Following up on our recent post about two bills pending in the California legislature that would amend California’s “Made in USA” law—yesterday the Assembly passed SB 633. Next, SB 633 will be sent back to the Senate for a concurrence vote, and assuming the Senate approves, the bill would then go on to the Governor’s desk for signature. The Legislature goes on summer recess today, so we won’t find out the fate of SB 633 for at least another month. So far that bill has not received any “no” votes, either in committee or on the floor of either chamber. And, given that the Assembly didn’t make many substantive amendments to the law, it looks likely to be approved in the Senate.
As for AB 312, the bill’s author has signed on as a principal co-author to SB 633, which indicates that AB 312 isn’t likely to be pursued.
