Public Law Section’s Legislative Update 2019
by Katharine Killeen
Public property and services, public safety, housing and land use, environmental conditions, and food service were just some of the categories receiving attention from the California Legislature, resulting in new laws impacting public agencies. For the third consecutive year, the Public Law Section was treated to an annual legislative update, presented by Ashley Zambrano, an attorney at Best Best & Krieger. There were many topics of interest to the public law practitioners in attendance, including but not limited to water utilities, sidewalk vendors, taxicab services, parking penalties, school safety plans, motorized scooters, housing and zoning, drinking water standards, and straws.
The Public Law Section is especially grateful to Best Best & Krieger for hosting the luncheon at its office in Sacramento on February 6, 2019. This popular event drew a full house! The Section looks forward to more educational and fun gatherings this year.
