Bills in Committee and Legislative Hearings of Interest June 20 – July 5

June 16, 2017
The Legislature has been busy this week with legislative hearings and the FY 2017-18 budget.
 
Legislative hearing committees are continuing as bills are moving through their second houses. The League continues to track numerous bills affecting cities. Some hearings, if not all, will be televised. The Senate and Assembly publish weekly television schedules, but audio is always available online. In addition, many hearings are also webcast via the California Channel.

Additional information about the important bills the League is tracking is available in the Update: 2017 Bill Status. Published on May 26, this list will continually be updated throughout the remainder of the Legislative Session. Bill language and the League’s position letters and sample letters can be found at www.cacities.org/billsearch by plugging the bill number into the search function.
