                                      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.
