The COVID-19 global pandemic has increased our reliance on technology for our transactions to reduce close human contact. One of those changes includes making Bay Area tolls cashless. But this shift has been unfair to working drivers who don’t have debit or credit cards to pay tolls electronically, consequently saddling them with debt as a result of compounding late fees and penalties that grew their balances to hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. No one should be fined for driving to work.

When the pandemic began two years ago, our state faced the critical challenge of keeping our communities safe in the face of a global health crisis. Since then, although we all have become much more aware of ways to protect our physical health, it is important to remember the key role of mental health in our lives as well.

May is Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, and I am happy to celebrate with a historic state investment in our AAPI community. I recently stood on Geary Boulevard in front of the Jackie Chan Senior Center to proudly announce that $14.2 million in Stop AAPI Hate grants have been distributed to 80 deserving organizations throughout California. This will help them combat the rising number of attacks targeting Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

Back in January 2021, 84-year-old Vicha Ratanapakdee went on his daily walk around his Anza Vista neighborhood and was violently shoved to the pavement in what his family calls an unprovoked act of anti-Asian violence. The elderly man did not survive his injuries. His case is among the many attacks documented last year that prove hate crimes against the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community haven’t stopped.

Many families continue to suffer the effects of COVID-19, and some even face losing their homes. According to state estimates, about 6% of California homeowners have fallen behind on their mortgage payments. A wave of foreclosures could lead to an increase in homelessness and create even more competition in our rental market, leading to further increases to our cost of living.

As we ring in 2022, the Golden State will take significant steps toward reducing plastic pollution, thanks to legislation I authored that will go into effect on Jan. 1. Assembly Bill (AB) 793 will make your sodas, bottled water and other drinks come in more environmentally friendly packaging. California is now the first state in the country to mandate post-consumer recycled plastic content standards for California Refund Value (CRV) beverage containers. My efforts were featured in a KQED television special last month, California’s Plastic Problem. I hope you watch it.
