Does anyone know if this SB 1000 bill is held in submission in the Appropriations Committee as a technicality to run out the clock on the 2022 session to kill the bill or is it being held in submission as the Committee fleshes out the cost of this transition to hybrid for the 120 California agencies that took the USDOJ's advice to go totally encrypted and still stands a chance for Assembly ratification?
