AB 1831 Held in Senate Governance and Finance Committee

June 29, 2012

On Thursday, the Senate Governance and Finance Committee held AB 1831, which would have required that cities and counties “ban the box” on any initial employment application that asks applicants to provide criminal history information.

 

The bill will not move forward this year. However, Assembly Member Roger Dickinson (D-Sacramento) may pursue the issue again next year.

The League was opposed to the bill unless amended to align it with the existing State Personnel Board policy and to apply the bill to all employers in the state.

The League thanks the many city officials that submitted opposition letters on this bill.
