On Monday, May 5, 2014, the California Assembly Rules Committee will vote on AJR 32 (Assembly joint resolution No.32). This would be the first time that the state of California takes an official position on the independence of the Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh. This joint resolution also urges the President and Congress of the United States to support the self- determination and democratic independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) said.
The groundbreaking legislation was submitted by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles).
The Assembly urges the Armenians of California to write to the Assembly Members serving on the Assembly Rules Committee NOW and urge that they VOTE IN FAVOR of AJR 32.
