California Legislature Completes Session for the History Books

In the early morning hours of Tuesday, the California Legislature concluded its 2019-20 Regular Legislative Session, marking the end of a tumultuous and historic session repeatedly interrupted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Legislators were met with significant time constraints, challenges associated with remote voting, and contentious policy and process debates leading up to the conclusion of session.

CHEAC Staff is pleased to bring you our CHEAC End of Session Memo which highlights actions of interest to California’s local health departments. A bill chart reflecting all legislative action is linked in the memo and available here.

Governor Gavin Newsom now has until September 30 to sign or veto bills passed by the Legislature on or before September 1. CHEAC will issue a final bill chart following the Governor’s September 30 deadline.
