Students at Archbishop Mitty H.S. are in full swing preparing for 2010 Catholic Lobby Day. After careful analysis the California Catholic Conference chose the legislative action items for 2010:
- A.B. 1642 Food Stamps
- S.B. 399 Youth Sentencing
- S.B. 1460 Dream Act
- State Budget
Our students are well versed in S.B. 399 as an issue from 2009 Catholic Lobby Day and A.B. 1642 is one of the main issues chosen for the year to combat rising hunger rates in our area.
This past Thursday, April 15th students met with official and visited several food shelters in the San Jose area to research and gather necessary data in preparation for this legislation.
Here is the link for the California Catholic Conference 2010 Catholic Lobby Day. The schedule of events for Tuesday, April 27th can be accessed on the same link.
