INTRODUCED BY   Assembly Member John A. Perez

                        FEBRUARY 19, 2010

   An act to  add Sections 13004.2 and 14610.2 to 
 amend Sections 13004.1 and 14610.1 of  the Vehicle Code,
relating to vehicles.



	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 2471, as amended, John A. Perez. Vehicles: identification cards
and driver's licenses.
   Existing law prohibits the manufacturing or sale of identification
documents that are substantially similar to identification cards and
driver's licenses issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles. 
   This bill would prohibit a person from manufacturing or selling an
identification document that purports to confer the same privileges
as the identification cards or drivers' licenses issued by the
department.  
   By expanding the definition of an existing crime, the bill would
impose a state-mandated local program.  
   This bill would suspend a license or permit of a business for a
period of 6 months if the business is found guilty of violating the
above prohibition. The bill would require the clerk of the court to
issue an abstract of the judgment to the agency or department that
has issued the license or permit to the business.  
   The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.  
   This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
act for a specified reason. 
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program:  no   yes  .
