Bill Introductions: County Supervisors: ACA 12 by Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana) would prohibit county supervisors from representing districts with a population of more than one million people. The proposed ballot measure is aimed at asking the voters to approve increasing the size of the five-member Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. The county now has a population of about 8 million.
Schools: AB 375 by Assemblywoman Marian W. LaFollette (R-Northridge) would allow schoolchildren to attend any school anywhere in the state, regardless of where their parents reside.
Fishing Licenses: AB 371 by Assemblyman Gary A. Condit (D-Ceres) would exempt people 62 years of age or older from having to purchase a fishing license.
Holocaust: ACR 17 by Assemblyman Richard Katz (D-Sepulveda) would designate April 30-May 7 as Holocaust Memorial Week. It also urges Californians to observe these days in remembrance of the victims.
Senate Bill Introductions: Drugs: SB 294 by Sen. James W. Nielsen (R-Rohnert Park) would require people convicted of drug-related crimes involving methamphetamines, PCP or LSD to register with local law enforcement authorities within 30 days after moving to a new California county or city. This would close a loophole in existing state law.
School Administrators: SB 280 by Sen. Gary K. Hart (D-Santa Barbara) would reduce the number of school administrators as compared to school teachers by setting up tighter requirements.
Wiretapping: SB 245 by Sen. Nielsen would add murder, kidnaping, terrorism and arson to major drug trafficking as serious crimes in which electronic surveillance may be authorized by the courts for use by law enforcement officers.
Fees: SB 291 by Sen. Bill Greene (D-Los Angeles) would increase fees for various documents that are filed with the secretary of state’s office.
