According to the tracker, it says it passed Appropriations and was placed on "suspense file".

SUSPENSE FILEA bill or set of bills, with a fiscal impact, set aside in Appropriations Committee by a majority of Members present and voting. These bills may be heard at a later hearing.

Does anybody know how to find out when a bill will be heard when it's the suspense file? I keep looking on the CA senate website and can't find anything. Trying to find out when AB1308 will be moved out of the suspense file and heard for the 2nd time. TIA.

Does anybody know where we can find out when a vote will be done for bills in the suspense file. I've looked and can't find anything.

AB1308 is currently in the suspense file and I'm just trying to find out when it'll get voted on and moved to the senate floor *positive thinking* lol

Thank you in advance!

From Elizabeth Calvin:

AB 1308
On suspense in the Senate: We’ll know if it is off suspense by August 30th. Assuming it is (which I feel reasonable positive about) we will hold a lobby day for AB 1308 on Friday Sept. 8th. We’ll start at 8:30 and end by 2:00. AB 1308 will be voted on the following week, so this represents the critical moment before its final vote.

Thumbs up Ab 1308 update

Yesterday on the California Legislature website for AB 1308 I saw there is a new hearing date set for this Friday 9/1/17 in the Senate. Please keep this in everyone's prayers! Looking forward to my Best Friend/Fiance coming home

Very good news.

For those who are new to following this process, I just wanted to remind everyone what is happening with the current SB 260/261 hearings. BPH set themselves a deadline of Dec 31, 2018 to hear all indeterminate sentences so that means by the end of this calendar year, all "to Life" inmates who have served their minimum sentence (20 or 25 years) should have had their hearing. If your loved one has served their 20/25 years and was not heard, please have them contact Jennifer Neill at Sac.

Determinate sentenced inmates have a longer wait. The deadline for hearing completion is Dec 31, 2021. For example, an inmate who reached their min 15 years in 2015, may be heard anytime between now and 2021. They are years behind.

If this AB passes (and I hope it does!) this will add to the backlog of hearing dates. I assume they will set new deadlines to accommodate the additional qualifying inmates. Expect that your LO may not be scheduled for a hearing for several years past their qualification date.

All this information is so helpful but so confusing at the same time.

AB 1308 will be heard on 9/1/17 in the appropriations committee for vote only. If voted out of suspense it will be heard on the senate floor.

Praying so very hard for this one.

AB #1308 PASSED. Its out of the appropriations committee


It's an expansion to SB 261, and it raises the age limit from 22 to 25.

With prayers and hopes it opens the door for LWOP (non juvenile) some day 🙏🏻.

Have you heard of anyone going before the 15th year with a determinate sentence? I only ask because my husband told me today his friend in his building was called to his YPH at his 11th year which I found so strange.

Wow! No, I haven't personally heard of that happening. I know they're bumping people up on the schedule (from January to Sept, for example) but they've all been at or past their min date. I know they do their consultations way in advance and those are ALL due to be completed by Dec 31, 2017.

While I'd be happy to hear they're moving things up, they need to finish those who's date has past or there are going to be some cranky folks lining up with questions. lol

If anyone is watching the parole schedule for a loved one, you can find it here.

Default Ab 1308 update

Can someone tell me what is going on with AB 1308?? I've been closely monitoring it and for the past 3 days I kept seeing the 3rd reading was on the agenda in the Senate but all 3 times the file # was skipped in committee how does that work? And I'm curious if the 3rd pass in Senate is all that is needed to pass the bill and get signed into law?? If anyone knows any information is greatly appreciated Thank you in advance!

They were holding off on it so supporters could have a lobby day in Sacramento today to secure votes. Opposition was up there as well spreading false information so they are working hard to try to get those needed votes.

It will definitely be heard sometime next week.

AB 1308 is on file again. But this time with a floor manager! So hopefully it'll get heard today!

Either way we will have an answer for sure by the end of the week. Hopeful and praying for good news.

CARES CALL TONIGHT

KIM McGILL of the Youth Justice Coalition is our guest on the CARES Family and Friends Call.
Join us on September 19th, 2017 at 8pm.
Everyone is welcome.
Call: (515) 604-9384; Code: 313882#

Youth Offender Parole extended, LWOP changed... Lots of amazing bills just passed. Learn about them on the CARES call.

Kim McGill is a dynamic and powerful speaker joining us to describe important bills that have passed in the legislature and what ones need help getting the governor's signature in order to become law.

Kim will describe what these bills will do if signed into law, and she'll answer your questions! An organizer with the Youth Justice Coalition, she has years of experience fighting for change and passing bills. She also trains youth organizers about issues in the justice system, police and prison funding, the school to prison pipeline, and more. She works to create grassroots movements to accomplish change, end inequities in the justice system, and create alternatives to incarceration. If you haven't heard any of Kim's presentations, check out these videos of Kim in action: Watch and listen here as Kim describes the importance of activism and organizing, and here, where Kim testifies before the LA Board of Supervisors. She is a powerful advocate, and works tirelessly to make justice real in the United States.

A number of really important bills passed in the legislature this week. A few minutes ago, the Senate gave the final vote to pass SB 394, a bill that gives a real chance for parole to youth with LWOP!

Now, Governor Brown has 30 days to sign or veto these bills. Send a letter to the Governor and help us take these bills over the finish line. And join us Tuesday night to learn more!

If the Governor signs these bills, it means:
Youth sentenced to life without parole get parole hearings!
Youth Offender Parole eligibility extended through age 25!
Youth 15 and younger no longer alone with police when facing interrogation!
Young people could seal serious juvenile records, making it easier to get jobs!
Gun and drug enhancements would be limited!
