California: Bills Pass Senate Appropriations Committee Now Eligible for Floor Vote
Today, the Senate Appropriations considered bills sent to the Suspense File earlier this month, passing SB 914 and SB 1175 on party-line voting. Both bills are eligible for votes on the Senate floor.

SB 914, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), limits when those under 21 can purchase a long gun by requiring their hunting license to be currently valid. This means an individual who has purchased a license for an upcoming season will not satisfy the requirements of the bill. Additionally, SB 914 narrows the exemptions of loans of long-guns to minors and raises the fees the California Department of Justice can charge for eligibility checks on certain ammunition purchases and precursor parts.
SB 1175, sponsored by Senator Henry Stern (D-27), would prohibit the possession of certain African species of wildlife. The true goal of the bill is to ensure that individuals are not allowed to bring home lawful hunting trophies—even with the approval of the U.S. Government.
