Bills in Committee and Legislative Hearings of Interest March 13 – 22

March 10, 2017
Legislative committee hearings are continuing and many bills are moving through committees.
 
The League is in the beginning phase of creating its legislative bills of interest to cities, which will be published once available.

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.
 
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.
 
Here are a number of upcoming hearings of interest to cities:
