ACR 45, Blanca Rubio. California Celebrating Women in Public Office Day.
This measure proclaims every March 19 as California Celebrating Women in Public Office Day.
Fiscal Committee: NO  

WHEREAS, The month of March is Women’s History Month and the month celebrates the significant contributions that women of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds have made to the world; and
WHEREAS, There are 13 women currently serving in the California State Senate; and
WHEREAS, There are 23 women currently serving in the California State Assembly; and
WHEREAS, California currently has its first woman Lieutenant Governor; and
WHEREAS, There are currently 102 women serving in the United States House of Representatives; and
WHEREAS, Fifty-six women have served in the United States Senate, to date, with 25 serving at this time; and
WHEREAS, Women play a critical role in the vitality and diversity of our communities, and are essential to ensuring California is well-represented; and
WHEREAS, While the 20th century was a pivotal time of growth for women entering politics, women remain underrepresented in male-dominated fields, and, thus, providing opportunities to support women in public office is imperative; and
WHEREAS, Recognizing women in public office will bring awareness to the fundamental necessity of their work and will inspire other young people to serve their communities; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Assembly of the State of California, the Senate thereof concurring, That the Legislature proclaims every March 19 to be California Celebrating Women in Public Office Day; and be it further
