Legislation

The CEHA Legislative Committee reviews and tracks California legislation (bills) pertaining to Environmental Health issues and provides regular updates to the CEHA Board and general membership.  The Committee also assists the CEHA President in drafting letters to legislators on bills of interest.

The legislative process is a 2 year cycle.  During the beginning of each calendar year, bills are introduced in each house of the legislation.  The bills are assigned numbers according to where the bill originated.  Bills introduced by an Assembly member will start with AB and bills introduced by a Senator are numbered with SB.  The bills are heard by committees in each house and then pass to the other house for approval.  Legislation must be heard and passed by both houses before it is submitted to the Governor.

Around June, the proposed bills must be passed by the house of origin and sent to the other house for review. If not, the bill will remain in that house until the next year of the legislative cycle for reconsideration.  After the bill is approved by both houses it is submitted to the Governor, usually around September 1. The Governor has about a month to sign or veto a bill. If a bill is not approved by the second year of the legislative cycle it is considered dead.

If you would like more information on the legislative process please visit one of the legislative websites such as www.leginfo.ca.gov.
