The Senate and Assembly have updated their web pages.

Committee info for the Senate is at http://senate.ca.gov/committees

Public Safety
JURISDICTION: Bills amending the following: a) Evidence Code, relating to criminal procedure. b) Penal Code. c) Statutes of a penal nature not related closely to a subject included in another subdivision of this rule. d) Bills relating to the Youth and Adult Corrections Agency.

Appropriations
JURISDICTION: Bills that are subject to Joint Rule 10.5 and are not referred to the Budget and Fiscal Review Committee. Bills that constitute a state-mandated local program.


Committee info for the Assembly is at http://assembly.ca.gov/committees

Public Safety
Committee Jurisdiction: Primary jurisdiction is the California Penal Code.

Appropriations
Committee Jurisdiction: Primary jurisdiction is fiscal bills, including bonds and alternative public financing.
Appropriations is a step a bill must pass through if there are any fiscal - $$ - effects. Usually they don't care about content otherwise.

It's important to refer to the current page for a committee to get contact information - membership changes sometimes during the session.

Once again, we're in CA Bill Season.

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

Let us simply oppose them all - write, call, attend meetings with legislators and tell them they're wrong.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
