Legislative Deadlines

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

May and June are busy months in the Legislature as both the Assembly and Senate have to meet legislative deadlines to pass bills out of policy and fiscal committees and out of their respective houses.

The Assembly and Senate Appropriations Committee met their May 25 fiscal deadline and passed hundreds of bills to their respective floors. The Assembly Appropriations Committee placed hundreds of bills on the "Suspense File" (bills that cost the State over $150,000 are placed on the Appropriations "Suspense File"). The majority of the measures on the "Suspense File" were significantly amended to bring their costs down and were passed out of the Appropriations Committee.

The Senate and Assembly must also meet the "House of Origin" deadline to pass all bills off their respective floors and to the other house by June 1.

Several important bills to CLFP are still in play, including Assembly Bill 1532, that allocates funds from the AB 32 Cap-and-Trade Program for various programs that are not necessary to cost-effectively implement the market-based trading mechanism under AB 32.
