INTRODUCED BY   Assembly Member Low

                        FEBRUARY 27, 2015

   An act to amend Section 40003 of the Public Resources Code,
relating to solid waste.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 1447, as introduced, Low. Solid waste: beverage containers.
    The California Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989, which is
administered by the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery,
generally regulates the management and recycling of solid waste. The
California Beverage Container Recycling and Litter Reduction Act
requires a distributor to pay a redemption payment for every beverage
container sold or offered for sale in the state to the department.
Existing law provides that nothing in the waste act affects the
duties of the department under the beverage act.
   This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to that provision.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION 1.  Section 40003 of the Public Resources Code is amended
to read:
   40003.  Nothing in this division abrogates, limits, or otherwise
affects the duties of the  Department of Conservation
  department  under the California Beverage
Container Recycling and Litter Reduction  Act, Division
  Act (Division  12.1 (commencing with Section
 14500)   14500))  .
