AB 849 Safe at Home & AB 415 Solar Heaters
(Sacramento) – Governor Brown has signed into law two measures authored by Assemblymember Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens). Assembly Bill 849 will expand to seniors the opportunity to participate in the state’s Safe at Home (SAH) program. Assembly Bill 415 will ensure new solar technologies have multiple options for getting systems certified. These two measures received bipartisan support in both the Assembly and Senate.
Currently, the SAH program allows victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking to apply to have an address designated by the Secretary of State to serve as a substitute mailing address and under certain circumstances to provide address confidentiality.
