Sacramento– Assemblyman Curt Hagman’s Assembly Bill 2358, which would authorize the construction of a memorial statue honoring President Ronald Reagan in the State Capitol Building Annex, has been signed by Governor Brown.
AB 2358, co-authored by every republican in the Senate and Assembly, establishes the approval to begin constructing a memorial statue paying tribute to one of the most influential leaders in both our state and country’s history. President Reagan deserves to be honored for his significant political presence in California’s Capitol.
Assembly Bill 2358 is supported by the Reagan Family, The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library, the Reagan Legacy Foundation as well as dozens of politicians, friends and former staffers of President Reagan.
“I am proud to sign Assembly Bill 2358 in honor of Ronald Reagan,” Governor Brown wrote in a signing statement. “I served as Secretary of State when he was Governor.”
At no cost to the taxpayers, AB 2358 will be funded entirely through private donations.
AB 2358 successfully passed through the legislature with overwhelming bipartisan support and with the governor’s signature, President Reagan will now be rightfully honored in the building that ignited his political existence.
“I thank Governor Brown and my colleagues from both houses for helping to honor such a deserving and significant individual,” said Assemblyman Curt Hagman. “I am privileged to have carried such a necessary and appropriate bill.”
