Ms. King Goes to Sacramento

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - Carole King joined recording artists representing all genres of pop music in Sacramento, California on Wednesday (January 23, 2002) to support Senate bill 1246. The bill would eradicate a subsection of the California Labor Code which specifically excludes recording artists from protections offered to everyone else in the state.

Joining King in the effort were Don Henley, Sheryl Crow, Ray Parker, Jr., Stevie Nicks, Paul Doucette (Matchbox Twenty), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), the Deftones and Dexter Holland (Offspring). Also present in support of the recording artists' effort were state and national labor leaders.
