Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Californians hoping to enter the Legislature's information website to read the dozens of bills signed into law this week by Gov. Jerry Brown were out of luck this morning.

Don't blame your keyboard.

Public access to the Assembly and Senate web pages, and their bill information service, was denied because of a computer breakdown that lasted from about 8:45 a.m. to about 11:15 a.m.

Tracy Fong, a chief deputy director in the Legislative Data Center, said she did not know precisely what caused the breakdown but that public access resumed once technicians isolated the problem.

The temporary breakdown made the public unable to retrieve the text, analysis, and legislative votes regarding bills introduced in the current session or acted upon in years past.

The governor's office was not affected by the computer glitch. Other state agencies were not affected either, Fong said.

* Last updated at 11:20 a.m. to reflect resumption of public access.
