Sacramento Scene: COVID-19 Impacts
By: Matt Patton, CATA Executive Director

As with the rest of the world, these are unprecedented times at the California State Capitol. Last week the Legislature pushed back its scheduled return by three weeks and is now scheduled to reconvene on May 4. Currently, both Assembly and Senate members are working from their districts until public health officials declare it safe to return to Sacramento. Governor Newsom has stated that the legislative calendar is “fluid” and the 2020/2021 proposed budget released in January “is no longer operable.”
