California AB36 would take the first step towards blocking federal programs that militarize local police by requiring all 1033 Program transfers to be approved by the local governing body. It passed the Local Government Committee by a vote of 9-0 and now must pass through the Appropriations Committee.


1. Call the Assembly Appropriations Committee Chair, Jimmy Gomez. Strongly, but respectfully urge her to move AB36 forward to a vote in her committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.

2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on AB36.
