Mosquitos. Those pesky little bugs that typically bother you on hot summer evenings when you are enjoying the outdoors. Or at least that used to be the case. Now Southern California has types of mosquitoes previously not seen in the region, and their behavior is not what we are used to.
Update on Rental Housing Bills
Yesterday, the Senate Appropriations Committee moved several rental housing bills to the "suspense file," including SB 1190 (Durazo). The suspense file is a holding placing for bills with significant fiscal impacts. Bills are generally held on the suspense file before each fiscal deadline so that each House can evaluate the total impacts to the state. Bills that are moved out of suspense then go to the floor while bills held in suspense die. The process for getting a bill off of the suspense file is full of political horse trading between legislators, leadership, and the Appropriations Committee chair. Bills that move off of the suspense file are almost always moved off of suspense with amendments. The Senate Appropriations Committee will be taking-up suspense file bills Friday, June 18, 2020.
