Calif. Assemblyman Evan Low (D) introduced a bill this week to create a universal basic income in the state, giving residents over 18-years-old $1,000 per month.
Low introduced AB 2712 on Thursday, and invoked former 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang in his announcement of the measure. Yang had also pushed to create a universal basic income as a key part of his platform and also proposed giving $1,000 per month.
Yang ended his presidential campaign earlier this month. The candidate, often considered a longshot, successfully outlasted other, more high-profile contenders.
