CFPA 2020 State Legislative Tracker

Our 2020 state legislative tracker includes legislation CFPA is supporting, opposing or monitoring. CFPA-sponsored efforts have our highest priority and are shaded in tan. We will update this page on a regular basis as action is taken. Click each item for information, including bill language, fact sheets, and more.

COVID-19 Update: The California Legislature has returned from emergency recess. CFPA will continue to track priority legislation throughout the 2020 session.
