Assembly Floor Action:
Interstate Banking: Approved and sent to the Senate on 42-31 vote a bill (AB 1492) by Assemblyman Charles M. Calderon (D-Alhambra) to authorize out-of-state bank holding companies and their subsidiaries to acquire ownership or control of state-chartered banks in California under certain conditions.
Surrogate Parents: Defeated on a 37-36 vote a bill (AB 1707) by Assemblywoman Jean M.

Senate Floor Action:
Hazardous Waste: Approved and sent to the Assembly on a 33-0 vote a bill (SB 470) by Senate President Pro Tem David A. Roberti (D-Los Angeles).

Miscellany Bang, Bang, You’re a Winner: Sen. H. L. Richardson (R-Glendora) is scheduled to host a 10th anniversary celebration in Sacramento on July 10 for his Gun Owners of California, a group that has contributed a lot of money to conservative Republican political candidates over the years. The invitation says the door prize will be a semiautomatic rifle that would be “potentially illegal” under a pending Assembly bill. It is a Ruger Mini-14, both a hunting gun and a weapon used by some peace officers, worth $219. The press and all members of the Legislature have been invited to attend the event.
