The Friday Night Status Report

GOOD NEWS: Senate passed SJR10 to rescind Article 5 Convention of States.

GOOD NEWS: They pulled two “sanctuary state” bills AB357, SB223.
SB319 and SB389 are still in contention. These two and SB333 are still in committee.

GOOD NEWS: The guv vetoed IP1, motor voter.
However, because it is an IP, it will still go on the ballot in 2018.

Upcoming Bills

This page shows the list of meetings and the list of  bills scheduled to be heard next week, as of Friday night of this week. Note that the schedules and agendas are subject to change. If you have a PLT account, you will receive a flood of e-mails to notify you of the changes, or you can regularly look on the PLT home page to see the schedule for the day.

This page also shows the list of bills that I and others have flagged as being of special interest to us. Needless to say, these are the bills that we’d comment on first.

New Comments This Past Week

This page shows the bills that have excited our LAC members and other contributors enough to send me their comments. (This list can be rather long. Please click on the link to see the lists for each week.)

Comments from Democrats

This is a new page (as of May 7) to share with you comments on important bills that I receive from DEMOCRATS (in lieu of bombarding you with e-mails being forwarded). Yes, that too is important to know…
