Take Action Brief

September 2020-Governor's Desk Special Edition

The 2019-2020 California Legislative Session has been one for the history books. Facing a pandemic and catastrophic wildfires, State Legislators were left to navigate uncharted waters. They were forced to adapt on the fly, changing the rules of the Legislature to allow for remote voting, and regularly rescheduled hearings, and deadlines in order to meet constitutional deadlines and respond to the crises facing state and local agencies, businesses, families, and others.

Despite these challenges the State Legislature endured and passed a number of significant bills that will impact special districts, their employees, and the communities they serve. Included in this month’s brief is a list of bills that passed the Legislature and are awaiting Governor Gavin Newsom’s signature or veto. Also included is a list of notable bills that failed passage in the last month of session
