CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2011–2012 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1274


Introduced  by  Assembly Member Donnelly

February 18, 2011


An act to amend Section 114 of the Penal Code, relating to false documents.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1274, as introduced, Donnelly. False documents.
Existing law, added by Proposition 187, adopted by the voters November 8, 1994, provides that any person who uses false documents to conceal his or her true citizenship or resident alien status is guilty of a felony, and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for 5 years or by a fine of $25,000. Proposition 87 authorizes the Legislature to substantively amend the proposition absent voter approval by a statute that furthers the purposes of the proposition and is passed with a 2/3 vote of each house of the Legislature.
This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to these provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 114 of the Penal Code is amended to read:

114.
 Any Every person who uses false documents to conceal his or her true citizenship or resident alien status is guilty of a felony, and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for five years or by a fine of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000).
