    On Monday, January 11th, the California State Legislature convened for the 2021 Legislative Session – the first year of the two-year 2021/2022 Session. Per usual, the first several weeks of the new Session were filled with Legislators getting settled in, firming up staff, and working to fill their “bill packages” for the new Session. With the late-February legislative deadline for new bill introduction now passed and the smoke now cleared, we have finalized the positive proactive bills we will bring forward and are now also aware of most of the challenges we will face this year.

    This Gaines & Associates “California State Legislature – 2021 Session Update” will provide you with a summary and status of all legislation of interest and concern to California’s wildlife and conservation community.

    To set the stage, note that all legislation must be in print for at least 30 days before it can be amended or heard in committee – giving us time to be sure that we are aware of all bills of concern before they are brought up for their first hearing. However, once bills have been in print for 30 days, amendments can be taken at any time and bills quickly heard with little notice. With April 30th being the last day for policy committees to hear and report to Fiscal Committee fiscal bills introduced in their house, the next several weeks will be hectic as we determine which bills are of concern to our community and scramble to prepare for numerous committee hearings.

    Bills are placed in numerical order, not in order of priority or interest.

    This Gaines & Associates “California State Legislature – 2021 Session Update” 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 311 (Ward) – Firearms: Gun Shows
    AB 311 by Assembly Member Christopher M. Ward (D/78-San Diego) would prohibit a vendor at a gun show or event from possessing, displaying, offering to sell, selling, or transferring any firearm precursor parts. Among other things, the bill would make a violation of these provisions a misdemeanor and prohibit a vendor who has been convicted of violating these provisions from participating in any gun show or event in California for one year after the date of the conviction.

    AB 311 is yet another attempt to take firearms out of the hands of law-abiding citizens by making firearm parts more difficult and expensive to obtain. Further, not only would AB 311 dump additional duties on an already overloaded Department of Justice (DOJ), it would also open the door for government crossreferencing of parts purchased to what firearms an individual has registered in his/her name – possibly making innocent law-biding gunowners victims of senseless criminal investigations.

    AB 311 is set to be heard in the Assembly Public Safety Committee on Tuesday, April 6th. That hearing will begin at 1:30 PM. To view the hearing agenda and/or for information on how you can provide remote testimony or watch the livestream of the event, click
