ACTION ALERT: Pass AB351 To Help Stop "Indefinite Detention"


On October 1, 2013, AB351 was appoved by Governor Brown.

As of September 3, 2013, AB351 passed both houses of Legislation.  The next step is for Governor Brown to sign it into law.  Please call or write the Governor to show support for his signing the bill.  To call:  (916) 445-2841. 

On August 12, 2013, AB351 was ordered for a third reading in the State Senate.  So, the Bill is still alive, but needs your help in getting it passed.  Please call the legislators listed at the end of this article to express your views.


California Assemblyman Tim Donnelly's AB351, a bill which starts the process of stopping "Indefinite Detention" under the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), has passed the State Assembly by a vote of 71 - 1, and the State Senate Public Safety Committee as well.  The next step is a hearing and vote in the Senate Appropriations Committee, where the bill is scheduled to be heard on August 12, 2013. (See Update above)

On February 26, 2013, thanks to efforts of groups opposing the "Indefinite Detention" clause of the NDAA, including the Libertarian Party of San Francisco, the San Francsico Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a Resolution declaring San Francisco's opposition to the clause.  The same can be accomplished at the California Legislature's level.
