SB50 Failed in Senate Today

SB50 did not receive enough votes to pass in the CA State Senate today. With 40 seats in the senate, it needed 21 yes votes to pass the upper house. On a vote of 18 yes votes to 15 no votes, it failed.

It still has a chance for another vote on "reconsideration" which may happen tomorrow. Bills typically don't pass on reconsideration, but there is a chance.  The last day for a vote is tomorrow (Thursday 1/30)
