WHEREAS, Women play a critical role in the vitality and diversity of our communities, and are essential to ensuring California is well-represented;

Resolved by the Assembly of the State of California, the Senate thereof concurring, That the Legislature proclaims March 19 to be California Celebrating Women in Public Office Day; and be it further
Resolved, That the Legislature calls upon the people of California to unite as we support the success of women in public office and observe every March 19 with appropriate activities, events, and programs.
