Bad bills fail to move

The deadline for "fiscal" bills to move out of policy committees is April 27.  Some bills have either been abandoned by the author, amended to another purpose, or have failed after hearing.  But there is no guarantee that the ideas will not later appear in budget trailer bills, or be amended into bills moving through with other content. We will stay vigilant.

The following CMTA “oppose” bills are not moving forward at this time:

  • AB 2166 (Mike Feuer, D-Los Angles) a spot bill to impose fees to fund the "Green Chemistry Program";
  • AB 1627 (Roger Dickinson, D-Sacramento) prohibits building permits unless the locality confirms compliance with a 30-year plan for environmental goals;
  • AB 2051 (Nora Campos, D-San Jose) sets a deadline for the Department of Public Health to establish maximum contaminant levels for Chrome 6 in drinking water;
  • AB 1543 (Luis Alejo, D-Salinas) requires state government to contract only with suppliers who use materials substantially produced in America;
  • SB 982 (Noreen Evans, D-Santa Rosa) requires corporate disclosure to shareholders regarding political giving; and
  • AB 2217 (Richard Pan, D-Sacramento) requires call center employees to identify their location and transfer callers to a location in the United States, upon request.
