/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The California State Assembly Judiciary Committee
passed legislation on June 27 that would grant legal rights to
Armenian Genocide survivors and their heirs to recover bank deposits
wrongfully withheld since the Armenian Genocide by giving California
courts jurisdiction over banks operating in the Ottoman Empire,
reported Armenian National Committee of America. The bill passed the
Assembly Judiciary Committee with a vote of 6-1 and is expected to
go to the floor of the Assembly for vote on August 7, 2006 before
going to the Governor. The State Senate has already passed the bill,
which is authored by Senators Jackie Kanchelian-Speier and Charles
"Chuck" Poochigian, and sponsored by ANCA-WR.
