Bills in Committee and Legislative Hearings of Interest June 12 – 28

June 8, 2017
The Legislative hearing committee schedule is gearing up again with bills having crossed houses last week. 
The Legislature is also focused on the FY 2017-18 budget, which must be sent to Gov. Jerry Brown by June 15. 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 2017 Bills of Interest and Hot Bills List. Published on April 12, 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.
