After the Assembly floor session adjourns today under the dome, the Assembly Appropriations Committee members have their work cut out for them.

Today's the deadline to move bills to the floor, and the committee will be plowing through the 18 bills on its regular agenda plus the 300 or so bills in the suspense file.

A measure sure to be closely watched in Sacramento and beyond? Assembly Bill 1743.

Assemblyman Ed Hernandez's bill cracks down on placement agents -- the middlemen who reap millions from selling deals to CalPERS and CalSTRS.

AB 1743 would essentially ban contingency fees by requiring placement agents to register as lobbyists. It wouldn't apply to in-house employees of investment managers.

Action on the measure got delayed last week over proposed amendments that would sunset the new rules after five years.

Here's a sampling of other bills in the rather wide-ranging mix:

Assembly Bill 2650 to prohibit any medical marijuana cooperative, dispensary, operator or provider who possesses, cultivates or distributes medical marijuana from being located within 1,000 feet of a school. If a local ordinance is more restrictive, it would prevail.

Assembly Bill 1930 to limit lead or arsenic found in glass beads used in certain types of blasting equipment.

Assembly Bill 2208 to make it a misdemeanor for a registered sex offender who's on probation or parole to use a Internet social networking website if the Internet was used to commit the crime or the crime victim was under 18.

Assembly Bill 2578 to require HMOs and health insurers, starting Jan. 1, 2012, to get approval from the Department of Managed Health Care or the Department of Insurance before raising premiums, co-payments, co-insurance or deductibles.

POLL: Political junkies, bate your breath. Dan Schnur, the director of the University of Southern California's Unruh Institute for Politics, and others will be teaming up Sunday to release the results of the latest USC / Los Angeles Times poll on the governor's race and other hot topics.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com

Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at feedback@sacbee.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to feedback@sacbee.com. Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
