On September 30, 2020, California Governor signed a bill that would create a government task force to study and build plans to dole out reparations for descendants of slaves.
The Washington Free Beacon provided some context to the passage of this bill:
Assembly Bill 3121 makes California the first state to form a task force charged with researching the effects of slavery and creating a plan for reparations. The law—which comes after a summer of racial unrest following the death of George Floyd in May—also requires the group to educate the public on California’s historical involvement with slavery and segregation.
For reparations to go out, subsequent legislation will be needed. This could manifest itself through cash payments or larger spending programs directed to black communities. The bill highlights how any state-funded reparation spending packages should not replace a federal reparations program.
