CA Senate Bill 250 Sent to Senate Appropriations Suspense File

(Tuesday, May 12, 2009)

The Senate Appropriations Committee analysis on Senate Bill 250 asserts that the bill may impose significant costs on both state and local governments in the short term and therefore the bill has been placed on the Suspense File. All bills that are projected to cost more than $150,000 are sent to the Suspense File. Staff and legislators then review these bills together and determine which bills will be released to the committee and then to the floor for a vote.

If you or your club have not yet contacted your Senator to oppose SB 250, please do so as soon as possible. The Senate Appropriations Committee will hold a special hearing to review the Suspense File prior to the fiscal deadline on May 29th. No testimony will be allowed at the Suspense hearing.
