Capitol Weekly Podcast: Asm. Mike Gipson

Assemblyman Mike Gipson (D) represents the 64th Assembly District, which includes communities that are among some of those hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic: Carson, Compton, Gardena, South Los Angeles, Torrance and Watts. Gipson is the chair of the committee on Infectious Diseases, and introduced AB1038, a bill to create a $180 million California Health Equity Fund that would address health and social inequities that have been exacerbated by COVID-19. He joined Capitol Weekly’s John Howard and Tim Foster to talk about AB1038, and his other priorities, including AB490, the Angelo Quinto Act, which would ban the use of chokeholds by police.
