          DIGEST:  This bill makes numerous technical changes in the  
          California codes that have been recommended by the Office of  
          Legislative Counsel.  The proposed changes do not make any  
          substantive change in the law.


          ANALYSIS:  


          This bill makes numerous technical changes in the California  
          code that have been recommended by the Office of Legislative  
          Counsel.


          Background


          Each year, the Office of Legislative Counsel identifies  
          grammatical errors and other errors of a technical nature that  
          have been inadvertently enacted into statutory law.  The annual  








                                                                    SB 1171  
                                                                    Page  2



          "Maintenance of the Codes" bill is the vehicle for implementing  
          these wholesale corrections.  In order to be included in the  
          bill, the change must be technical only and may not affect or  
          enact substantive law.  Consequently, any provision that is  
          identified as making a substantive change will be deleted by the  
          Office of Legislative Counsel.


          Proposed Section 330 on page 640 of this bill includes an  
          "all-purpose" yielding clause that avoids any double jointing  
          problems that might otherwise occur.
