          SUMMARY  :  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 2, 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.

           The Senate amendments  address chaptering conflicts.

           EXISTING LAW  , through the California Constitution, grants the  
          Governor the authority to reorganize the functions of executive  
          officers and agencies.  Government Code Sections beginning with  
          12080 set forth definitions and procedures whereby the  
          Legislature reviews and reports on the Governor's reorganization  

          The Legislature may choose to vote on the plan or allow the plan  
          to become effective on the first day after 60 days of continuous  
          session after receipt of the plan.  Once the plan becomes  
          effective, a bill, or bills, must be introduced, not later than  


                                                                  AB 2763
                                                                  Page  2

          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.

           FISCAL EFFECT  :  According to the Senate Appropriations  
          Committee, pursuant to Senate Rule 28.8, negligible state costs.
