Absolutely.  That's exactly what it is designed to be: an incremental step. 
I don't think we can get everything we want all at once.  It's a bill that 
should pass.  As with SB 1438 and SB370, it has limited scope but would be 
an important step....

We do have opportunities for improving the language so I encourage people to 
provide suggestions.  The "bill" has already been sent to legislative 
counsel (couple hours ago).  
It is important to be clearer with the list about deadlines. Your message of 7:39am did not indicate that we had less than 6 hours to produce our own revisions of the proposed bill, and I apparently missed the deadline by 2 hours. Since no one else posted revisions to the list, it would appear that everyone else missed the deadline, too. I don't suppose some people who couldn't work on this until this evening will be all that pleased.
It will look different when it comes back from 
there in about a week.  Then, we can make changes before it's introduced. 
Good. It's a start, but it needs significant revision to fulfill even its limited mission.
...If someone wants a completely different bill, that's possible too.  I think 
this language fits pretty well with what Assemblywoman Goldberg wants to do. 
I have discussed some things about possible bills with Senator Bowen but 
nothing has been decided on that yet.  I need specific language more than 
general ideas about what we need.
That's why I attached a .doc containing my revisions. Please comment on them.
