Bills in Committee and Legislative Hearings of Interest March 20 – April 5

March 17, 2017
The legislative policy committee schedule is ramping up and the League is tracking numerous bills affecting cities. 
 
The League is working on its legislative bills of interest to cities, which will be published once available.
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.
 
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.
