Legislative Committee

Effective July 1, 2017, Assembly Bill (AB) 102 restructured the BOE into three separate agencies: Board of Equalization (BOE), California Department of Tax and Fee Administration, and the Office of Tax Appeals. AB 102 provides that the BOE's duties, powers, and responsibilities are those imposed or conferred upon the Board by the California Constitution and any related duty, power, or responsibility conferred by statute.

At the September 26, 2017 Board Meeting, considering the restructuring of the BOE, the Board Members agreed to terminate the standing committees (including the Legislative Committee).

The following provides historical information on previous Legislative Committee Meetings.
