Bills in Committee: April 15–19

April 15, 2013
The League will be closely monitoring many key bills this week, including AB 1080, which addresses community revitalization, AB 440, which relates to brownfields, and SB 56, which addresses lost vehicle license fees for newly incorporated cities and cities with recently annexed inhabited areas.
Also this week, the League will be monitoring committees scheduled to hear other bills of interest to cities, which were on our recently released bills of interest list. The League will report any actions of significance.
The Assembly and Senate both convened today for a floor session at 12 p.m. Many legislative hearings are available online for video or audio monitoring. A full listing of all Senate and Assembly hearings is available online. Hearing times are subject to change.
Bill language and any available position letters can be found on the League’s website by typing the bill number into the search box.
