Annual Session

The purpose of the Annual Session is to develop legislative proposals at both the State and Federal levels. At the Annual Session members are assigned to committees and hearings are held on the proposals that have been submitted by its members to determine which should be carried forward. A proposal passed by the CSL must have passed four times:  by a Policy Committee in the author’s house (Senate or Assembly); on the floor of the author’s house; by a Policy Committee in the other house; and on the floor of the other house. Finally, the proposals to be carried forward are prioritized to select the casino canada top 10 state proposals and top 4 federal proposals.  The proposals that passed through this process are then submitted to legislators in the California Legislature which is encouraged to pass appropriate legislation implementing the proposal.

The session program books are published for Annual Sessions and contain a summary of all priority proposals and detailed text
