Congratulations! We are almost half way through our adventure and you are doing a great job. I look forward to celebrating your successful completion of this class and for many of you - graduation – which I hope to celebrate with you!

Midterm Criteria:

You will write a 3 – 5 page bill analysis on an ACTIVE BILL currently in the California State Legislature.  The bill can be either an Assembly Bill (AB #) or Senate Bill (SB #).

Please do not do an analysis of any resolutions: concurrent resolutions (ACR or SCR) or joint resolutions (AJR or SJR).  

Your memo will include the following:

  1. Your name and e-mail address (in case I have questions during recess while I am reading).

  1. The Date you are submitting your analysis

  1. The Bill Number and author (please include any co-authors listed).

  1. The date the bill was last amended (unless there have been no amendments) and the date it was introduced.

  1. What does this bill propose to do?

  1. What law does this bill propose to change?

  1. Does the bill require a majority vote or a 2/3 vote?

  1. Does the bill need to go to a fiscal committee?

  1. Does the bill create a state mandated local program?

  1. Your recommendation to me to support or oppose the bill and WHY

This assignment is due to me no later than 3:00 p.m. on Friday, March 18, 2011. You can turn it in at any time between now and March 18 but not after.
