As noted earlier, California AB 2058 recently failed to pass the Senate Public Safety Committee. This is the bill to make it a crime to pay registration workers on a per-registration card basis. The bill, in its more recent form, has not passed either house, and since the Senate Public Safety Committee is not scheduled to meet again this year, the bill seemed dead.
However, employees of the legislature say that the Senate President, Darrell Steinberg, still intends to use whatever parliamentary tools are available to him to revive the bill, whether the contents of the bill are placed in another bill or not. However, no action is expected until mid-August.
