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.

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.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
