Charter Currents: Anti-Charter Legislation Sidetracked, Budget Negotiations Ongoing

Assemblymember O’Donnell moved his anti-charter legislation, AB 1316, to the Inactive File in yesterday’s Assembly floor session. This likely means the bill is “dead” for this calendar year, but technically could be taken up next year in the second year of the two-year legislative cycle. Meanwhile, budget committees in both houses of the Legislature reached an unusual, early agreement on a budget package with several significant differences relative to the Governor’s May Revise proposals.
