Legislative Update: Oct. 15, 2019 - Newsom Makes His Mark


Legislation Pending No Longer as Governor Makes Mark

October 13, a month after the Legislative Session ended, marked the last day for Governor Gavin Newsom to act upon bills sent to him during the final weeks of the Legislative Session. In his first year of bill actions, there were over a thousand bills that reached Governor Newsom’s desk this year, including 740 bills acted upon during the final month.  In the Governor’s first year in office, a total of 1,042 bills out of 2,625 bills introduced (Senate – 792 bills; Assembly – 1,833 bills) reached his desk in 2019. Effectively, 39.7% of the bills introduced made it to the Governor’s desk, on par with the average of the past few years. As a result, 33% (45% in 2018) of the bills introduced got signed into law, while 6.5% (9% in 2018) of the bills introduced got vetoed. Here is an overview of Gov. Newsom’s final stats for his 2019 bill actions. 

Total bills: 1,042

Signed Bills: 870

           83.5% of the bills were signed

           66% of the signed bills were Assembly bills

                       83% of the ABs signed were authored by Democrats

                       9% of the ABs signed were authored by Republicans

                       8% of the ABs signed were committee bills

           34% of the signed bills were Senate bills

                       76% of the SBs signed were authored by Democrats

                       10% of the SBs signed were authored by Republicans

                       14% of the SBs signed were committee bills 

Vetoed Bills: 172

           16.5% of the bills were vetoed

           71% of the vetoed bills were Assembly bills

                       88.5% of the ABs vetoed were authored by Democrats

                       11.5% of the ABs vetoed were authored by Republicans

           29% of the vetoed bills were Senate bills

                       84% of the SBs vetoed were authored by Democrats

                       16% of the SBs vetoed were authored by Republicans 

By comparison, during the last eight years that Governor Jerry Brown served in office, he received a low of 870 bills on his desk (his first year in office) to a high of 1,217 bills (his last year in office). His veto rate was a low of 10.7% (his third year in office) to a high of 16.5% (his last year in office). 

As a final comparison, below is the same data collected above for Governor Brown’s last year of bill actions (from the 2018 Session). 

Total bills acted on: 1,217

Signed Bills: 1,016

           83.5% of the bills were signed

           65% of the signed bills were Assembly bills

                       79% of the ABs signed were authored by Democrats

                       14% of the ABs signed were authored by Republicans

                       7% of the ABs signed were committee bills

           35% of the signed bills were Senate bills

                       77% of the SBs signed were authored by Democrats

                       13% of the SBs signed were authored by Republicans

                       10% of the SBs signed were committee bills 

Vetoed Bills: 201

           16.5% of the bills were vetoed

           74% of the vetoed bills were Assembly bills

                       84% of the ABs vetoed were authored by Democrats

                       13% of the ABs vetoed were authored by Republicans

                       3% of the ABs vetoed were committee bills

           26% of the vetoed bills were Senate bills

                       94% of the SBs vetoed were authored by Democrats

                       6% of the SBs vetoed were authored by Republicans 

The increase of the bills in the final year of Governor Brown’s term and the first year of Governor Newsom’s term, being a transition phase, can be partly attributed to legislators testing the governors. That could be a reason for the simultaneous increase in the veto ratio. Additionally, it may be wise to view bill signings during the early years of Governor Brown’s recent stint in office in isolation as the Great Recession could have had an outsized influence on what legislators believed they could ultimately do.


Governor Issues Statement and Final Decisions on Legislation

Governor Gavin Newsom took his final actions of the 2019 legislative season today and thanked the Legislature for their work and accomplishment on enacting 870 bills in the following statement: 

“I want to take a moment to congratulate the Legislature on their work this year and to thank Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins and Speaker of the Assembly Anthony Rendon for their leadership. Together, we have accomplished a great deal this year – through the budget and legislation – that helps California families get ahead and tackles some of the state’s most intractable problems.

“This year, California passed the nation’s strongest renter protection package. Our state made record housing and homeless investments paired with big new tools for housing production. We moved California closer to universal health care coverage by expanding coverage, increasing Covered California subsidies for middle-income Californians and taking on rising prescription drug prices.

“California, faced with catastrophic wildfires, invested $1 billion to prevent, mitigate and recover from wildfires, disasters and emergencies. And in July, our state enacted something that few people thought could be done – wildfire legislation that moved California closer to a safer, reliable and affordable energy future.

“Our state is doing more now than at any point in our history to help California families tackle the challenges of affordability and provide opportunity to all Californians – more than doubling tax cuts for working families, expanding paid family leave, increasing access to early childhood education, and taking on payday lenders.

“On education, California brought disparate sides in the education community together and forged a historic agreement on changes to charter school law that was years in the making. We invested more in K-14 education than at any point in our history, and put on next year’s ballot the chance to make long-overdue investments in school infrastructure and safety. California made two years of community college tuition-free, increased financial aid for parents pursuing a college degree and kept tuition from rising in our UC and CSU systems.

“We have helped defend our state from Trump’s attacks – blocking the Administration from using state lands to open up drilling on protected federal lands. We took on the long-standing challenge of clean drinking water systems, became the first ever to require SMOG tests for semi trucks and convinced four major auto-makers to stand up for higher emission standards and oppose the Trump administration.

“California is once again striking out against injustice and leading the nation by example. We passed one of the country’s strongest police use-of-force laws, and outlawed private, for-profit prisons. California became the first state in the nation to stand up to the NCAA’s long-standing profiteering from student athletes. California took first-in-the-nation steps to strengthen our gun safety laws, protect workers and defend reproductive health care rights. We continued to make progress reforming our criminal justice system – eliminating a major mandatory minimum sentence and establishing a system to seal arrest and conviction records for low-level offenses.

“We are proving that our state is successful not despite our diversity, but because of it. California isn’t just defending our vibrant immigrant communities. We are affording all Californians – regardless of immigration status – the chance to serve their communities and give back.

“In California, we are putting in place new reforms of agencies that don’t serve the public as well as they should – pushing the DMV to join the 21st century, giving new authority to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to enforce wildfire safety standards, and recasting the priorities of our state’s agency that regulates oil and gas extraction.

“California did all of this while living within our means: creating the largest rainy day fund in California history, paying down pension liabilities and eliminating our state’s wall of debt. 

“In my inaugural, I spoke of the California Dream as a house – one that must be built on a strong fiscal foundation. For that reason, I am returning a number of bills to the Legislature without my signature that would significantly increase costs outside of the state’s regular budget process.

“We have clearly achieved a great deal together, and I commend the Legislature for their hard work. I look forward to our continued partnership as we head into the new year and continue to tackle challenges of affordability and work to expand opportunity to all Californians.”

In his final action of the 2019 legislative season, the Governor vetoed a number of bills that would significantly increase costs outside of the state’s regular budget process. In total, Governor Newsom vetoed bills this year costing $1.2 billion, increasing to $3 billion annually at full implementation. He also acted on a number of other bills.
