AB 1448 (Mullin) - REQUEST FOR FEEDBACK
As Introduced on January 7, 2014
Assembly Bill 1448, by Assembly Member Kevin Mullin, would prohibit the legislative or governing body of a city, county, city and county, school board, special district, or any other entity of local government from granting lifetime healthcare benefits to an elected official who serve part time.
AB 1448 is awaiting a hearing date in the Assembly Local Government Committee.
AB 1522 (Gonzalez) - Oppose
As Introduced on January 16, 2014
Assembly Bill 1522, by Assembly Member Lorena Gonzalez, would establish the Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014. It would entitle an employee in California to paid sick days if he or she works seven or more days in a calendar year.
Sick days would accrue at the rate of no less than one hour for every 30 hours worked. The employee would be able to use such sick days beginning on the 90th calendar day of employment. Counties will recall a substantially similar CSAC-opposed bill, AB 400 (2011) by then-Assembly Member Fiona Ma, which was held in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
