Legislature Faces Fiscal Committee Deadline Next Friday

This week, the California Legislature maintained a steady pace of committee and floor activities as it approaches a series of upcoming deadlines. Today marks the last day for policy committees to meet prior to June 3, and next Friday marks the last day for fiscal committees to hear and report to the floor bills introduced in their house of origin.

Both the Senate and Assembly Appropriations Committees will hold suspense file hearings next Thursday where hundreds of bills will be considered. Many bills are expected to advance to the floor, where many more will be held on suspense and become two-year bills.

The Legislature over the coming weeks will be increasingly immersed in the budget process, particularly given Governor Gavin Newsom’s release of the May Revision yesterday.
