Bills in Committee: March 26 - 30

March 26, 2012
Last week, AB 1585 (Perez) was passed in the Assembly Local Government Committee as well as the Assembly Appropriations Committee. AB 1585, which contains numerous policy and technical cleanups to the redevelopment dissolution bill, AB 1x 26, will likely be taken up for a floor vote today during the Assembly's floor session scheduled for 11:30 a.m. The Senate has scheduled its floor session at 2 p.m.

City officials are strongly encouraged to send support letters for AB 1585 immediately. The League's support letter and two sample support letters can be found on the League's website by typing "AB 1585" into the search box.

Following is a list of legislation also scheduled for hearing this week for which the League currently has a position. League staff is monitoring these hearings and cities should watch for action alerts announced for priority bills.

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