SACRAMENTO, Calif. - California lawmakers are advancing several bills spurred by the coronavirus as they race to beat an Aug. 31 adjournment deadline in a session shortened by the pandemic.

One expands paid sick leave for food sector workers, including farm workers, so those who are sick can afford to take time off.

A second would require the state and hospitals to each stockpile 90-day supplies of masks, gloves and other personal protective equipment for essential workers. Both are opposed by employer organizations but advanced to the Assembly Appropriations Committee Wednesday.

A third bill would allow high school seniors to get their diplomas even if their classes were interrupted this spring by the coronavirus.

We have beautiful weather around northern California right now, but it will get a lot more unsettled this weekend as a storm moves overhead. We can expect gusty wind, a big cooldown, and areas of light to moderate rain.
