It looks to me like the bill has passed but got sent back to Approprations for a cost issue.

Boy do I hope I'm wrong. This will no doubt be the last stab at getting me to move out of this state.

If anyone (Bill Wiese?) can help decipher, that would be great.. I'm ready to write more letters to this Appropriations committee as needed!!

.457 mag has it exactly right.

The bill was amended, then passed out of the Assembly Public Safety Committee. For reasons unknown to me, that committee thought the amended bill had some fiscal effect, so it goes back to Appropriations. (Might also be 'get this off -our- plate, we don't want to touch it'.)

The bill analysis has a bright spot, maybe: 5)Provisions in This Bill Part of SB 1152 (Scott) : SB 1152
(Scott), of the 2003-04 Legislative Session, was vetoed. SB
1152 contained the provisions now in this bill as well as
other provisions related to recordkeeping of handgun
ammunition sales. The Governor's veto message for SB 1152
follows in its entirety. No where in that veto message is any
mention of the provisions now contained in this bill:
"I am returning Senate Bill 1152 without my signature. This
bill proposes an ammunition registration process that has
already been considered and rejected by the federal government
when they repealed a substantially similar law citing it was
simply unworkable and offered no public safety benefit. In
addition, no other state collects information on ammunition
sales or purchasers. Forensic testing of ammunition used in a
crime is the most effective way of tracing criminal activity.
For these reasons, I am returning this bill without my
signature."

AB 352 and SB 357 are going to go all the way. That's pretty clear at this point. Our only real hope is that Schwarzenegger will veto them, and there's a better-than-even chance of that happening.
