California Legislature Adjourns
The California Legislature adjourned late last week, just in time for today’s recall election of Gov. Newsom.
The trifecta government passed close to 900 bills this year as Democratic lawmakers utilized a budget surplus to enact many progressive policies such as police reform, health care for undocumented immigrants, and climate change.
Assembly bills 319 and 1367 are on Newsom’s desk awaiting signature.
AB 319 prevents a foreign government or principal from making a contribution or expenditure to a candidate for state or local office.
While AB 1367, raises the penalty for a person who uses campaign funds that results in an egregious personal benefit to an amount up to three times the amount of the unlawful expenditure.
