Lane Splitting: Educational Guidelines Legislation (California AB51) Update...6/28/16

Lane Splitting: Educational Guidelines Legislation (California AB51) Update...6/28/16
Yesterday, AB 51 made it out of the Senate Appropriations Committee and was placed on their second reading file pursuant to Senate Rule 28.8…
28.8. Any bill referred to the Committee on Appropriations pursuant to Joint Rule 10.5 that does not appropriate money may not be set for hearing and shall, along with any nonsubstantive amendments, promptly be reported to the Senate with the recommendation it be placed on second reading if the chair of the committee determines that (a) any additional state costs are not significant and do not and will not require the appropriation of additional state funds, and (b) the bill will cause no significant reduction in revenues.
Today, AB 51 was the 8th bill on the Senate Floor agenda.…
Will know what the status is later today. But…in the event it does pass a vote on the Senate Floor today, AB 51 will then go back for approval by the House of Origin because of the changes made to the bill while it was in the Second House. This is called Concurrence…
… Approval by the House of origin to changes made to a bill while it was in the second House (e.g., Assembly approval of Senate amendments to an Assembly bill).
If concurrence is denied, the bill is eligible to be sent to a two-house conference committee - A joint Assembly and Senate committee composed of six legislators, three from each House. The conference committee meets in public session to reconcile differences between the Assembly and Senate versions of a measure. Three Assembly conferees are chosen by the Speaker; three Senate conferees are chosen by the Senate Rules Committee.
If concurrence is approved, the bill will be forwarded to the Governor for his signature. If the Governor signs the bill, it will go into effect in January, 2017.
It is hoped that AB 51 passes both the Senate Floor and Concurrence in the Assembly by June 30 before Legislature goes on summer recess during the month of July.
