          MADE VIA THE "MAINTENANCE OF THE CODES" BILL SPONSORED BY THE

          BILL?
                                          
           FISCAL EFFECT  :  As currently in print this bill is keyed

                                      SYNOPSIS

          This non-controversial bill makes numerous technical changes in 
          the California codes that have been recommended by the 
          Legislative Counsel's Office.  The proposed changes would not 
          make any substantive change in the law.

           SUMMARY  :  Makes non-substantive changes to the codes by 
          recommendation of the Legislative Counsel's office.  
          Specifically,  this bill  makes various grammatical and other 
          technical changes suggested by the Office of Legislative Counsel 
          in order to correct non-substantive errors that exist in the 
          original bill text.

           EXISTING LAW  :  Unaffected

           COMMENTS  :  Each year, Legislative Counsel's Office identifies 
          grammatical errors and other errors of a technical nature that 
          have been inadvertently enacted into statutory law.  The annual 
          "Maintenance of the Codes" bill is the vehicle for implementing 
          the wholesale corrections.  For inclusion into the measure, the 
          change must be technical only and may not affect or enact 
          substantive law.  Any proposed change which is identified as 
          having a substantive change is automatically excised from the 
          bill.
