Legislation Update

Compiled by Kenneth J. Price*


In my last legislative update (Fall 2013), I showcased numerous bills passed by the Legislature and approved by the Governor that could impact the practices of our State Bar Public Law Section members. Now, as I write this update, the Governor has introduced a proposed budget and we face the very beginning of a flurry of yet more bills affecting public agencies.

Last year, the theme of my updates seemed to be happy times are here again! After several years of declining revenues, thanks in large part to Proposition 30 and an improving economy, the State enjoyed a significant surplus of revenues. As a result, legislators felt compelled to introduce new programs, which translated into efforts to ramp up spending.
