In this week’s Capitol Comment, Senator Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) details a few of the Senate bills that did pass, and one that didn’t pass, during the “House of Origin” deadline in his Capitol Comment for the Week of May 27th, 2013.
Both the California State Senate and California State Assembly faced the “House of Origin” deadline this week, which required all bills that were introduced in the Senate be voted out of the Senate, and all bills introduced in the Assembly be voted out of the Assembly. Those bills that are not voted out of the house of origin by the deadline cannot move forward in the legislative process and are dead for the year.
Senator Huff speaks briefly about the seven gun control measures the Senate narrowly passed, a bill to regulate gas and oil exploration called “fracking,” why some Senate Republicans voted for a bill to extend higher car registration fees and why a proposed ban on plastic bags failed.
Senator Huff serves as the Senate Republican Leader and represents the 29th Senate District covering portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. Follow Senator Huff on Twitter @bobhuff99.
