POLICY DEADLINE!

July 1, 2016

Yesterday was one of the major deadlines of the year whereby all bills must be out of policy committee in their second house or they are “dead.” More than fifty four bills that we actively tracked were heard in the past five days. Here is a link to some of those that passed committee we support:

AB 1330 (Bloom – D) Energy efficiency.

AB 1704 (Dodd – D) Water rights: small irrigation use: lake or streambed alteration agreements.

AB 1807 (Bonta – D) Real estate licensees.

AB 1928 (Campos – D) Water efficiency: landscape irrigation equipment.

AB 2180 (Ting – D) Land use: development project review.

AB 2299 (Bloom – D) Land use: housing: 2nd units.

AB 2334 (Mullin – D) Sales and use taxes: exclusion: alternative energy financing.

AB 2515 (Weber – D) Water Conservation in Landscaping Act: model water-efficient landscaping ordinance.

Unfortunately, several bills we opposed also passed committee:

SB 32 (Pavley – D) Would require the State Air Resources Board to approve a statewide greenhouse gas emissions limit that is equivalent to 40% below the 1990 level to be achieved by 2030. This bill contains other related provisions. OPPOSE

SB 1387 (de Leon) Would require a district board to submit to the State Air Resources Board for review and approval the district’s plan for attainment or a revision to that plan, as specified. The bill also would require a district board to submit to the state board for review and approval the district’s market-based incentive program and any revisions to that program, as specified. The bill would prescribe specified actions for the state board to take if the state board determines that a plan for attainment, a revision of a plan for attainment, a market-based incentive program, or a revision to a market-based incentive program do not comply with law. OPPOSE.

AB 1978 (Gonzalez – D) Would establish specific standards and protections for property service workers, to be known as the Property Service Workers Protection Act, and define terms for its purposes. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws. OPPOSE UNLESS AMENDED.
