Grayson (D-Concord) to encourage transit-oriented development (TOD) at certain Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations was signed by Governor Jerry Brown today.

(SACRAMENTO) Yesterday, legislation authored by Assemblymember Timothy S. Grayson (D-Concord) to provide effective, accessible mental health services for public safety officers was vetoed by Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr.

“This decision displays an unfortunate disregard for the well-being of the brave women and men who put their lives on the line to protect Californians and sends a message to all public safety officers that their mental health is not a priority,” said Assemblymember Grayson, who has also served as the Concord Police Department’s Critical Response Chaplain for more than a decade. “It is disappointing that a bill that received the unanimous, bipartisan support of both houses of the legislature did not also have the support of our Governor.”
