Long Beach Assemblyman Patrick O'Donnell (D-70) is home from his sixth year in the state legislature — one he calls the strangest yet.

"It definitely is unprecedented," O'Donnell said in an interview last week. "It was interrupted by COVID; we started, stopped, then started again.

"I'd have to say it wasn't marked by the quantity of the legislation, but by the quality," he added. "There were fewer bills, but they were more effective."
