Governor Gray Davis proclaimed this week a special session of the State Legislature to act on legislation that will allow the California Coastal Commission to continue to regulate development along California's 1,100 mile coastline.

The Governor's legislation will be introduced in two companion bills by Senator Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Barbara) and Assemblymember Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara). Under the legislation, the appointees of the legislative leaders will be given fixed 2-year terms.

The special session is scheduled to begin on Friday, January 24. The Governor has indicated he expects the bills to reach his desk next week.
