It's A Brand New Biennium!

The California legislature reconvened on Monday.  Cal. Const. Art. IV, § 3(a).  Over 100 bills have already been introduced in the Assembly.  The Senate is far behind with just 51 bills introduced thus far.  The first day business in both houses involved adopting rules and appointing officers of the house.  Having accomplished these tasks, the legislature will be in recess until January 7, 2019.  Joint Rule 51(a)(1).  In the meantime, some committees will meet. 

The California legislature operates on a two-year schedule known as a biennium. Cal. Const. Art. IV, § 3(a).  The Nevada legislature in contrast operates biennially, that is every other year.
