OPPOSE  AB 1332 (Bonta) Sanctuary State Investment Act.
Significantly limits state and local agencies ability to contract out for a variety of vital public services. Mandates that agencies create an ever-evolving restricted list of private vendors. Constructs an elaborate investigation and vetting process that agencies must adhere to before contracting for services. Creates new avenues for protracted criminal and civil litigation against cities. Would impact operations for virtually every department including police, fire, finance, legal, public works, etc.
Sample City Letter

OPPOSE  AB 1356 (Ting) Cannabis. Local Jurisdictions. Retail Commercial Cannabis Activity.
Requires all local jurisdictions whose voters supported Proposition 64 to issue a minimum number of local licenses for cannabis retail shops. Requires the minimum number of these local licenses issued per jurisdiction to be 25% of the number of liquor licenses. If the ratio is greater than one local retail cannabis license per 10,000 residents of the local jurisdiction, the bill instead requires the minimum number of local licenses to be determined by dividing the number of residents in the local jurisdiction by 10,000 and rounding down to the nearest whole number.
Sample City Letter

SUPPORT  SB 5 (Beall/McGuire) Affordable Housing and Community Development Investment Program.
Creates a local-state partnership to provide up to $2 billion annually to fund state-approved affordable housing, infrastructure, and economic development projects that also support state policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, expand transit oriented development (TOD), address poverty, and revitalize neighborhoods. This measure restores RDA-type ongoing financing for these important projects.

OPPOSE UNLESS AMENDED  SB 50 (Wiener) More HOMES Act (Housing, Opportunity, Mobility, and Stability).
