          SB  
          1171 (Committee on Judiciary) - As Amended May 16, 2016


                                  PROPOSED CONSENT


          SENATE VOTE:  38-0


          SUBJECT:  MAINTENANCE OF THE CODES


          KEY ISSUE:  SHOULD VARIOUS NON-SUBSTANTIVE, TECHNICAL CHANGES BE  
          MADE VIA THE "MAINTENANCE OF THE CODES" BILL SPONSORED BY THE  
          LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S OFFICE IN THIS ANNUAL TECHNICAL CLEAN-UP  
          BILL?


                                      SYNOPSIS


          This annual non-controversial bill makes numerous technical  
          changes in the California codes that have been recommended by  
          the Legislative Counsel's Office.  The proposed changes do not  
          make any substantive change in the law.


          SUMMARY:  Makes non-substantive changes to the codes by  
          recommendation of the Legislative Counsel's office.   








                                                                    SB 1171


                                                                    Page  2





          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.


          EXISTING LAW:  Unaffected.


          FISCAL EFFECT:  As currently in print this bill is keyed  
          non-fiscal.


          COMMENTS:  Each year, the Legislative Counsel's Office  
          identifies grammatical errors and other errors of technical  
          nature that have been inadvertently enacted into statutory law.   
          The annual "Maintenance of the Codes" bill is the vehicle for  
          implementing these wholesale corrections.  For inclusion into  
          the measure, the change must only be technical and may not  
          affect or enact substantive law.  Any proposed change that is  
          identified as substantive is automatically removed from the  
          bill.  It should be noted that this bill also includes an  
          "all-purpose" yielding clause to avoid any double jointing  
          problems that might otherwise occur.
