August 31 is the final deadline for California legislation to pass or fail in the 2021-22 session. If a bill passes the legislature, it will land on the governor’s desk and its fate will be determined there. The outcome of more than 1,600 bills must be decided by state lawmakers this month. Issues related to abortion, guns, COVID, homelessness, crime, and the environment are just a few of the topics that will be discussed, and for charter school supporters, three “charter killer” bills remain on the docket.
