On October 12, 2017, Governor Brown signed AB480 into law.
Help a Mother Out commends Assembly Member Gonzalez-Fletcher for her persistent efforts to include diapers in California’s safety net, and for her leadership in sponsoring AB480. Since 2009, Help a Mother Out has worked to address the unmet immediate need in the community and engaged in legislative advocacy for public policy solutions to end diaper need. We applaud Governor Brown for signing AB480 into law and look forward to additional counties joining San Francisco’s efforts to include diapers in the CalWORKs safety net.
