Bills in Committee May 22 – 26

May 19, 2017
Late May is a busy time in the Capitol.
 
May 26 is the last day for fiscal policy committees to send bills to the floor and a week later is the June 2 House of Origin deadline. The Legislature will only hold floor sessions between May 30 and June 3.

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.
