Following strong opposition from a state-wide coalition of over 500 public and private entities, including MuniServices, AB 1250 (Jones-Sawyer), a bill to restrict county contracts for personal services, never made it to the Governor’s desk in 2017. Instead, it was referred to the Senate Rules Committee. AB 1250 is down, but not out. Potential restrictions on service contracts remain a critical issue for counties, and potentially for cities and other local agencies. AB 1250 will impose complex and burdensome restrictions and requirements that are both unprecedented under and inconsistent with established law.
