Earlier this week, Californian Assembly Bill 2862, calling for the adoption of new California Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Standards unanimously passed the legislature and is now headed to Governor Brown’s desk for approval. NAMM Member and public support in collaboration with several state advocacy organizations has been crucial thus far, and is needed now to get the Bill signed into Law by Governor Brown.

When: Now. Lynne Faulks will include your emailed copy with the request for Governor Brown’s signature on Friday, September 2, 2016.
