Existing law requires the Secretary of State to prepare a state voter information guide. Existing law requires the Secretary to ensure that a sufficient number of guides are printed and requires the Office of State Printing to print the guides. If the Director of General Services determines that the office cannot print the guides adequately, competently, or satisfactorily, the Secretary is required to contract with a private printing concern for the printing of the guides, as specified.
This bill would also require the Secretary of State to contract with a private printing concern for the printing of the guides, as specified, if the Director of General Services determines that the office cannot print the guides in a timely manner.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
