June 16, 2010 (Sacramento) – AB 2674, a bill authored by Assemblyman Marty Block (D-Lemon Grove) has passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on the consent calendar and will now go to the full Senate for a floor vote.
“AB 2674 is an important piece of legislation that arose from a terrible tragedy when an individual solicited the murder of their spouse. Individuals should never profit from criminal activity,” said Block, who introduced the bill to prevent a person who solicits murder of their spouse from sharing the injured spouse’s property. “AB 2674 is simple in concept, yet will have a lasting impact on the spouses and families that are affected,” Block concluded. “I am proud to carry this common sense legislation because it will keep spouses from enduring further pain when these horrific events occur.”
If approved by the State Senate, the measure, which has already passed the Assembly, will go to the Governor for signature.
