Legislature Set to Return from Summer Recess, Four Weeks Remain in Year’s Legislative Session

On Monday, the California State Senate and Assembly will return to Sacramento from their month-long summer recess. Our four weeks will remain in the first year of the two-year legislative session upon lawmakers’ Monday return to the capital city.

The next two weeks will be largely dedicated to fiscal committee deliberations and actions; fiscal committees face a deadline of August 27 to meet and report measures to the Senate and Assembly floors. Lawmakers will then have two weeks of floor session only, during which no committees may meet for any purpose.

Legislators, during these remaining weeks, will be working busily to advance priority measures through the legislature and to the desk of Governor Gavin Newsom. The Senate and Assembly are set to adjourn for the remainder of the calendar year on September 10.

Upon the Legislature’s return next week, CHEAC will resume publication of the CHEAC Weekly Bill Chart, providing updates on tracked legislative bills of interest to CHEAC Members and California local health departments.
