Current Text: Introduced: 2/20/2020 html pdf
Status: 6/5/2020-Failed Deadline pursuant to Rule 61(b)(6). (Last location was A. B. & F. on 3/12/2020)
Location: 6/5/2020-A. DEAD
Summary: Current law prohibits a retailer in any sales, service, or lease transaction from imposing surcharges on consumers who elect to use a credit card in lieu of payment by cash, check, or similar means, but permits a retailer to offer discounts to encourage payments by means other than credit cards, as specified. This bill would repeal these provisions. The bill would authorize a retailer in any sales, service, or lease transaction with a consumer to impose a surcharge on a cardholder who elects to use a credit card in lieu of payment by cash, check, or similar means, subject to two requirements.
(Cunningham R) California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018.
Status: 6/5/2020-Failed Deadline pursuant to Rule 61(b)(6). (Last location was A. PRINT on 2/20/2020)
Summary: Current law, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, grants a consumer various rights in connection with a business, as defined, that collects a consumer’s personal information. The act requires a business to make certain disclosures to consumers regarding a consumer’s rights under the act.This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to those provisions.

Current Text: Amended: 5/4/2020 html pdf
Last Amend: 5/4/2020
Status: 5/29/2020-Failed Deadline pursuant to Rule 61(b)(5). (Last location was P. & C.P. on 4/24/2020)

Summary: The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 grants a consumer various rights with respect to personal information, as defined, that is collected or sold by a business, as defined, including the right to opt out of the sale of a consumer’s personal information. The CCPA defines terms for its purposes, including defining the term “sell” to mean, subject to specified exceptions, selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information by the business to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration. This bill would, instead, define “share” to mean, subject to specified exceptions, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information by the business to another business or a third party and would define “sell” to mean sharing for monetary or other valuable consideration.
(Aguiar-Curry D) Local government financing: affordable housing and public infrastructure: voter approval.
Current Text: Amended: 3/18/2019 html pdf
Last Amend: 3/18/2019
Status: 8/19/2019-Read third time. Refused adoption. Motion to reconsider made by Assembly Member Aguiar-Curry.
Location: 5/20/2019-A. RECONSIDERATION
Summary: The California Constitution prohibits the ad valorem tax rate on real property from exceeding 1% of the full cash value of the property, subject to certain exceptions. This measure would create an additional exception to the 1% limit that would authorize a city, county, city and county, or special district to levy an ad valorem tax to service bonded indebtedness incurred to fund the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement of public infrastructure, affordable housing, or permanent supportive housing, or the acquisition or lease of real property for those purposes, if the proposition proposing that tax is approved by 55% of the voters of the city, county, or city and county, as applicable, and the proposition includes specified accountability requirements.
(Caballero D) California Environmental Quality Act: projects funded by qualified opportunity zone funds or other public funds.
Current Text: Amended: 7/27/2020 html pdf
Last Amend: 7/27/2020
Status: 7/27/2020-From committee with author's amendments. Read second time and amended. Re-referred to Com. on NAT. RES. July 29 hearing postponed by committee. Pulled from NAT. RES. hearing on 8.6.20.
Location: 7/10/2019-A. NAT. RES.
NOTE: SB 25 was pulled from Assembly Natural Resources Hearing on 8.6.20. Given the upcoming deadlines, it is likely this bill will not move forward this year.
Summary: Would, until January 1, 2025, establish specified procedures for the administrative and judicial review of the environmental review and approvals granted for projects located in specified counties that are funded, in whole or in part, by specified public funds or public agencies and that meet certain requirements. Specifies that a “qualified project” does not include a self-storage property, among others. Because a public agency would be required to comply with those new procedures, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would require the Judicial Council, by March 31, 2021, to adopt rules of court applicable to an action or proceeding brought to attack, review, set aside, void, or annul the certification or adoption of an environmental review document or the granting of project approvals, including any appeals therefrom, to be resolved, to the extent feasible, within 270 days of the filing of the certified record of proceedings with the court to an action or proceeding seeking judicial review of the lead agency’s action related to those projects. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.

