Midweek Bill Wrap-up

Tuesday, June 5, 2007

The Assembly approved a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in California.  It’s a measure that’s made it through the legislature before, but was vetoed by Governor Schwarzenegger.  Lawmakers also passed a bill requiring the state to develop alternatives to the high school exit exam.  And they approved a measure requiring California’s public retirement funds to divest from companies that do business with Iran.  

In the Senate, a bill to allow parents of stillborn babies obtain a birth certificate was approved – as was a measure to relax confidentiality rules concerning police disciplinary records.

Still to come this busy week:  a measure requiring Californians to spay or neuter their cats and dogs.  Friday is the deadline for bills to make it out of the house they originated in.
