It took less than an hour for the Assembly Appropriations Committee to act on 365 bills. About 220 passed; the rest did not.
California State University; a ban on state workers “moonlighting” second jobs from the same state agency; a “Homeless Person’s Bill of Rights;” a tax on ammunition; and a requirement that condoms be used in porn films.
Among the bills that moved on: a minimum wage increase; a fracking moratorium; driver licenses for undocumented immigrants; in-state college tuition for out-of-state veterans; and tougher requirements for the opening of big-box stores like WalMart. Those measures now face Assembly floor votes next week.
