Governor Signs Into Law Domestic Violence Bill by Monrovia Representative

Governor Brown today signed into law a domestic violence measure authored by Assemblymember Chris Holden, who represents Monrovia.

AB 139 stipulates that those convicted of domestic violence must pay a minimum $500 fee - not a fine - after they are granted probation. "This clarification is important because it would clear up confusion over the $500 payment and ensure funding for local domestic violence programs."
