The Assembly Appropriations Committee moved 221 bills proposing $700 million in spending off the suspense file and onto the floor Friday in preparation for a vote next week.
The committee, which is tasked with reviewing all bills with a fiscal implication for the state, considered 365 bills in all.
Appropriations Chair Mike Gatto, D-Silver Lake, said the committee cut 80 percent of the $3.5 billion in proposed spending on the suspense file.
"I think we always have to weigh the costs and benefits of bills before us," Gatto said. "We did a good job of doing that."
Among the bills that failed to pass the committee were:
AB 187 by Assemblyman Bob Bonta would have added 10 percent tax on ammunition sales that would support public safety and mental health programs.
AB 1326 by Assemblyman Jeff Gorell, R-Camarillo, would have created a tax credit for drone manufacturing.
AB 299 by Assemblyman Chris Holden, D-Pasadena, would have prohibited health plans or insurers from making mail-order pharmacies mandatory.
AB 332 by Assemblyman Isadore Hall, D-Compton, would have required condoms in the adult film industry.
Among the bills that passed:
AB 48 by Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, would require ammunition dealers to report a sale of more than 3,000 rounds of ammunition to the Department of Justice.
AB 47 by Assemblyman Gatto, would increase penalties for prank 911 calls, a practice known as swatting.
AB 999 by Assemblyman Bonta, requires prisons to provide inmates with access to condoms when they are available.