Current Text: Amended: 5/29/2020 html pdf
Last Amend: 5/29/2020
Status: 6/18/2020-June 18 hearing: Held in committee and under submission.
Location: 6/9/2020-S. APPR. SUSPENSE FILE
Summary: Would prohibit a commercial landlord, as defined, from serving a specified notice of eviction on a commercial tenant, as defined, until 90 days after the state of emergency proclaimed by the Governor on March 4, 2020, is lifted and if specified criteria apply, including that the commercial tenant served a written notice on the landlord affirming, under the penalty of perjury, that the commercial tenant is an eligible COVID-19 impacted commercial tenant. By creating a new crime with regard to the notice being signed under the penalty of perjury, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would define an “eligible COVID-19 impacted commercial tenant” for the purposes of these provisions as a commercial tenant, operating primarily in California, that occupies commercial real property pursuant to a lease and that meets certain financially related criteria.
(Archuleta D) Common interest developments: document delivery.
Current Text: Amended: 4/8/2020 html pdf
Last Amend: 4/8/2020
Status: 4/8/2020-From committee with author's amendments. Read second time and amended. Re-referred to Com. on RLS.
Location: 2/11/2020-S. RLS.
Summary: The Davis-Stirling Common Interest Development Act, requires an association to deliver documents to members of a common interest development, if those documents are required to be delivered by individual delivery or notice, by either first-class mail, postage prepaid, registered or certified mail, express mail, or overnight delivery by an express service carrier or by email, facsimile, or other electronic means, if the recipient has consented, in writing or by email, to receive documents by that electronic means.This bill would instead require, on and after January 1, 2022, an association to deliver those documents by email unless the member has not provided a valid email address to the association or has revoked consent to receiving documents by email, in which case the association would be required to deliver the documents by traditional mail, as described above.
(Jones R) Mortgages and deeds of trust: foreclosure.
Current Text: Amended: 5/26/2020 html pdf
Last Amend: 5/26/2020
Status: 6/18/2020-Referred to Com. on JUD.
Location: 6/18/2020-A. JUD.
Summary: Current law prescribes a process pursuant to which a power of sale contained in a mortgage or deed of trust may be exercised, including publication of a specified notice of sale in a particular manner. Current law requires that the first publication be at least 20 days before the date of sale, in a newspaper of general circulation published in the city in which the property or some part of it is situated, and if the property is not situated in a city, then in a newspaper of general circulation published in the public notice district in which the property or some part of it is situated. If a newspaper of general circulation is not published in the city or public notice district, the notice is to be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the county in which the property or some part of it is situated, subject to further conditions. This bill would eliminate the initial requirement that a notice of sale be published in the city in which the property or some part of it is situated, as described above, instead providing that the initial publication preference is for a newspaper of general circulation in the public notice district in which the property, or some part of it, is situated.
(Umberg D) Price gouging.
Current Text: Amended: 6/18/2020 html pdf
Last Amend: 6/18/2020
Status: 6/29/2020-Referred to Com. on PUB. S.
Location: 6/29/2020-A. PUB. S.
Summary: Under current law, upon the proclamation of a state of emergency, as defined, by the President of the United States or the Governor, or upon the declaration of a local emergency, as defined, by the executive officer of any county, city, or city and county, and for 30 days following the proclamation or declaration of emergency, it is a misdemeanor for a person, contractor, business, or other entity to sell or offer to sell certain goods or services for a price 10% greater than the price charged by that person immediately prior to the proclamation or declaration of emergency. Current law makes a greater price increase lawful under these provisions if the person can prove that the increase in price was directly attributable to additional costs imposed on it by the supplier of the goods, or directly attributable to additional costs for the labor or materials used to provide the services, during the state of emergency or local emergency, and the price is no more than 10% greater than the total of the cost to the seller plus the markup customarily applied by the seller. This bill would expand that crime to also include selling or offering to sell those goods or services for a price 10% greater than the price charged immediately prior to a date set by the proclamation or declaration of emergency.
Current Text: Amended: 6/29/2020 html pdf
Last Amend: 6/29/2020
