INDUSTRYWIDE LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE: On behalf of CBPA Chairman Joe Markling, Legislative Chair Stan Lamport, Rex Hime and Matthew Hargrove, attached are legislative bills for review.
We are past the "Bill Introduction Deadline" in the California State Legislature. We have identified over 500 bills impacting our industry – higher than we have seen in many years – we have tried to pare the list back as much as possible. We will also go very quickly over some sections.
Matthew, Rex, and I have reviewed every bill and we have been coordinating with partners. Because of a covid focused session last year, we need your help now more than ever to make sure we have extra eyes and hands where we need to be and not letting anything fall through the cracks. Embedded in the bill list are links to each bill. Please comment for any bill which you recommend we take a position, watch more closely, or can drop altogether.
A quick note on bill positions; A straight “Support” or “Oppose” means we are set in our position and are doing everything possible to support or oppose the bill. “Mon/Oppose” and “Mon/Support” means we are actively working on the bill but are not in a firm oppose or support position at the moment (i.e. we may be working with the author on amendments to fix the bill; or it may not currently have an impact on our industry, but we are monitoring it closely because it is in a code section we care about).
Thank you for your assistance in this process. Your expertise and the expertise you represent at your respective organizations are the backbone to our lobbying and advocacy effort as through this process you help us more effectively represent your interests in the Capitol. Please feel free to forward this to anyone that you feel should review and provide input. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND EFFORTS!
