On March 20, 2019, CYLA members attended the inaugural CLA Legislative Day in Sacramento. Speakers included Assembly members Mark Stone (pictured) and Ash Kalra, Senators Hannah-Beth Jackson and Andreas Borgeas, Cory Jasperson of the Judicial Council of California, and Che Salinas of Governor Gavin Newsom’s Office. A major topic of conversation this year was the State Bar’s legislative proposal to increase the mandatory licensing fee for active attorneys from $383 to $813 in 2020. CLA has prepared a fact sheet summarizing this legislative proposal, which is available here. CLA’s Director of Governmental Affairs can be reached here.
