Local Marketplace gives non-profits a voice and a bounty
Fri June 21, 2013 05:20pm
More than a Friday Farmer’s Market and more than a five-day artisan showcase, the Marketplace at Alpine is now a venue for the voice of the local non-profit community and a source of some revenue.
Kicking off the charity spotlight is BEHOLD, a faith-based organization which is focused on “networking the resources of our community to support the needs of our community”.
This Bill introduced and heard June 4, 2013 in the State Capitol by the Senate Committee on Elections and Constitutional Amendments. It passed committee and now heads to the Senate Floor for a vote. The date has not yet been decided. If it is passed by the Senate, then it goes to Governor Brown for signature. The probable fate of AB131 is predictable given that the committee moving it forward was made up of 5 Democrats and one Republican. The California legislature is predominantly Democrat as is Governor Brown.
