Organizations Rally to Oppose SB 594

August 23, 2013
The recent gut-and-amend measure is adamantly opposed by a growing number of coalition members. Today the coalition delivered an SB 594 (Hill) opposition letter to every legislator in the State Capitol. 
 
Cities, local agencies and various government organizations oppose the bill in droves because of its significant broad implications that curtail the effectiveness of local government advocates. More information is available on the League’s SB 594 Hot Issues website, including a sample position letter and a complete list of the opposition coalition members. To join the opposition coalition, contact League Legislative Representative Natasha Karl.
 
Be Heard
 
SB 594 is currently pending in the Assembly Appropriations Committee. A hearing date for the bill has been set for Friday, Aug. 30. The League strongly urges city officials and fellow opposition stakeholders to personally call their Assembly representative — especially if they are on the committee roster below. Determine your representative here by entering your voting address.
 
For those who decide to call, the League’s sample opposition letter and SB 594 fact sheet are available online as talking points.
