As of mid-July, COVID’s grip on our state and nation is not letting up. Last week, in an effort to minimize the potential exposure and spread of COVID-19 at our State Capitol, Senate President pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins (D/39-San Diego) and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D/63-Lakewood) announced that the date the State Legislature would return from Summer Recess has been backed up from July 13th to Monday, July 27th, 2020.
With the “current” deadline for moving fiscal bills out of policy committee technically still being July 31st
legislative calendar and deadlines will have to be adjusted to accommodate the extended recess. Further – with COVID-19 still raging and the legislative calendar now shortened by an additional two weeks – leadership is likely to once again ask bill authors to pull legislation which is not of critical urgency to California’s public at this time.
This Gaines & Associates “Gaines Report” will provide you with the latest status of all bills of interest, as well as a wrap on the recently approved FY 2020/2021 State Budget. Note that, in the interest of brevity, legislation that was noted as having been pulled from consideration due to the shortened legislative calendar in our last Gaines Report is not listed 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.
