Sacramento, CA – The Associated Press reports state lawmakers have approved a hotly contested bill in the Assembly.

The California Assembly approved the high-profile bill Monday on a 52-22 vote. That vote came after a heated debate from both sides of the debate. The AP reports many Republicans were opposed to the bill.
