Two Wilk Bills Pass out of Senate Committees Unanimously
Assembly Bill 1680 and Assembly Bill 2551 by Assemblyman Scott Wilk, R- Santa Clarita, passed out of the Senate Labor and Industrial Relations and Senate Governance and Finance Committees, respectively.AB 1680 affords an extra layer of protection for children in the entertainment industry by requiring service providers to display their Child Performer Services Permit on any and all advertisements, including internet advertisements.
“This measure is a simple, yet important step towards protecting our children as they seek to make their Hollywood dreams come true,” said Wilk.
AB 2551 establishes greater transparency regarding the fiscal impact of local bond measures.
The bill seeks to establish a minimum standard of transparency for the fiscal analysis of local bond measures that is very similar to what the Legislative Analyst Office (LAO) already does for state General Obligation bond measures. In order to estimate tax rates, there needs to be a clearer fiscal effect/impact statement similar to what the LAO does.
Wilk stated, “We need to provide voters with comprehensive financial information in order to pass responsible bond measures.”
