SB 7 would prohibit a charter city from receiving or using state funding or financial assistance for a construction project if the city has a voter-approved charter provision or ordinance that authorizes a contractor to not comply with state prevailing wage requirements on local construction projects funded by (non-state) city funds.
Also this week, the League will be monitoring committees scheduled to hear bills of interest to cities, which were on our recently released bills of interest
list. The League will report any actions of significance.
The Assembly convened today at 12 p.m. for a floor session with the Senate starting its floor session at 2 p.m. Today is also the first extraordinary session on call of the Assembly Speaker and Senate Pro Tempore. 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.
Bill language and any available position letters can be found on the League’s website at www.cacities.com/billsearch
