KEYT: Bill to prevent harassment outside health clinics signed

September 10, 2013

Gov. Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 340 authored by state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) that will protect women from harassment and intimidation as they seek reproductive health care.

The bill removes a Jan. 1 sunset date on the current Reproductive Rights Law Enforcement Act.   Under the Act, the attorney general is required to gather information related to anti-reproductive rights crimes.
