A Discussion with
- Sylvia Moir, El Cerrito Police Chief, and
- Mark Chekal-Bain, District Director for Assemblymember Nancy Skinner.
The ECDC March meeting will focus on efforts in the California legislature to advance gun safety legislation. We’ll hear from two people who have been intimately involved in the push: Sylvia Moir, El Cerrito Police Chief, and Mark Chekal-Bain, District Director for Assemblymember Nancy Skinner. Chief Moir has been actively consulting on a series of bills in the California State Senate, with ten separate bills currently in committee review. Meanwhile, in the Assembly, our Assemblymember Nancy Skinner has a bill that would require additional reporting of large sales of ammunition. We’ll have the good fortune to have these front-line experts help us sort it all out.
Following the formal presentations and Q&A, we’ll consider endorsing the Contra Costa County Central Committee’s resolution on gun safety,and discuss whether we want to bring up specific legislation for endorsement at our April meeting.
