Bills in Committee: July 13-17

July 10, 2015
The last full week of policy committees will commence next week, with the Legislature adjourning for summer break on July 17.
 
Both houses return on Aug. 17 for the final weeks of the 2015 legislative session that ends on Sept. 11. The League will continue to be engaged on several more bills, with many of them flagged as Hot, during the week of July 13-17. Cities are encouraged to weigh in on these bills.

The policy committee deadline next Friday marks the beginning of the end stretch of the legislative year. Once the Legislature returns, cities will need to remain vigilant as we enter the time period of increased gut and amends and final negotiations. In addition, the Legislature will be working on the extraordinary session on transportation. The League will be releasing an updated Hot Bills list and sending out updates as frequently as is necessary over the summer break. 
 
To access any bill on this list, the League’s position letter and sample letters, please go to www.cacities.org/billsearch and plug in the bill number into the search box.
 
A full listing of Senate and Assembly hearings is available online. Hearing times are subject to change. Bill language and any available position letters on legislation can be found through the bill search function on the League’s website.
