SB 1147 Held in Senate Appropriations Committee

by

5.23.2014 SB 1147 (DeSaulnier) CalFresh Performance Goals and Customer Service Standards was held in the Senate Appropriations Committee on Friday, May 23. SB 1147 will not be moving to the Senate Floor. In partnership with Senator DeSaulnier and our co-sponsor SF-Marin Food Bank, CFPA put forward its best effort to address the fiscal concerns raised in the committee analysis. Unfortunately, the modifications and compromise identified were insufficient. CFPA is working with our co-sponsor and key partners to determine next steps. We will follow-up with additional details as they emerge.

We thank you for your ongoing support of SB 1147! While this particular legislative strategy may have proved unsuccessful, we will continue our work in this area and are committed to improving CalFresh performance and customer service on a statewide basis.   

SB 1147 proposed the establishment of statewide, CalFresh performance goals and customer service standards. Additionally, SB 1147 would have required the provision of publicly available, county-by-county measures of progress in meeting these goals and standards.
