California is set to get a chance to change its legislative calendar next year.
But there’s a chance that the legislative calendar could be drastically changed if the state’s governor and lieutenant governor don’t act.
California’s legislative calendar was already a little tight with the legislative session just ending, so if Gov.
Gavin Newsom and Lt.
Alex Padilla don’t sign off on a bill to create a new legislative session, the calendar will be drastically altered.
The legislative calendar has already undergone a significant change, as lawmakers have been forced to move back and forth between sessions.
That has left some California lawmakers looking for other places to meet, including a couple of times a year, when the state is still in a temporary session.
That’s because the legislative process has been extended twice over the past year.
The last time California was in a “temporary session,” the state legislature was closed due to a coronavirus pandemic.
But that was a short-lived situation.
The Legislature resumed its normal schedule and was able to pass a slew of bills in January 2018.
But the new legislative calendar won’t have that problem.
The state is set for a temporary legislative session this year, which will be an unprecedented opportunity for lawmakers to work on a lot of different bills.
If Newsom signs off on the bill, it will be the first time in more than two decades that the state won’t be in session for a legislative session.
The legislature has also been in a two-year, 18-month, and three-month shutdown, as the governor has been battling to pass more than a dozen bills at once.
The latest bill that’s been pushed by Newsom, Assembly Bill 1617, would allow Californians to register and vote online without having to go to a DMV office.
It also has other important changes, including requiring a background check for new drivers and requiring online businesses to post the names of their employees and landlords.
The bill will have a limited impact on people’s ability to vote, but that’s not going to stop Newsom from pushing it.
If the legislation becomes law, California will again be in a state of “temporarily session,” and the legislative schedule will likely change drastically, but the legislative sessions will still continue for at least two years.
