As Amends the Law Today


 Section 1596.819 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

 (a) A licensed child day care facility shall prohibit the use or possession of choking hazards, including push pins, small toys, marbles, and other items that measure less than 1.75 inches in diameter in any area of the facility accessible to children 6 years of age or younger.
(b) The department shall determine compliance with this section only during a regularly scheduled, authorized inspection, and shall not be required to conduct separate and independent visits.
SEC. 2.
 No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution.
