Assemblyman Hagman Introduces Legislation to Stop Construction of the $185 Million CA Lottery Headquarters

I recently introduced legislation to put to a halt to the construction of the new $185 million new headquarters for the California Lottery Commission in Sacramento.

During this budget crisis, the last thing we should be doing is wasting money and time on a new building. How can we justify this spending, while schools are sending layoff notices to teachers?

The California State Lottery Act was approved by the voters in 1984. The commission approved a $185 million design contract for the new building last week. The Legislature has placed on the ballot a proposal to privatize future lottery operations.

The bill will stop the contract and divert the money to public schools.

Children in classrooms need the money more than the bureaucrats at the lottery need a new building.

Assembly Hagman Committee Assignments Made

The Speaker of the State Assembly has announced my service on four Assembly Committees

I was appointed Vice-Chair of the Public Safety Committee and as a member of the Assembly Committees on Accountability and Administrative Review, Aging and Long Term Care and the Joint Legislative Audit Committee. 

I look forward to working on these areas and continuing my focusing on protecting taxpayers and creating jobs. 

Cal Grant Deadline is March 2.

Diamond Bar Residents Can Get Free Sandbags

With the rainy season here, the City of Diamond Bar reminds its residents that free sand and sandbags are available at all County fire stations. Fire Stations 119 (20480 Pathfinder Road) and 121 (346 Armitos Road) are equipped to provide each resident up to 25 sandbags, upon request.

No advance call is needed, however, if you are planning on obtaining sandbags, fire personnel ask that you come prepared to fill your own bags.

Congratulations to the City of La Mirada

The City of La Mirada was recently named a ''Best Place to Live'' by CNN Money Magazine.  The list features 100 U.S. cities with populations between 7,500 and 50,000.  The nomination were based on data such as low crime rates, education scores, population growth, accessibility, housing affordability, school quality, arts and leisure opportunities and racial diversity.

Chino Hills to Open New Library

The new Chino Hills Branch Library will open the doors to the new 28,000 s.f. library for the first time on February 28, 2009.  A ribbon cutting ceremony will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday and the doors will open to the general public as soon as the ribbon is cut on that day at approximately 10:00 a.m.  This new library is three times the size of the old library. 

The libary is located at 14020 City Center Drive Chino Hills, CA 91709
