A Senate floor debate on AB 845, legislation which appropriates $10.5 million for transitional housing for young adults leaving foster care homes in the state, had been expected on Thursday.

But the bill has been pulled off the file.

"The governor hasn't secured the needed Republican votes to move it off the floor," said Alicia Trost, a spokeswoman for Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata.

The bill is supported by the governor and legislative Democrats, but because of a urgency clause it needs GOP support.

Aaron McLear, a spokesman for the governor, said the governor's office is working with lawmakers "to make them understand why we think it is an important piece of legislation."

Also missing from the Senate docket is community college board of governors appointee John Koeberer. His nomination is set to expire on June 26, but Thursday represents his last best chance at confirmation, as the Senate may not meet again before then.
