California Lawmakers Have One More Day to Get Bills Passed

SACRAMENTO — It’s getting down to the wire for California lawmakers.

Friday is the last day for legislators to pass bills during this session.

The Senate adjourned about 6:10 p.m. after, according to President Pro Tempore Kevin De Leon, addressing nearly 70 proposed laws.

De Leon said the Senate has about 120 bills to address Friday.

As of 7 p.m. Thursday, the Assembly was in recess, holding committee meetings and expected to return to the floor Thursday evening.

Several hot topics such as housing legislation and SB54, the so-called “Sanctuary State” bill, are awaiting Assembly action.

Governor Jerry Brown has until October 15 to sign or veto bills passed by the legislature.
