Two state legislative committees will soon consider bills that would allow, but not require, cities and counties to adopt “presence restrictions”. On April 28, the Senate Public Safety Committee will consider SB 267 at 9:30 a.m. in Room 3191. ***** Please note the change of date for SB 267 *******
“The Senate Governance and Finance Committee approved SB 267 on April 15 and if the bill is also approve by the Senate Public Safety Committee, it will move to the Senate floor for a vote,” stated California RSOL president Janice Bellucci. “This bill must be stopped.”
On April 29, the Assembly Local Government Committee will hear AB 201 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 447. This is the first consideration of the bill by an Assembly Committee. The Assembly bill is broader than the Senate bill because it would also authorize cities and counties to adopt residency restrictions.
“Senate and Assembly hearings are open to the public. Registered citizens as well as their loved ones are encouraged to attend the hearings on April 28 and 29,” stated California RSOL vice president Chance Oberstein.
