AB 748 — Video and Audio Recordings Disclosure

Requires the release of recordings from body-worn cameras within 45 days of an incident, including if officers fired shots or if a use-of-force causes death or great bodily harm. Law goes into effect July 1, 2019.

AB 1793 — Cannabis Convictions: Resentencing
