We’re at a critical point in our state legislature’s calendar.
At this time during the session, thousands of bills are making a mad dash to hit the “fiscal committee” deadline. This means that bills that don’t hit this deadline are essentially “dead” in the process and will not proceed to the Governor’s desk for a signature into law.
For Angelo’s bill, AB 490, we’ve just learned that his bill has been placed on the California State Senate Appropriations’ Suspense file. To ensure that Angelo’s bill continues in the legislative process and heads toward Governor Newsom’s desk, we need YOUR voice in making direct phone calls into Senator Portantino’s office over the next week.
