  • HISTORICAL NOTE: Yvonne and Autumn Burke were the first mother-daughter pair to serve in the California Legislature. 
  • Supreme Court Decision: In June 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a law authored by David Chiu and Autumn Burke, AB 775 (2015), was unconstitutional. The law, which required crisis  pregnancy  centers to inform all clients that California provides free or low-cost services, including abortions, and give them a phone number to call, was found to "unduly burdens protected speech." (National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra, 16–1140)
