Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez (D-Los Angeles):

"Let me repeat what I stated on the Senate Floor when I expressed my strong opposition to AB 1671. When 60 Minutes uses a hidden camera and discovers a unique story, it’s called outstanding journalism. But when a private citizen does it and unmasks a very, very unpleasant truth about a taxpayer-backed organization, it somehow becomes a call for legislation.

"Sacramento is again solving a problem with the wrong solution. It is ignoring the message and going after the messengers. It is an odd way to address a concern that has existing laws on the books.”
