Scope and Content Note
Most bill files include all or some of the following items: bill analyses, amendments and resolutions, author's statements,
testimony, press releases, newspaper clippings, correspondence, roll calls, and records of votes. Of particular interest are
bills relating to discrimination, such as the Dignity for All Students Act (AB1001 in 1995-1996, AB101 in 1997-1998, AB222
in 1999-2000, and AB537 in 1999-2000), AB310 of the 1997-1998 session (which would have strengthened the state's Fair Employment
and Housing Act), and SB1437 of the 2005-2006 session (which would have included the contributions to society of prominent
gays and lesbians in state-mandated public school curricula). Bills relating to abortion rights include AB525 of the 1999-2000
session, which imposed disclosure requirements on religiously owned hospitals which object to providing reproductive services
such as birth control and abortion, and SB1301 of 2001-2002, which established the right to a pre-viability abortion as a
positive right in California law.
