The bill would impose a fine of up to $2,000 on those convicted of using a government-owned computer or network to produce or view obscene material involving minors. Revenue from this fine will be distributed to sexual assault investigator training, high technology crime task forces, direct services for victims of human trafficking, and related multi-disciplinary teams.
Assembly Member Marie Waldron (R-Escondido), and former Escondido deputy mayor, developed AB 20 after a League Annual Conference Resolution

The League’s support letter is available on the League’s website
by typing “AB 20” into the search box.
