Schwarzenegger Signs Bill to Build a Memorial for Genocide Survivors

SACRAMENTO–Governor Schwarzenegger Monday announced the signing of AB 1210 by Lloyd Levine (D-Van Nuys) that authorizes the construction of a memorial for California’s genocide survivors in Capitol Park. "We should never forget the inhumanity and brutality of genocide," said Governor Schwarzenegger. "The construction of this memorial will help all Californians remember the unimaginable suffering genocide survivors endured." AB 1210 establishes the International Genocide Memorial Commission. It also authorizes the construction of a memorial to California’s genocide survivors in the Capitol Historic Park. The bill prohibits the expenditure of state funding for both the Genocide Memorial Commission and the construction of the memorial.
