State government

• Legislation authored by state Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, to require more consumer information about furniture containing flame retardant chemicals passed the Assembly Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials Committee Tuesday with bipartisan support.

Senate Bill 1019 requires disclosure of the use or absence of flame retardant chemicals on existing furniture labels.

The bill will be heard next in the Assembly Business and Professions Committee June 24.

County government

• The Board of Supervisors adopted its $2.1 billion fiscal year 2014-15 budget, including up to $630,000 to reimburse the Superior Court for the cost of one court commissioner for the next three years.

City government

• Redwood City is moving to an appointment-only schedule for passport-related services starting July 14. Residents needing services can schedule between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and 9 a.m. to noon Fridays by calling 780-7220. Passport service in Spanish and English is at the City Clerk’s Office, City Hall, second floor, 1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City.

• The San Mateo County Harbor District Board of Commissioners will review and vote on its 2014-15 fiscal year budget Wednesday night. The proposed budget outlines drawing about $2 million from its $11.5 million in reserves to cover an estimated $10 million in expenses for the coming year. The board made a motion to adopt the budget at its June 5 meeting. However, it did not adopt the budget by resolution therefore it was not formally approved. The board will discuss and take action on the proposed budget at a meeting starting 6 p.m. June 18 at 33 Arroyo Drive, South San Francisco.

• The San Mateo City Council unanimously approved its $205 million budget for the 2014-15 fiscal year. The council also approved its fire department’s request to relocate Foster City’s Truck 28 to San Mateo as part of the joint agreement to share fire services between Belmont, Foster City and San Mateo.
