Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) received the League of California Cities’ 2014 Legislator of the Year award, which was announced today at the League’s 2014 Annual Conference and Expo in Los Angeles. The top honor award was given to the Senator in appreciation for his long-term support for local control and his diligent hard work on behalf of cities. This year the Senator authored SB 1262, a measure that would have created the first statewide regulatory structure for medical marijuana dispensaries. The cities of California remain grateful for his efforts to advocate for regulations that would have retained local governments’ authority to include or ban dispensaries from their jurisdictions.
