Legislative Update: June 14, 2018

The State Capitol in Sacramento, California. This is a low angle view of the front of the building from the northwest. The American Flag, the California Flag and the POW MIA Flags are flying at half mast.

May and June contain many important deadlines for the state Capitol. May 25th was the final day for bills to pass the fiscal committee in their house of origin. June 1st was the final day for all bills to be approved by a full floor vote in their house of origin. Bills that failed to make it out of their house of origin will no longer move forward.

The next big legislative deadline will be June 29th, when all fiscal bills must pass their policy committees.
