June Update on Legislation

The California Legislature is at the halfway point.  By the end of this week, bills need to pass the house in which they were introduced in order for them to remain alive this year.  For example, Assembly Bills (AB) must pass the State Assembly by this week in order for them to be heard and voted on in the State Senate.  The same applies to Senate Bills (SB), of course; they must pass the State Senate by the end of this week in order to be considered by the State Assembly.  Most bills that do not pass the house of origin deadline this week can be considered at the beginning of 2022.  Others will have failed and are considered dead.

AIA California took positions on 45 bills this year, so far.  There are other bills that have become relevant to AIA California with amendments, and will be reviewed shortly.

Here is a status update on those original 45 bills.

Of the 45 bills, 25 remain alive and are still moving through the process.  15 bills have been put on hold until 2022, and 5 have failed passage and are dead.
