California Legislature—2013–14 Regular Session

Assembly BillNo. 791

Introduced by Assembly Member Hagman

February 21, 2013

An act to amend Section 7506.5 of the Business and Professions Code, relating to repossessors.


AB 791, as introduced, Hagman. Collateral recovery: repossessors.

Existing law, the Collateral Recovery Act, provides for the licensure and regulation of repossession agencies by the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services under the supervision and control of the Director of Consumer Affairs. Existing law requires an applicant for a qualification certificate or for an initial registration or a reregistration to submit an application to the bureau and include certain personal information in the application that is confidential and is prohibited from being disclosed to the public.

This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to these provisions.

Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no. State-mandated local program: no.

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
