Series 2  Hearing Files 1995-2004

Physical Description: 68 file folders


Arranged chronologically by date of hearing.

Scope and Content Note

Hearing files may consist of agendas, transcripts, audio discs/cassettes, video discs/cassettes, and background information for regular session hearings, as well as interim hearings and select joint hearings. Audiovisual materials have been separated into a cold storage vault for preservation purposes. Separation sheets within the hearing files will alert the researcher to the existence of such material.
Of particular interest are hearing files relating to the merger and acquisition of California financial institutions by foreign entities and tribal governments (1997-1999) and the hearing on predatory lending practices (2/21/2001). In addition to the routine hearing of bills, researchers may also be interested in other hearing file topics, which include identity theft, ATM and bank fees, federal preemption, and credit reporting.
A chronological list of hearings is available in Appendix A of the master finding aid at the California State Archives.
