Bills in Committee and Legislative Hearings of Interest March 27 – April 19

March 24, 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.
