You are invited to a community celebration in support of Free Community College in San Mateo County, through Senate Bill 893, which is authored by Sen. Josh Becker and co-authored by Assemblymembers Kevin Mullin and Marc Berman.
This bill has been passed by both chambers of the California Legislature and awaits the Governor’s signature.
SB 893 will allow the San Mateo County Community College District to use its existing local funds to pay for enrollment fees, books, educational materials and supplies, and basic needs costs such as transportation, food and housing for students most in need. Current law restricts the use of general fund dollars for such items, and SB 893 will make college more accessible and affordable in San Mateo County.
