Legislative Action Alert Update – May 5th, 2022
Authors: Senator Wiener and Senator Pan
Position: Strongly OPPOSE
The Senate Judiciary heard and passed SB 866 this afternoon. Thank you to each of you who called your legislators or committee members.
It’s not over yet. But before I go any further, I would like to ask that you please thank Senator Jones for voicing his concerns about SB 866 in the hearing. You can find his contact info here:
Senator Brian Jones

Where Do We Go From Here?
Let’s look at the next step for this bill and some opportunities to potentially influence the outcome.
Remember that each committee hearing and floor vote is an opportunity for a bill to be stopped.
The next stop for SB 866 is the Senate Floor. That means the bill will be voted on by the entire State Senate. This vote could happen as early as their session next Monday, May 9th at 2:00 PM.
If you haven’t contacted your California State Senator yet about SB 866, please do so today. It can be a call, but please also consider sending a letter as they are not as common and can have a significant impact.
