We will be working on the following resolutions, which we plan to submit to the Conference of Delegates of the State Bar Association for action in September. The resolutions must be submitted by the end of February. If you have ideas for more resolutions or you are interested in these resolutions in process, please join us! This is important Guild work with a visible impact.

  • Protection for Renters during Foreclosure Proceedings
  • Commercial Property Tax Reassessment (Prop 13 issue)
  • Removing 2/3 majority requirement to pass the California State budget (only two other states have such a requirement)
  • Protection for Mentally Ill Prisoners when incarcerated (needless deaths in custody)
  • Changing Election Code so that religious organizations do not serve as polling places (influencing voters and lack of compliance with Election Code) (this resolution undergoing significant redirection)
  • Supporting effective Citizen's Oversight of Police Departments
