SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California lawmakers are heading into the final week to move legislation from one house to the next with a lengthy to-do list.
But that list does not include several high-profile tax bills sought by Democrats.
Among the bills expected to be tackled by the Assembly and Senate are ones on gun control, environmental protection and health care. Most bills must pass out of their first chamber by Friday to have a chance of reaching the governor's desk by the Sept. 13 deadline.
The floor votes follow rapid-fire committee meetings late last week, in which lawmakers advanced or killed hundreds of bills. Among those killed were several bills to create or raise taxes on oil drilling, sugary drinks and tobacco.
