Sacramento, CA - The Senate and Assembly Appropriations Committees took up the suspense file today. Once they return from the Labor Day weekend, Legislators will have 9 days to get their bills approved by the second house. Bills originating in the Assembly will have to be approved by the Senate, and vice versa, which is the final step in the process before bills head to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk to be signed, vetoed, or to take effect with no action. (Check out CSDC's Legislative Advocacy Roadmap for more context on the legislative process.) Most importantly, this phase is our last chance to pressure legislators to vote "No" on anti-charter legislation.
