Bills in Committee July 17 – 18

July 13, 2017
The Legislature adjourns on July 21 for its month-long summer recess but between now and then, the Capitol will be extremely busy.
 
The final weeks of this session begin Aug. 21 and then the Legislature will have a few weeks to conclude its work before it adjourns the session on Sept. 15.

The League continues to track numerous bills affecting cities. Some hearings, if not all, will be televised. The Senate and Assembly publish weekly television schedules, but audio is always available online. In addition, many hearings are also webcast via the California Channel.
 
Additional information about the important bills the League is tracking is available in the Update: 2017 Bill Status. Published on May 26, this list will continually be updated throughout the remainder of the Legislative Session. Bill language and the League’s position letters and sample letters can be found at www.cacities.org/billsearch by plugging the bill number into the search function.
