The Legislature concludes its business on Friday, August 31st, so the final stretch of this year’s Legislative Session is upon us. The Senate and Assembly Appropriations Committees met on Thursday, August 16th to review Suspense File bills, and the final two weeks will involve hearing bills that were approved by the Appropriations Committees on the Senate and Assembly Floors. The following is a summary of legislation on the CASH bill list that was approved by the Appropriations Committees, with the exception of AB 2570 (Nazarian) regarding Mandatory Use of Green Cleaning Products, which was held in the Senate Appropriations Committee. Some bills were amended in the Appropriations Committees, and CASH will have more information on the amendments when it becomes available.
CASH will report next in two weeks when the Legislature concludes its business for the year on August 31st and after September 30th, which is the last day that the Governor has to sign or veto bills passed by the Legislature. The CASH advocacy team will be making a full presentation on all legislative and regulatory issues during the Fall Conference in Newport Beach on Wednesday, October 17, 2018.
