Legislative Session Schedule Still Uncertain
As we reported to you last week, the Legislature, scheduled to return this week, extended their recess until July 27 after two Assembly Members and several legislative staffers contracted COVID-19. At this time, the plan remains for members and limited staff to return on Monday, July 27; however, the calendar for legislative hearings still remains uncertain. The Assembly has released their policy committee tentative schedule and have also directed members to consider cutting back the number of bills they move forward. Assembly Members have also been asked to work with Senate Committee staff on priority bills that may be at risk of not advancing. Meanwhile, the Senate, who have the biggest bulk of bills to consider, have not yet released their hearing calendar.
