           DIGEST  :    This bill makes additional changes in the statutes  
          necessary to reflect the changes made by the Governor's  
          Reorganization Plan 2 (GRP2) as introduced to the Legislature on  
          May 3, 2012, and made effective on July 3, 2012.

           Senate Floor Amendments  of 8/21/14 strike a particular Section  
          of the bill which would have reallocated specified duties of the  
          abolished Business, Transportation and Housing Agency to the  
          Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development; and make  
          technical changes.

           ANALYSIS  :    The California Constitution grants the Governor the  
          authority to reorganize the functions of executive officers and  
          agencies.  Existing statutes set forth definitions and  
          procedures concerning how the Legislature reviews and reports on  
          a Governor's reorganization plan. 

          The Legislature may elect to vote on the plan, or allow the plan  
          to become effective without action on the first day after 60  
          days of continuous session following receipt of the plan. 

          Once the plan becomes effective, a bill, or bills, must be  
          introduced, not later than the next regular session, effecting  
          such changes in the statutes as may be necessary to reflect the  
          changes made by the reorganization plan.  Failure to enact such  
          a bill shall not affect the validity of the plan.

          This bill makes additional changes in the statutes necessary to  
          reflect the changes made by GRP2 as introduced to the  
          Legislature on May 3, 2012, and made effective on July 3, 2012.   
          Specifically, this bill reallocates specified duties of  
          reorganized and abolished state entities and their officers to  
          established state entities including, but not limited to the  
          following:

           1. Reallocates specified duties of the abolished Business,  
             Transportation and Housing Agency.

           2. Reallocates certain existing duties to the Department of  
             Business Oversight and the Department of Justice.

           3. Repeals provisions and authorities, as specified, of the  
             California Collider Commission.

           4. Makes other technical, nonsubstantive, and conforming  
             changes to implement GRP2.

           Background
           
          The Brown Administration introduced GRP2 on March 30, 2012, and  
          upon review by the Legislature, it became effective July 3,  
          2012.  This bill makes conforming changes in the statutes  
          necessary to reflect the changes made by GRP2.


                                                                CONTINUED





                                                                    AB 2763
                                                                     Page  
          3

          The Governor's office states that GRP2 makes government less  
          costly, more efficient and more sensible through changes,  
          including, but not limited to, restructuring the State and  
          Consumer Services and the Business, Transportation and Housing  
          agencies and other scattered government entities into the  
          following three agencies with coordinated and consolidated  
          functions:

           1. The Government Operations Agency - responsible for  
             administering state operations, such as procurement,  
             information technology and human resources;

           2. The Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency -  
             responsible for licensing and oversight of industries,  
             businesses and other professionals; and

           3. The Transportation Agency - responsible for addressing the  
             state's transportation needs.

          In addition to creating three new agencies, GRP2 restructures  
          other parts of the state's organization.  This bill contains  
          additional technical and conforming changes to effect the  
          implementation of GRP2.
