State and federal lawmakers were meeting with local officials in Riverside Friday to exchange ideas about water conservation strategies as California’s drought enters its fourth year.
A bill by Inland Assemblyman Jose Medina, D-Riverside, would provide legal and financial assistance to more than 13,000 California students left to fend for themselves after Corinthian Colleges of Santa Ana closed its Everest, Wyotech and Heald campuses earlier this year.
I’ve always been a strong supporter of – and an advocate for – California community colleges.
Medina represents Riverside in the California Assembly. He wrote the bill that secured $15 million in annual state funding for the new medical school. It got unanimous support in Sacramento.
