Bill: AB 755 - Prohibition of Spanking
Author: Assembly Member Sally Lieber
Position: Strongly Oppose
Status: In Assembly
***** ***** ***** *****

This is an UPDATE to our previous, April 11, 2007, Action Alert
regarding Assembly Member Sally Lieber's "Prohibition of Spanking"
bill, AB 755.

AB 755 continues to move through the Legislature. AB 755 was amended
and passed by the Assembly Public Safety Committee on April 17th. AB
755 is still a very dangerous bill for parents throughout California.

AB 755 would have the practical effect of making a non-injurious
spanking with an object such as a ruler, folded newspaper, paddle,
etc. illegal. After being arrested, charged, and tried in a criminal
court, parents could receive up to one year in jail and lose custody
of their children.

We updated our "AB 755 - Action Alert" and our 4-page backgrounder,
"AB 755 - Updated Alert Supplement" on April 24, 2007. Both the
Updated Alert and the Updated Alert Supplement are posted at and

These two documents are designed to help every concerned parent: 1)
to understand this bill and its implications for every family in
California and the nation, and 2) to be able to present the most
effective reasons why such a bill should not be passed by the

AB 755 is an incremental step toward the outlawing of all spanking,
which the author has publicly stated is her ultimate goal.

We will be issuing another Action Alert by e-mail on AB 755 within the
next several weeks, just before AB 755 is sent to the Assembly Floor
for a full vote by every Assembly Member. We are continuing to
monitor AB 755 daily, as we do with all legislation.
