RECAPP AS PER PRECISION ADVOCACY - AB 690 (Chen) Awaits Senate Judiciary Hearing
CALDA’s sponsored legislation, AB 690 (Chen), is currently pending a hearing date in the Senate Judiciary Committee, following its passage in the Assembly, where it received no opposition. The bill extends the existing statutes authorizing and regulating legal document assistants for an additional six years from January 1, 2024 through January 1, 2030. The current statutes expire at the end of the year, so the passage of this legislation is critical to our ability to continue to legally operate in California.
The full text of AB 690 can be found here: https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=202320240AB690.
Assuming the bill passes the Senate Judiciary Committee, it will likely be referred to the Senate Appropriations Committee and then advance to the full Senate. The last day to pass bills out of the Legislature is September 14. The governor has until October 14 to sign or veto bills that reach his desk.
We will continue to keep you posted as AB 690 continues to move through the legislative process. In the meantime, we thank you for your interest and support.
Respectfully submitted by Chester Ruiz, Co-Chair CALDA Legislative Committee
