On Friday, September 11, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom signed AB 1945 which reclassified Public Safety Dispatchers in the State of California as First Responders.
It passed State Assembly 74-0. It passed State Senate 23-0.
This is one step closer to the Federal Office of Management and Budget recognizing and supporting the federal reclassification.
