AB 2079, as introduced, Harkey. Government liability.
Existing law governs the tort liability and immunity of, and claims and actions against, public entities and their officers and employees. Existing law defines the term “regulation” for purposes of those provisions as a rule, regulation, order, or standard, having the force of law, adopted by an employee or agency pursuant to certain federal and state laws, as specified.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
