For the last two legislative sessions in a row, we have faced some of the most historically significant bills since the Davis-Stirling Act came into effect in 1986. And that’s saying a lot considering the Davis-Stirling Act has probably been amended more than a hundred times since it was enacted. This year was especially challenging on legislators, advocates, and citizens wishing to engage in the process, given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the legislative process. It has also demonstrated the need for modernizing the Davis-Stirling Act by allowing for the use of mainstream technology which has become commonplace in our everyday lives.
