CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1521


Introduced by Assembly Member Kamlager

February 19, 2021


An act to amend Section 19100 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to earthquake safety.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1521, as introduced, Kamlager. Earthquake protection standards.
Existing law requires that every building or structure, and every portion thereof, be designed and constructed to resist stresses produced by lateral forces as provided in the State Building Standards Code. Existing law requires city and county building departments to enforce these provisions and prohibits a person from constructing a building subject to these requirements without obtaining a written permit for that purpose from the appropriate enforcement agency. Existing law excludes certain buildings from these requirements, including a building not intended primarily for occupancy by human beings and located entirely outside the limits of a city or city and county.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to these exclusions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 19100 of the Health and Safety Code is amended to read:
