It’s been a very busy two months for the legislative committee. Brooke Ryan has been to the State Capitol several times for subcommittee hearings. She has testified before these subcommittees very well and has helped to keep CCRA’s proposed legislation moving forward. We have passed several deadlines with unanimous votes for two of our bills, the CEU bill and our bill requiring all deposition firms that operate within California will have to follow California law, while our third bill requiring reporters in family law has now been deemed a two-year bill and will not be taken up again until next year. So far, we are doing all right.
