He also authored Assembly Bill 417, which lessened the processes needed to authorize bike lanes in urbanized areas. He authored Assembly Bill 513, which expands the use of rubberized asphalt (made from waste tires) in roads and other transportation projects. And he authored Assembly Bill 1336, which provides the state with added enforcement powers necessary to ensure that workers are paid mandated wages.[1]
