THE BUZZ: Another legislative year ended on Friday night – and the consensus of legislators, staff, lobbyists and sergeants was that this was a fairly quiet last 48 hours.
This word may not apply to the vaccine to protesters who continued massaging and singing outside of the government barricaded the office of Gavin Newsom and then the Senate floor in the most obnoxious manner. CHP officials wrapped yellow tape for the scene in the closed chambers of the Senate and closed a bathroom with red-plastered walls, while dazed residents of the Capitol exchanged rumors. Later, we received the extraordinary sight of the Senate closing its doors in a committee room where senators were accustomed to sitting on the podium in the public area and working on the paper with the daily papers.
But otherwise it was such a last stretch, in which there is a lack of some of this characteristic madness in dealmaking at the end of the session, for the most part. Accuse the 72-hour rule that prohibits the late-night tricks of recent years, or the fact that already major disputes on issues such as rent, gig economy and police action have been settled. And these massive democratic margins help ensure a low mortality rate in legislation: Bill after bill flashed to the required 41
Much of the political drama we've seen focused on the Trump Insurance bill which was designed to set the environmental standards of the Obama era, a proposal that caused some tears in the Dem, including between Newsom and the legislative leadership. . It was not even clear that Senate President Pro Tem would conjure Toni Atkins the measure of a vote in the rally as the hours expired – but she did, and soon thereafter it narrowed. Newsom said he would veto. Debra Kahn of POLITICO has some details for Pro subscribers.
This is a sharp split between Newsom and the Legislature, and it highlights the difficult decision before the Governor: the signing of the law could have rejected his archenemy Trump, but it would have also tempered Democrats, Senator Dianne Feinstein and Water Agencies, who had warned against reduced water supplies in the Central Valley. In a statement, Newsom said he supports the bill's principle, but feels that it lacks real teeth, and "limits the ability of the state to rely on the best available science to protect our environment." George Skelton in the LATimes thinks it is good that Atkins defied this newsom here.
Some died: A repeated effort to keep the beams open later, and a bill on parental consent in social media died on the floor of the rally. A constitutional amendment to the labor laws of workers in the UC has not reached the required two-thirds. And it will wait until next year for a pair of swept plastic recycling bills and a move to extend Medi-Cal to older immigrants dangling until the early hours of Saturday , but ultimately no basic votes received.
Some Other Highlights: A leadership-backed move against high-yielding credits was passed … A belated bill to free a single refinery from environmental regulations was drawn … legislator Oil Wells … Face Detection Could Be Restricted … Newsom Could Turn Back Penal Reforms … Schools Could Start Later A School Bond goes to the poll … And we had to ask a lawmaker, "This is a terrible bill, and I'm not going to vote for it," about their own bill .
BUENOS DÍAS, good Monday morning. Now it's all over, but the law signatures – rest assured, we'll let you know what Newsom is doing, especially at Repetitions where Newsom has the opportunity to break with the former governor. Jerry Brown.
