|(April 22, 2019, 7:25 a.m.) -- Following-up on LBREPORT.com's continuing detailed coverage of SB 50 (most recently here and here, others preceding), on April 22, 2019 at 5:57 p.m. LBREPORT.com invited statements from the three members (chosen by the Mayor) of the City Council's "State Legislation Committee" -- Al Austin (chair), Lena Gonzalez (vice chair) and Stacy Mungo (member) -- plus Councilman Daryl Supernaw (whose 4th district includes large single family home areas) regarding their records to date on SB 50 (emails to them and in some cases to their chiefs of staff.)
Councilmember: In connection with our coverage of SB 50 (approaching an April 24 state Senate Committee hearing), LBREPORT.com invites a statement from you for publication on why to date you've chosen not to agendize SB 50 for a Council voted position consistent with your 2018 voted position on SB 827 and the Council-adopted 2019 State Legislative Agenda. We’ve told our readers that we plan to publish responses from Councilmembers on April 23. Please advise and thank you.
Committee member Stacy Mungo was the only Councilmember of the four who responded.
"My staff started the process and we were asked to sign into another councilman’s agenda. We agreed."
[We thanked Councilwoman Mungo and invited clarification of the term "another councilman's agenda."]
As of dawn Aprilo 24, the other three Council incumbents -- Al Austin, Lena Gonzalez and Daryl Supernaw hadn't responded to our invitation for statements.

|Today's (April 24) state Senate Committee hearing could advance SB 50, or a combined bill (SB 50 + SB 4, the latter a more moderate measure.) If so, LB Councilmembers will still face a continuing choice of either taking a position on the neighborhood-impacting bill(s) or remaining mum.
If SB 50 clears today's Committee and a subsequent Senate Appropriations Committee hearing (supposed to limit its review to state budget impacts), it will go the state Senate floor. If it receives majority approval in the Dem-majority state Senate, it will go to the Dem-majority Assembly where the process repeats. If it clears the Assembly, it will return to the state Senate for another vote if it's been amended in the Assembly. It will then go the Governor and if he signs it, it becomes law.
LBREPORT.com has provided detailed continuing coverage of SB 50 since its introduction in December 2018 (after a similar but narrower bill stalled in 2018 (SB 827 reported in detail last year by LBREPORT.com.)
