SB 608 - Right to Rest/AB12

State Senator Carol Liu (Glendale) recently introduced SB 608.  This measure would enact the “The Right to Rest Act” which would establish the right to sit, stand, lean, kneel, squat, sleep or lie in any public space.  Public space is defined as “…any property that is owned, in whole or in part, by any state or local government entity or any property upon which there is an easement for public use and that is held open to the public, including, but not limited to, plazas, courtyards, parking lots, sidewalks, public transportation facilities and services, public buildings, shopping centers, and parks.”  It also establishes a private right of action for anyone denied this right.
What do you think?
For your convenience, a link to the complete bill text is provided below.

AB 12 has been introduced by Assembly member Cooley.  This is a common sense bill that Small Business California will be supporting.  The bill would require that each affected state agency review all regulations for duplicity, overlap, etc. and provide a notice of public hearing so that all can review the agencies findings.
