Assembly Bill No. 1822
CHAPTER 317

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1822, Bill Berryhill. California Architects Board.
Existing law, the Architects Practice Act, provides for the licensure and regulation of architects by the California Architects Board, which consists of 5 architect members appointed by the Governor, 3 public members appointed by the Governor, and 2 public members appointed by the Legislature, as specified. Existing law requires these members to serve 4-year terms.
This bill would provide for the staggering of the terms of the members appointed by the Governor whose terms commence on specified dates by requiring certain of those members to serve 5- and 6-year terms, as specified.
Under existing law, an individual applicant for a license to practice architecture is required to provide his or her social security number to the board. Existing law prohibits the board from processing an application unless the applicant furnishes this information, and requires the board to report a licensee who fails to provide this information to the Franchise Tax Board.
This bill would authorize submission of an individual tax identification number or another identification number, as determined by the board, in place of a social security number where the applicant is not eligible for a social security number and is not out of compliance with a child support judgment or order, as specified.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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