TO: CVF-NEWS FROM: Kim Alexander, CVF President DATE: April 16, 2001 RE: Upcoming CA redistricting & voting tech hearings
The California Assembly Elections Committee has two important hearings coming up dealing with redistricting and voting technology legislation:
1. On Tuesday, April 17 the Assembly Elections Committee will hold a public hearing to discuss its plans for ensuring public input into the California redistricting process. The hearing begins at 2:30 p.m. in the State Capitol, Room 126.
If you cannot attend in person, you should be able to access the Assembly's in-house television feed via the California Channel's web site and watch the hearing live on the Internet. Visit http://www.calchannel.com/daily.htm to access the four live video feeds from the Capitol on the Internet (this hearing should be available on feed #2). FYI, Cal Channel carries these feeds from the legislature online every day, so if there is something happening in the Capitol that you want to watch, there is a good chance you will be able to view it through Cal Channel's web site.
2. On Monday, April 23 the Assembly Elections Committee will hear three voting technology bills:
* Assembly Bill 28 authored by Assemblyman Robert Pacheco
* Assembly Bill 55, authored by Assemblyman Kevin Shelley
* Assembly Bill 56, authored by Assembly Speaker Bob Hertzberg
You can access the text, status and history for all three bills from CVF's Voting Technology Resources web page,
The Assembly Election Committee's web page is located at http://www.assembly.ca.gov/erca, where some information on California's redistricting process and a list of committee members and their email
addresses is available.
Have a great week,
