WE ARE NOT DONE YET
Jackie & George Donohoe are reaching out with the hope to gain support for their petition and to ensure that SB 465 Passes.
My name is Jackie Donohoe and my life was changed forever a year ago when I lost my daughter, Ashley and my niece Olivia when a balcony they were standing on collapsed in Berkeley, California and they and four other students fell to their deaths.
The California Senate has unanimously passed a bill which should “bring more oversight to the construction contractors’ industry.” Construction firms will have to release their public safety records and report any work related crimes to the Contractors State License Board. In addition, we hope that this bill will ultimately force contractors who build defectives structures to publicly disclose their settlements. Secret settlements only help contractors hide their negligent conduct.
The next step is the Senate Bill 465 will now go to the State Governor Brown for consideration. Brown has until Sept. 30 to sign or veto bills. Brown will consider 789 bills this month.
This could have been prevented. We are now one step closer to the action that could help prevent this tragedy but WE ARE NOT DONE YET.
To ensure that this kind of tragedy never happens again. We need to make sure this legislation passes. Please, I am urging you to please view, share, sign,
Please spread the word to support my petition and help ensure that SB 465 passes.
