Bills in Committee: May 23-27

May 23, 2016
Budget committee hearings are in full swing as the Legislature debates Gov. Jerry Brown’s May Budget Revision and begins to put together the final budget for FY 2016-17.
In addition, the legislative year is closing in on its half-way point: May 27 is the last day for legislative fiscal committees to hear and report on bills introduced in their houses and June 3 is the last day for each house to pass bills out of the house of origin. As such, the Bills in Committee list this week includes fiscal committees and bills that are pending on the Assembly and Senate Floors. Please note that the Assembly Appropriations Committee Suspense Calendar hearing has not been scheduled but is expected Thursday or Friday. A full listing of Senate and Assembly hearings is available online. Hearing times are subject to change.

Additional information about the important bills the League is tracking is available in the 2016 Hot and Priority Bill List. Published on April 15, this list will continually be updated throughout the remainder of the Legislative Session. Bill language and any available position letters on legislation can be found through the bill search function on the League’s website.
