Bills in Committee: April 16 - 20

April 16, 2012

Last week the League published its major bills list that indicated which bills the League is tracking that have significant impacts to local government.


 This week the League will be tracking a number of those bills, including several "hot bills." The below list represents the bills scheduled for hearing this week for which the League currently has a position.

Hot bills are bills that League lobbyists are requesting urgent assistance from cities. City officials are encouraged to send position letters on the below hot bills immediately. All sample letters can be found on the League's website by typing the bill number into the search box.

Many legislative hearings are available online for video or audio monitoring online. A full listing of all Senate and Assembly hearings is available online. Hearing times are subject to change.
