Testifying on the Cursive Bill

Cursive Testimony.jpg

On Wednesday, I testified before the Assembly Committee on State Affairs for my cursive bill, AB 459. As I have explained in several interviews, social media posts, and recent newsletters, the ability to read and write in cursive is a fundamental skill that is great for the developing mind of our youth. Studies for many years have shown how much more beneficial cursive is compared to print and typing. Regardless of technological advancement and the importance of understanding the basics of using a computer, cursive writing has historical importance and tremendous professional and educational advantages. Based on the responses to my testimony from several of the committee members, I believe many of them agree. I am hopeful that this bill will pass out of committee and make its way to the full Assembly soon.
