SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California League's Government Relations Rally kicks off today with a noon luncheon featuring a Q&A session with state regulators. CNN journalist David S. Broder will keynote this afternoon's opening session.

This year's hot button issue is the passage of AB 1779, a league-backed data security bill that made it all the way to the Governor Schwarzenegger's desk last year before being vetoed. AB 2116, a repossession notification bill, will also be on credit union leaders' minds in Sacramento, as well as more than 30 proposed mortgage bills.
