relating to highways.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 1037, as introduced, Hernandez. State highways.
   Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has
full possession and control of the state highway system. Existing law
requires the department to keep in repair all objects or markers
adjacent to a state highway that have been erected to mark registered
historical places and to keep those markers free from vegetation
that may obscure them from view.
   This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.
