As millions of Californians endure financial hardship and fall prey to pandemic-inspired frauds and scams, Assemblywoman Suzette Martinez-Valladares, R-Santa Clarita, held a seminar Friday in an effort to provide tools that safeguard personal and financial information.
“Hard-working Californians need relief now,” said Assemblywoman Suzette Valladares, R- Santa Clarita, in a statement released via social media. “We must suspend the gas tax immediately to ease the pain at the pump. Other states have suspended their gas taxes and prices dropped within hours. Californians deserve the same immediate relief.”
“Crime victims shouldn’t have to fend for themselves while navigating our complex legal system,” Valladares said. “My common-sense proposals will ensure that crime victims’ voices will be heard and respected during the parole process, regardless of Gascón’s dangerous and misguided policies.”
"I think Republicans have been very clear that we are asking for a 'gas tax holiday.' Families want to feel that immediate reprieve at the pump," Martinez Valladares said, adding, "We all know that the gas tax in California is regressive. It affects, I think, communities of color most. It affects working-class families most."
“From crime to homelessness to better opportunities for their kids, there is no shortage of quality-of-life issues,” Assemblymember Suzette Valladares said in a video released by the caucus. “It just costs too much to live yet alone thrive in California.”  
"Gas prices are out of control. Let's suspend the gas tax, stop using foreign oil and focus on energy independence policies that don't place new burdens on working families," said Republican Assemblymember Suzette Martinez Valladares, who issued the Republican "prebuttal" to Newsom's speech. "We must end the energy policies that punish Californians while rewarding countries like Russia and China for their bad behavior."  
Assemblymember Suzette Martinez Valladares said: “Like Californians across the state, I am disgusted by Putin’s thuggish and unlawful invasion of Ukraine."
“That’s really inspiring for young women in politics and business because it’s not always easy,” Valladares said. “And when you have examples like Cheri Fleming that are leaders in our community, that are mentors for our women and our girls in our community, we are in good hands.”
Assemblywoman Suzette Martinez Valladares, R-Santa Clarita, announced that her bill to increase access to state child care services and preschools passed the Assembly floor with no opposition. Assembly Bill 321 would make low-income dual-language learners eligible for priority enrollment.
