Senate Bill 1000, also known as the "Public Right to Police Radio Communications Act," responds to a recent trend among California's law-enforcement agencies to encrypt their radio communications since early 2021, a move that prevents journalists, citizen watchdogs and other residents from monitoring police activities.

Bill to restore public access to police radios passes state Senate
May 27, 2022

A bill by state Sen. Josh Becker that would require police agencies to unencrypt their radios and restore the public’s ability to listen in passed the Senate yesterday (May 26) on a 25-8 vote.
Senate Bill 1000 now heads to the Assembly, where it will go through the same process as the Senate. A public safety committee and an appropriations committee will consider it before all 80 Assembly members vote on whether to send the bill to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk.
The bill needed 21 “yes” votes to pass yesterday. It was originally on the calendar for Tuesday, but Becker said he had to make sure he had the votes. Seven Republicans and one Democrat voted no in the 40-person chamber.

Just curious, how do some of you feel about the chances of this making it all the way through and possibly seeing some reversing of encryption?
