The process through which a policy idea must traverse to become California law can seem incredibly byzantine and sometimes opaque. Between the original drafting of the legislation and when it finally crosses the Governor’s desk, there are multiple points at which a bill can stall, die or be significantly amended. What are the keys to understanding this often circuitous process and what should advocates know and do to improve the chances that a bill will pass through it smoothly? Former State Senator Jim Beall will join us to talk about the lifecycle of a bill in the State Capitol and what it takes to get results.
