Assembly Bill No. 214
CHAPTER 287

An act to amend Sections 22453 and 22457 of the Business and Professions Code, relating to business.

[ Approved by Governor  September 20, 2011. Filed with Secretary of State  September 21, 2011. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 214, Davis. Professional photocopiers.
Existing law provides for the registration and regulation of professional photocopiers. Existing law requires the issuance of an identification card by the county clerk for each professional photocopier and imposes an additional $10 payment for each additional card. Under existing law, additional cards for employees of professional photocopiers are issued upon the payment of $10.
This bill would instead authorize both of those additional types of cards to be issued upon the payment of an amount sufficient to cover the regulatory costs associated with the issuance of those cards. The bill would require the identification card for an employee of a professional photocopier or a partnership or corporation to contain a photograph of the employee. By imposing additional duties on county clerks, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 22453 of the Business and Professions Code is amended to read:

22453.
 An applicant shall pay a fee of one hundred seventy-five dollars ($175) to the county clerk at the time he or she files an application for registration. An additional fee for each card in an amount sufficient to cover the reasonable regulatory costs associated with the issuance of additional cards, as determined by the county clerk, shall be paid to the county clerk for each additional card of identification.

SEC. 2.

 Section 22457 of the Business and Professions Code is amended to read:

22457.
 (a) The county clerk shall maintain a register of professional photocopiers, assign a number to each professional photocopier, and issue an identification card to each one. Additional cards for employees of professional photocopiers shall be issued upon the payment of a fee for each card in an amount sufficient to cover the reasonable regulatory costs associated with the issuance of additional cards, as determined by the county clerk. Upon renewal of registration, the same number shall be assigned, provided there is no lapse in the period of registration.
(b) The identification card shall be a card not less than 31/4 inches by 2 inches, and shall contain at the top the title, “Professional Photocopier” followed by the registrant’s name, address, registration number, date of expiration, and county of registration. It shall also contain a photograph of the registrant in the lower left corner. The identification card for a partnership or corporation registration shall be issued in the name of the partnership or corporation, and shall not contain a photograph. The identification card for an employee of a professional photocopier or a partnership or corporation shall contain a photograph of the employee in the lower left corner.
(c) The identification card for an employee of a professional photocopier or a partnership or corporation shall be issued in the name of the employee and include “Employee of: [insert name of the professional photocopier or the partnership or corporation].”

SEC. 3.

 No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because a local agency or school district has the authority to levy service charges, fees, or assessments sufficient to pay for the program or level of service mandated by this act, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code.
