Recently, appropriations committees for the California State Senate and Assembly individually met to dispense with 766 bills on the “suspense file” — a list of “fiscal bills” with estimated costs above a specific threshold.
These thresholds are: $150,000 for the assembly; $50,000 for the general fund; and $150,000 for any special fund for the senate. These fiscal bills are held until the suspense file is heard.
A handful of bills the California Credit Union League either supports or opposes were heard (note that many bills are amended as of now) — with some positive wins!
Sacramento is now less than one week away from the end of the state legislative session. Below are bills the League is currently working on (includes last name of legislative authors):
