Update on UCL "reform" activity
The initiative measure sponsored by Californians to Stop Shakedown Lawsuits is now one of five initiatives "pending verification of signature count," as the Secretary of State reports here.

In related news, AB 2604, the UCL "reform" bill introduced by Republican Assemblyman Bill Pacheco, was gutted earlier this week. AB 2604 is now an act to amend the Labor Code and has nothing to do with the UCL. I'm no expert on legislative maneuverings, but my guess is the bill's author perceived that the UCL initiative was headed for the ballot, so decided to use AB 2604 as a vehicle for other legislation. Here is AB 2604 before the amendment; here it is after.
