LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 544, as introduced, Hayashi. State surplus personal property: centralized sale.
Existing law requires the Department of General Services to perform various functions and duties with respect to state property, and authorizes that department to sell, lease, exchange, or transfer specified parcels of real property throughout the state.
This bill would require the department to establish a program to centralize the sale of state surplus personal property using the best available technology, including, but not limited to, the Internet. This bill would also require the department to impose an additional charge on each item of state surplus personal property that is sold to recover its costs in establishing the program.

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