Napa Valley Opera House (copy)

The historic Napa Valley Opera House on Main Street, Napa.

This week, the Legislature passed Assembly Bill 436 by Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, D-Winters, that will allow the Napa Valley Opera House non-profit to develop advertising sponsorships with local winemakers, brewers, and distillers.

“AB 436 will allow the Napa Valley Opera House – a cultural and artistic jewel in our community – to raise revenue to maintain the historic building and support community events," Aguiar-Curry said in a news release. "It will also promote local businesses in our Napa economy."

The bill now goes to Gov. Gavin Newsom for his signature.
