Assemblyman Steven Choi Announces Two of his Bills Have Been Chaptered
Friday, October 20, 2017
Assemblyman Steven Choi (R, 68 AD) has announced that two of his bills have been signed into law by Governor Brown.
AB 1094 clarifies existing law by assisting local law enforcement officials in citing the correct violation for running a red light on a freeway onramp. This bill ensures proper citation under the vehicle code for red light violations at a freeway onramp. AB 1094 was needed so that highway onramp red light violations were not treated the same as running a red light in a regular intersection.
AB 1412 ensures that immunity extends to volunteers who serve on the Homeowner Association boards (HOA’s) that are located in mixed-use developments. Historically, protection from personal liability has existed for volunteer officers or directors of associations that manage exclusively residential common interest developments for actions or omissions made in good faith and within their scope of duty. Now, AB 1412 extends these protections to volunteer officers or directors in associations that manage mixed-use communities, including both residential, commercial, and/or office space.
An additional bill authored by Assemblyman Choi successfully arrived on the Governor’s desk. AB 662, called for the tracking of victim restitution by sending quarterly statements to victims and monthly statements to defendants regarding the payment status of restitution orders. AB 662 successfully garnered unanimous support in both the Assembly and Senate in every committee this bill was assigned to, as well as on both the Assembly and Senate Floors; however, Governor Brown vetoed AB 662.
“As a Freshman Republican Assemblymember, I am very pleased to have two bills successfully proceed through the Legislature and signed into law by Governor Brown,” stated Assemblyman Choi. Assemblyman Choi has a number of two-year bills that will be heard in committees in January, as well as many new bills that will be introduced in 2018.
Assemblyman Choi serves the 68th District, which includes the Orange County cities of Anaheim, Irvine, Lake Forest, North Tustin, Orange, Tustin, and Villa Park.
