The Legislature is scheduled to reconvene this month, albeit on different days. The Assembly will return May 4, 2020, and the Senate on May 11, 2020. The Governor is scheduled to release a new budget on May 14, 2020.
The Assembly will hold a policy committee hearing for the first three weeks of May. Policy committees will be allowed only one hearing and the Chair will decide how many bills will be heard. Some committees are restricting their hearings only to COVID-19 or Economic Recovery related bills, others are not. Public participation will be limited. All hearings will be webcast.
The Community Associations Institute’s California Legislative Action Committee’s (CAI-CLAC) all-volunteer board voted to establish The Duncan McPherson Memorial Scholarship in 2016. The scholarship is based on McPherson’s long-standing work with community associations and his support of CAI-CLAC. The scholarship provides financial support for an association homeowner or manager to attend the 2020 CAI-CLAC Legislative Days at the Capitol, held on Monday, March 30 and Tuesday, March 31, 2020 in Sacramento, CA.
