LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1139, as introduced, Jeffries. Bills.
Existing law provides that a bill that passes the Legislature and is not returned by the Governor within 12 days becomes law. However, a bill that passes the Legislature before September 1 of the 2nd calendar year of the biennium of the legislative session and is in the Governor’s possession on or after that date, and is not returned by the Governor on or before September 30, becomes law.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
