Denim A Step Closer To Becoming California’s State Fabric

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Pull out those jean jackets, California, because lawmakers are sending Gov. Jerry Brown a bill to designate denim as the state’s fabric.

With the two-year legislative session deadline looming at midnight and hundreds of bills left to vote on, lawmakers took time Wednesday afternoon to debate whether jeans are the right fit for California.

Republican Assemblywoman Shannon Grove of Bakersfield rose to ask whether there was a connection between AB501, 501 jeans, Levi’s and the first four letters of the bill author’s last name – Democratic Assemblyman Marc Levine of San Rafael. He says there is not.

Democratic Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez of San Diego asked whether the California Wool Growers’ Association had any stance. Levine says there is no opposition.

The Assembly approved the measure 59-3.
