Senate and Assembly Committees Decide on Fiscal Measures; Prepare for Final Floor Votes

September 6, 2017
Legislators are set to vote on hundreds of measures in these final two weeks of the 2017 Legislative Session.
 
Last Friday, the members of the Appropriations Committees of both houses decided the fate of measures that require significant funding or appropriations. They approved many measures including some with amendments and now move to the Senate and Assembly floors, and listed below as “Pass.” Others were “Held” on “Suspense,” meaning they are tabled and ineligible for further action this session.

Below is a complete listing of all bills on which the League has adopted a position that were pending this week on either the Senate or Assembly Appropriations Suspense Files. To access bill language, the League’s position letters and sample letters, please visit www.cacities.org/billsearch and plug in the bill number into the search function.
