Grayson and Colleagues Introduce Fiscally Responsible Savings Account Bill

(SACRAMENTO) - Today Assemblymember Tim Grayson (D - Concord) and seven of his Democratic Assembly colleagues introduced landmark legislation to create a new, more flexible state savings account to insulate Californians from the potentially devastating impacts of future economic downturns.

Benicia teens lead march of about 800: ‘We will vote’

Benicia is known for its numerous parades. Protest marches? Not as much. Until Saturday.

Around 800 residents braved an early morning chill led by students with a NEVER AGAIN banner, getting a jump on the national March for Our Lives with a walk up First Street and speeches at the City Park gazebo.

“Brave students have come together to say ‘enough is enough,’” said Assemblyman Tim Grayson, adding that he appeared in Benicia not as a politician, but as the father of a 16-year-old.
