SACRAMENTO - The California State Assembly observed May as Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) Heritage Month today with the adoption of Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR) 135 and a special Floor ceremony featuring the presentation of the Fourth Annual Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Awards. Awards were presented to prominent APIs who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of arts and entertainment, medicine, business, civil rights, community service and journalism.
