â€œI applaud the Governorâ€™s approval of this important measure. This new law will protect the California National Guard members who are currently enrolled in a higher education institution when they are ordered to perform active military duty,â€ said Senator Correa. â€œNow, these brave men and women can rest assured that they will not be academically or financially penalized for performing their service to the people of California.â€
