Legislature on Fast Track

Despite the holiday weekend, the Senate conducted budget hearings throughout the Memorial Day weekend, and with the shortened week this week, they also wrapped up their policy committee hearings. As you may recall, the Assembly returned to Sacramento a week earlier than the Senate, so there was some catch-up to do in the upper chamber. No policy hearings of note occurred on bills of interest to CHEAC. The Assembly was focused on their Committee of the Whole to debate State budget proposals (please see our budget update for more details). Next week’s legislative hearings will pivot to the houses’ respective Appropriations Committees with the Senate convening on Monday and the Assembly to take up their bills on Tuesday.
