Yesterday afternoon the Assembly and Senate convened at the State Capitol for the purpose of swearing in the newly elected legislators for the 2019-20 legislative session.  The celebratory day featured opening remarks from Governor-elect Gavin Newsom, Senate President pro Tem Toni Atkins, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, and even a rousing standing ovation for the departing Governor, Jerry Brown.  The legislature will now be in Recess for the rest of December and will return to begin their Session on January 7.  Before the day concluded, legislators were allowed to introduce their first legislation of the session.  A surprisingly large number of bills (198) were introduced in total.  One measure, ACA 1 by Assemblywoman Aguiar-Curry will be of particular interest and potentially of great benefit to CLA members as the 2019-20 session kicks into gear.
