LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2036, Gipson. State Capitol: Mervyn M. Dymally bust.
Existing law prescribes various duties for the Department of General Services in connection with development and maintenance of the park around the State Capitol Building.
Existing law authorizes the Mervyn Dymally Memorial Capitol Foundation, upon establishment, in consultation with the Department of General Services, to plan a bust of Mervyn Dymally to be placed in the State Capitol Building Annex, and assigns that foundation various duties associated with the design, construction, and maintenance of that bust.
This bill would instead provide that authority and assign related duties, as specified, to the Mervyn M. Dymally African American Political and Economic Institute. The bill would prohibit installation of the bust until specified acts have occurred.
