CCRA has been very busy this month supporting the entire profession as well as strengthening the association. So what have we been up to you might ask? Here is a small list of some of the many activities that your board members have been doing for you.
Legislation CCRA at this time has introduced two bills:
AB 749 (Bloom) A bill requiring court reporters in family law hearings.
We’re into the middle of the first leg of this two-year legislative session, and CCRA has introduced several pieces of legislation to be considered by the Legislature as possible new laws.
For those who are not as well versed as others on the legislative process, here’s the line of reasoning that CCRA uses to decide what to introduce each session.
When the board and the legislative committee sit down to talk about ways to improve the profession, we do not reach into a grab bag of ideas that will make everybody happy. There is no such animal in the legislative process. There will always be people that will be unhappy with what is being proposed.
