Take Action Brief

March 2020

Between January 1 and the State Legislature’s February 21 deadline to introduce legislation in 2020, legislators authored a total of 2,203 new bills. Just over half (1,120 new bills) were introduced on the final two days prior to the deadline. On March 6, CSDA’s Legislative Committee will begin taking positions on this new legislation. This Take Action Brief offers a first look at the newly proposed laws special districts will be facing this year, with plenty more sure to come in the form of amendments and budget trailer bills. Stay tuned, stay engaged, and be sure to join your colleagues at the 2020 Special Districts Legislative Days, May 19-20 in Sacramento.
