各位朋友:


请大家去 https://www.change.org/petitions/state-sen-darrell-steinberg-establish-a-bipartisan-committee-to-investigate-sca-5-in-a-transparent-way 上签名督促当局就SCA5成立公开性质的committee。


3/25 加州民主党西非裔党团声称要在参众两院成立一个commission去调查SCA5提案牵涉的大学招生,入学和防止在校生流失等问题。commission 是顾问性质的(advisory), 因此其成员是指定的,开会也不用记录,完全有暗箱操作的嫌疑。


普通人很难区分开commission(非公开)和committee(公开)的概念的。而此时,以Hernandez为首的支持SCA5的民主党人抛出这样一个令人混淆的概念,不免令人揣测其居心。


现在我们要做的,就是督促当局成立一个Joint  Selected Committee来做这件事,其中成员包括参议员,众议员,民主党人和共和党人,所有会议内容将是被记录的。我们汲取SCA5静悄悄的在参议院通过的教训,我们要求公正和公开的调查。


Establish a Bipartisan Committee to Investigate SCA 5 in a Transparent Way

Petition by

Silicon Valley Chinese Association


We write to urge you to establish a bipartisan committee to investigate SCA 5 in a transparent way.


As you know, SCA 5 is a constitutional amendment that would encourage racial discrimination in California’s public education systems.  Such State-sponsored discrimination will stir up racial hostilities in California.


SCA 5 was passed in the Senate strictly along the partisan line.  No responsible citizen would like to see such a result—it is bad for California and America.


We appreciate the effort of our legislators that resulted in a joint statement regarding SCA 5 on March 17, 2014, which temporarily put SCA 5 on hold.  We trust that this action embodied true political wisdom rather than short-term interest in votes.


The joint statement aimed “to have an honest and thoughtful conversation.”  Yet, it also stated that “a bicameral commission” would be formed and “the charge and membership of the commission [would] be determined by the Speaker and Senate President pro tem.”


With all due respect, this proposed commission will unlikely be bipartisan, given the political reality within our state legislature.   In fact, Senator Bob Huff publicly commented that none of the Republican Senators had been invited to this commission, and any “meeting [would] likely be convened as a lopsided testimony in an attempt to lead the public to the conclusion that the concepts found in SCA 5 are good for California.” (http://district29.cssrc.us/content/huff-weekly-capitol-comment-163).


We are deeply concerned about this dire situation.  We urge you to act as a responsible legislator for all Californians and establish a truly bipartisan committee—rather than a “bicameral commission”—to thoroughly investigate SCA 5 in a transparent way. Thank you.


Sincerely,

Silicon Valley Chinese Association
