No. 1870

Introduced  by  Assembly Member Fong

February 22, 2012

An act to amend Section 9575 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to mausoleums and columbariums.


AB 1870, as introduced, Fong. Mausoleums and columbariums: building permits.
Existing law, the Mausoleum and Columbarium Law, establishes minimum requirements for the construction of mausoleums and columbariums, as defined, and prohibits the construction or alteration of a mausoleum or columbarium without a building permit from the appropriate local department. Existing law requires this permit application to be accompanied by specified documentation, including the written approval of the local cemetery authority of the plans and specifications for the work to be performed.
Under existing law, if the person to whom a permit or approval has been issued refuses or neglects to comply with applicable law, or makes a false statement or misrepresentation, as specified, the relevant department is required to revoke or cancel the permit or approval it has previously issued.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to the law relating to mausoleum and columbarium building permits.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
