Description
The Senate Industrial Relations Committee Records reflect the activity of the committee in overseeing legislation and other matters affecting the California Labor Code.
Background
The Senate Rules Committee created the Senate Industrial Relations Committee in 1970. The Industrial Relations Committee evolved from the Senate Committee on Insurance and Financial Institutions, which had reviewed bills concerning the Unemployment Insurance Code, workers' compensation and insurance, and the unemployed. Initially, the seven members of the new Industrial Relations Committee considered "all bills relating to labor, public employees, non-certificated public school employees, business regulation, the unemployed, workmen's compensation and insurance, and bills amending the Unemployment Insurance Code" (California Legislature at Sacramento, 1970, p93). In 1971, the Committee's responsibilities were reduced when business regulation bills were assigned to the Business and Professions Committee. Then, in 1973 public employee bills were assigned to the new Public Employment and Retirement Committee.
