Things are starting to pick up steam in Sacramento and we will be reporting regularly as legislation and related actions unfolds. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Although the state Capitol remains quiet with only one staffer permitted in the building per legislator, the legislative session has resumed with its usual rigor. Meetings with legislators and staff via teleconference continue, newly introduced legislation is being analyzed, budget hearings began on an expedited timeline. The Department of Finance is slowly releasing trailer bill language clarifying some of the Administration’s January budget proposal, and the Legislative Analyst’s staff is busy making recommendations about how the Legislature should respond to it.
