CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill No. 965

An act to amend Section 284 of the Food and Agricultural Code, relating to food and agriculture.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 965, as introduced, McGuire. Secretary of Food and Agriculture: fiscal duties: collection.
Existing law sets forth various fiscal powers and duties of the Secretary of Food and Agriculture, and authorizes the secretary to remove from the Department of food and Agriculture’s records an amount due pursuant to the provisions of the Food and Agricultural Code if the amount is $5 or less and the secretary either finds that the amount is too small to justify the cost of its collection, or believes that collection is improbable.
This bill would increase the maximum amount from $5 to $25, and would also make nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

He department, and shall not, thereafter, not be held accountable for its collection.
