California Legislature Adjourns
The California Legislature adjourned in the early hours of September 16.
Bills passed in the late-night session include Senate Bill 568, which would move the presidential primary election to March; Assembly Bill 249, which would require campaign advertisements to clearly display their largest funders; and Assembly Bill 132, which would require counties to provide additional voter education and requires every signature of a recall petition to be examined and verified.
The bills are now waiting for Gov. Jerry Brown’s signature or veto.
