California lawmakers approve presidential primary in March

California lawmakers approve presidential primary in March

The bill is now headed to Governor Brown's Desk for his final approval and signature. Jerry Brown - it will become law.

McGuire said the bill "helps to reestablish desperately needed transparency in the White House".

"If California politicians pass this bill, they will be prioritizing politics over the safety and security of their constituents", Homan said in a statement this week.

California's three investor-owned utilities, Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric, said the bill does not protect customers from the cost of switching from fossil fuels. It was amended Monday to include a much longer list of exceptions than originally proposed as well as changes that would allow federal agents to interview inmates in jails.

"President Trump's blatant disregard for the tradition of releasing tax returns is risky to our democracy", said California State Sen.

The concessions were sought by Brown, who wields veto power, and law enforcement groups.

The compromise moved the California Police Chiefs Association's position on the bill opposed to neutral.

If passed, it would limit state and local law enforcement agencies from communicating with federal immigration authorities and prevent state and local police departments from questioning people on immigration violations. "At a time when police data indicates that domestic violence and sexual assault reporting is plummeting among Latinos, California has a moral obligation to ensure law enforcement agents treat everyone fairly, no matter their background, what they look like, or where they are born".

Some framed the argument by telling stories of their undocumented constituents. It was the latest effort by Democratic lawmakers in California to create barriers for President Donald Trump's campaign pledge to step up deportation efforts.

Shortly after Trump won election last fall, de León's staff invited several immigration lawyers to join a conference call and asked them to bring ideas that were considered politically infeasible under the Obama administration back to the table in California.

"The time for political posturing is over, guys", said Assemblyman James Gallagher, R-Yuba City.

All of this is real and important progress, but these bills will not come close to fully solving the problem.
