    Early in the morning of Tuesday, September 1st, the final gavel rang out at our State Capitol, bringing to aclose the two-year 2019/2020 State Legislative Session.

    Although the 2019/2020 State Legislative Session is over, all legislative activity is not complete. The Governor has until September 30th to sign or veto bills that have made it to his desk.

    With several bills of interest remaining at play until the final few days of Session, and the destiny of some waiting until the final few minutes, this Gaines & Associates “California State Legislature – 2019/2020 Legislative Session Wrap-Up” will provide you with the latest status of legislation of interest to California’s wildlife and conservation community.

    In the interest of brevity, this Gaines Report will only provide status on those bills which were alive entering the last month Session, August 2020. For information regarding bills that died prior to August 1, 2020, please see previous Gaines Reports, or contact Gaines & Associates at the email provided below.

    Bills are placed in numerical order, not in order of priority or interest. Any new action taken on a bill since the most recent Gaines Report is depicted in italics.

    This Gaines & Associates “Gaines Report” is client privileged and provided as a service to Gaines & Associates clients.

    For more information on any of the below bills, please contact Gaines & Associates at [email protected]

    AB 2106 (Aguiar-Curry) – Nesting Bird Habitat Incentive Program: Upland Game Bird Stamp/State Duck Stamp – DEAD

    Legislation passed in 2018 required Department of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) to establish the “Nesting Bird Habitat Incentive Program” (NBHIP) and authorized DFW to make payments or provide other incentives to encourage landowners to voluntarily cultivate or retain upland cover crops or other upland vegetation on their idled lands to provide habitat and nesting cover for waterfowl, upland game birds, and other species.

    As amended August 8, 2020, AB 2106 by Assembly Member Cecilia M. Aguiar-Curry (D/4-Davis) would have helped generate the funding necessary to implement the NBHIP by raising the California upland game bird stamp and the state duck stamp by $5 each. AB 2106 would have also created the Nesting Bird Habitat Incentive Program Account within the Fish and Game Preservation Account and required the incremental revenue to be deposited in that Account and available upon appropriation to DFW for the NBHIP. AB 2106 would have also allowed DFW to use NBHIP funds to enter into contracts with nonprofit organizations to further the Program.
