Just short of 2,000 new bills have been filed in the California legislature in 2016. The CALPASC Govt. Affairs Committee reviews all bills pertinent to construction employers. Director of Risk Management Bruce Wick, surveys all bills through word searches. That usually results in reading 150 or so of the new bills. Approximately 60 will be reviewed by the Committee over the next several weeks.
The Committee reviews the bills, discusses the political and policy issues on the bill, and comes to a decision. Those decisions are to support, oppose, or monitor the bill. CALPASC members should contact Bruce if they have any questions about bills they hear about through various sources. firstname.lastname@example.org; or 909-793-9932.
