Another week has gone by, and Governor Brown has worked his way through more bills that were sent to his desk in the flurry of activity that came at the end of session. Governor Brown acted on three of bills that we followed this year. All three of those bills – AB 1436, AB 2551, and SB 901 – were signed into law. I’ve also added in SB 923 from this week’s episode of In Session.
- AB 638: Immigration consultants – Dead, died on the Senate floor (13 Ayes, 17 Noes)
- AB 931: Use of force by peace officers – Dead, held in Senate Rules Committee.
- AB 1436: Suicide prevention training – Signed into law
- AB 1784: Pilot program for support services for resource families – Dead, held on Suspense file in Senate Appropriations. Will be revived next session.
- AB 1971: Reform of the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act – Dead, ordered to inactive file by coauthor
- AB 2018: Loan forgiveness program for public mental health professionals – Dead, held on Suspense File in Senate Appropriations
- AB 2551: Forestry and fire prevention – Signed into law

For those of you keeping score at home, that’s now 3 bills that Governor Brown has signed into law, 6 dead before reaching the Governor, and 5 waiting for the Governor to either sign, veto, or pocket sign them.
