Sacramento, CA –In the capitol, Friday, June 4th was the last day for the Assembly and State Senate to pass bills introduced in that house. This is known as the House of Origin Deadline. While some good bills did not make the deadline this year, many important pieces of legislation passed the Assembly floor and have been forwarded to the Senate.
Among these are several of the bills that I authored or co-authored this session, including AB 692 which extends the funding deadline for the Disaster and Flood Prevention Bond Act of 2006 to June 30, 2028 in order to fund critical disaster preparedness projects for the Lake Wohlford Dam , and SB 390 which requires EDD to prepare and implement comprehensive plans for increased benefit claims during economic recessions.
I am also encouraged to see several wildfire prevention bills move forward, including AB 267 which extends the sunset date on CEQA exemptions for fuel reduction projects on federal lands, and AB 431 which extends the sunset date for defensible space exemptions around homes.
Lastly, important public safety legislation has passed the Assembly, including AB 331, which extends the sunset date for the California Highway Patrol’s Property Crime Task Force so that the CHP can continue investigating organized retail theft.
These are just a few of the bipartisan bills moving forward in the Legislature this year.
