CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2013–2014 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 726


Introduced by Assembly Member Fong

February 21, 2013


An act to amend Section 1550 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to community care facilities.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 726, as introduced, Fong. Community care facilities: licensure.
Existing law, the California Community Care Facilities Act, provides for the licensure and regulation of community care facilities, as defined, by the State Department of Social Services. Violation of the provisions relating to community care facilities is a misdemeanor. Under existing law, the department may deny an application for, or suspend or revoke, any license or administrator certificate issued under the act, or may deny the transfer of a specified license, for, among other things, violations by the licensee or special permit holder of the act.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.
