Agnos, Art: Farm worker legislation


Art Agnos: One of the biggest pieces of legislation to pass during the time that Leo was the speaker and George was the Senate Majority Leader was farm worker legislation. Jerry Brown was in the Governor’s office, and it was time to deal with the issues that Cesar Chavez had brought to the attention of this country and certainly this state. And these two progressive leaders who had had their own political differences in the city, coming from slightly different orientations came together and made sure we had one of the strongest farm worker protection bills that became law in the history of this state.
