California Bail Bond Bill Fails to Advance After SFAA & APCIA Effort

The California Assembly Insurance Committee voted down SB 318 ending the possibility for the legislation to advance during this year’s session. The bill would have applied consumer lending statutes to the contract for bail premium financing on a retroactive basis, potentially invalidating hundreds of existing bail contracts in the state. The bill was strongly opposed by the bail agents and sureties. SFAA and APCIA successfully advocated against the advancement of the bill in the Assembly Insurance Committee, preventing the legislation from receiving the requisite eight votes to advance for final consideration.
