California legislative switcheroo could 'gut-and-amend' bridge bill into coronavirus vaccine mandate

The legislative screen allows state lawmakers to fast-track their agenda without going through committees and other early hurdles, according to state Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, a Republican and candidate to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom in next month’s recall election.

“What it does is it takes a bill that’s already been through the whole [legislative] process and strips out its contents entirely – then puts in something entirely different,” he told Fox News Friday. “So it skips over, short-circuits, the entire legislative process and can just be passed without much scrutiny at all.”
