It has not yet been scheduled to be heard by the Appropriations committee, but that committee must hear it before May 24th if the bill is to progress to the Assembly this year.

SCFA supports Bill Monning in his choice to abstain in the face of significant pressure from the author of the bill, and leader of the Senate, Steinberg.
