LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1728, as introduced, Ramos. Elementary and secondary education: definitions: writing.
Existing law establishes the Education Code and sets forth general provisions, rules of construction, and definitions that govern its construction. For purposes of the code, existing law defines “writing” to include any form of recorded message capable of comprehension by ordinary visual means and requires a notice, report, statement, or record that is required or authorized by the code to be made in writing in the English language, unless it is expressly provided otherwise.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to those provisions regarding the definition of “writing” and related requirements for purposes of the Education Code.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 70 of the Education Code is amended to read:

70.
 (a) Writing includes any form of recorded message capable of comprehension by ordinary visual means. Whenever any If a notice, report, statement, or record is required or authorized by this code, it shall be made in writing in the English language unless it is expressly provided otherwise.

Wherever any

(b) If a notice or other communication is required by this code to be mailed by registered mail by or to any a person or corporation, the mailing of such the notice or other communication by certified mail shall be deemed to be a sufficient compliance with the requirements of law.
