          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.

          The Senate amendments add further non-substantive changes to the  
          codes as recommended by Legislative Counsel.

          EXISTING LAW:  Unaffected

          FISCAL EFFECT:  None

                                                                    Page  2

          COMMENTS:  Each year, the 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 removed from  
          this bill.
