League Hot and Priority Bill End of Session Wrap-Up

September 13, 2013
Lawmakers finished the first half of the 2013–14 legislative session and adjourned early Friday morning after passing some highly contentious measures to the Gov. Jerry Brown. Overall, of the nearly 2,500 measures introduced this year, 1,090 measures reached the Governor — half of which were sent just this week.
The Governor has until Oct. 13 to either sign or veto bills pending before him. Bills not acted upon prior to the deadline automatically become law effective Jan. 1, 2014. Pending legislation not sent to the Governor’s desk this year may become active next year. These measures, known as two-year bills, carry-over to the next session and are given a second chance.
In the final moments of session this week legislators passed several League hot and priority measures that will affect local government. The following list reflects measures the League will be monitoring until the Oct. 13 signing deadline. In the coming days the League will send out sign/veto request alerts where city officials are strongly encouraged to take action on these bills.
