Two proposals have been published for comment at http://www.courts.ca.gov/policyadmin-invitationstocomment.htm.

The Advisory Committee on Criminal Jury Instructions is seeking comment on new and revised instructions reflecting developments in the law. The deadline for comment is Friday, January 6, 2017.
 
 
SP16-13: Appellate Procedure: Expedited Review of Certain Orders Denying Motions to Compel Arbitration
Recent legislation requires the Court of Appeal to issue its decision in cases involving the review of certain orders denying motions to compel arbitration no later than 100 days after the notice of appeal is filed. The legislation also requires the Judicial Council to adopt rules to implement this requirement and to establish a shortened notice of appeal period in these cases. These proposed rules are intended to fulfill this legislative obligation. The deadline for comment is Wednesday, January 11, 2017.
