          COMMENTS:


          Purpose. AB 1352 (Levine), Chapter 274, Statutes of 2013), which  
          was sponsored by the Judicial Coucil, modified the number of  
          years that various court records must be retained, with the  
          intent to bring the retention timelines for particular  
          violations in line retention requirements for similar  
          violations. This bill, as described above, corrects a drafting  
          error in the prior legislation.
