Beginner's Guide to Reading California Bills and Bill Pages
 
There's a good 'How a bill becomes law' article, but this thread is about the mechanics we can see when checking for current information.

I'll start with a brand new 2009 bill, AB357.

Understand it can take a couple of days for a Bill Page to be updated; at critical moments, we usually maintain an 'action thread' on a bill here at Calguns.

Clicking on that link shows this:

The Status link will have in it only the latest thing. Today, that shows

Most of that is obvious.

At some point, the Authors line may include co-authors.

The House Location will change if this bill passes the vote of the full Assembly.

Committee Location tells us that this bill has been assigned to the Assembly Public Safety Committee. The Senate ALSO has a Public Safety Committee, so it's important to keep them straight.

BILL HISTORY

Mar. 9        Referred to Com. on  PUB. S.
Feb. 20        From printer.  May be heard in committee  March  22.
Feb. 19        Read first time.  To print.

Note that the new information is at the top of the Bill History list.

Right now, the interesting line is "Feb. 20 From printer. May be heard in committee March 22". Assembly rules require a bill to be in print for 30 days before it can be acted on - hearings and votes are 'actions'.

The "March 22" thing is actually off; the ASM Pub S Committee meets on Tuesdays, so the first Tuesday 30 days after Feb 20 is March 24. That's the first date anything can happen 'of record'.

It is possible for an author to amend a bill within this 30 days, so what we see as introduced may not be what a committee sees at first consideration. Such an amended bill should also appear on this Bill Page.

Here's the bill text as introduced (snipped for length)
Quote:

BILL NUMBER: AB 357 INTRODUCED
BILL TEXT


INTRODUCED BY Assembly Member Knight

FEBRUARY 19, 2009

An act to amend Section 12050 of the Penal Code, relating to
firearms.



LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 357, as introduced, Knight. Firearms: license to carry
concealed firearm.
Existing law authorizes the sheriff of a county, upon proof that
the person applying is of good moral character, that good cause
exists, and that the person applying satisfies any one of certain
conditions, as specified, to issue a license for the person to carry
a concealed handgun, as specified.
This bill would delete the good cause requirement, and require the
sheriff to issue the license if the other criteria described above
are met.
By imposing additional duties on local law enforcement agencies,
this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates
determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state,
reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these
statutory provisions.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: yes.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

SECTION 1. Section 12050 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
12050. (a) (1) (A) The sheriff of a county, upon proof that the
person applying is of good moral character , that good cause
exists for the issuance,
and that the person applying
satisfies any one of the conditions specified in subparagraph (D) and
has completed a course of training as described in subparagraph (E),
may shall issue to that person a
license to carry a pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of
being concealed upon the person in either one of the following
formats:
The Legislative Counsel's Digest is the summary of the bill prepared by someone not the author; it's meant to be a neutral statement.

There are three conventions in the typography.

When the bill is introduced, anything in 'normal' type is the law as it exists already; the point is to show how changes would fit into the existing text.

Where the text is reproduced in strikeout type, that text is in the law as it currently stands and would be deleted in this bill.
EXAMPLE
text that looks like this is something that is in the law but that the current version of the bill would eliminate or change
Where text is reproduced in italic type, that text is new, and would be added by the bill.
EXAMPLE
Italic text is NEW STUFF added to the law or added to the previous version of the law as printed in the bill
The tricky thing here is that once there are amendments, that strikeout/italic convention refers to the previous version of the bill. The first set of strikeout parts will be gone, the first set of italic will be normal text, and only the amended text will be in strikeout/italic form.

Now, look at a bill that has made it all the way through to be law - SB 23

This bill page has sections for Analyses of the bill, prepared for each version/amendment. Those can be entertaining.

It has a section for Votes, in committee and for the whole House.

And it has two major status lines:
Enrolled means it passed both houses of the Legislature and was sent to the Governor.

Chaptered means the Governor signed it (or it went into effect without his signature), and it's law as of the effective date of the bill or the following January 1, if no 'urgency' specified a date.

Keeping up
 
There is a Bill Index - one for each house. All it has is Author/Bill Number/Topic.

Later on there will be a Table of Sections Affected but the one available 1/10/11 is from last session. That will indicate what sections will be changed; until the new numbering is implemented, most things of interest to Calgunners change something in the range 12000 - 12999
New Numbering in general:
PART 6. CONTROL OF DEADLY WEAPONS
TITLE 1. PRELIMINARY PROVISIONS
DIVISION 1. GENERAL PROVISIONS
16000. This act recodifies the provisions of former Title 2
(commencing with Section 12000) of Part 4, which was entitled
"Control of Deadly Weapons." The act shall be known and may be cited
as the "Deadly Weapons Recodification Act of 2010."

TITLE 2. WEAPONS GENERALLY
DIVISION 1. MISCELLANEOUS RULES RELATING TO WEAPONS GENERALLY
17500. Every person having upon the person any deadly weapon,
with intent to assault another, is guilty of a misdemeanor.

TITLE 3. WEAPONS AND DEVICES OTHER THAN FIREARMS
DIVISION 1. BB DEVICES
19910. Every person who sells any BB device to a minor is guilty
of a misdemeanor.

TITLE 4. FIREARMS
DIVISION 1. PRELIMINARY PROVISIONS
23500. The provisions listed in Section 16580 shall be known and
may be cited as "The Dangerous Weapons Control Law."
etc, etc.
Once you have the bill number, you can go to the legislative site -- http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/bilinfo.html -- and enter the number into the search box to get the Bill Page.

With the 2011 session, the HTML version of table of Sections has links to the bills, so one may go directly to the bill page and read the current text and bill status information

That gives you the history.

To keep a little ahead of things, you need to read the Daily Files. They're only published as .PDFs.

Update 4/25/2011 - Senate daily file is at http://senate.ca.gov/dailyfile, still has a .PDF version

The Legislative Portal, where the Daily File link takes you, also has links to
For as little as they seem to want to listen to us, they do offer a lot of ways for us to see what they want us to see ! :)

Thanks Librarian. It's nice to have those links for those of us new to the game.

A look at the structure of California Codes
 
There are numerous places one can find California Codes on-line. The 'official' place is http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/calaw.html.

That one is hard to search; other easily found places are http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/cacode/ and
http://law.onecle.com/california/

Looking there, one sees that there are many separate bodies of law, grouped primarily by general topic, called 'codes'.

Gun laws are mostly in Penal Code, but other laws affecting guns and gun owners are in Health and Safety Code, Government Code, Fish and Game Code.

Using the Penal Code as an example, it has some miscellaneous sections and then 'parts' (Note that this is from Findlaw, which does not yet have the renumbered PC that goes into effect in 2012):
Quote:

Part 1 OF CRIMES AND PUNISHMENTS [25. - 680.]
Part 2 OF CRIMINAL PROCEDURE PRELIMINARY PROVISIONS [681. - 1620.]
Part 3 OF IMPRISONMENT AND THE DEATH PENALTY [2000. - 10007.]
Part 4 PREVENTION OF CRIMES AND APPREHENSION OF CRIMINALS [11006. - 14315.]
Part 5 PEACE OFFICERS' MEMORIAL [15001. - 15003.]
Inside 'parts' are 'titles':
Quote:

Title 1 INVESTIGATION AND CONTROL OF CRIMES AND CRIMINALS [11006. - 11460.]
Title 1.5 STATEWIDE PROGRAMS OF EDUCATION, TRAINING, AND RESEARCH FOR LOCAL PUBLIC PROSECUTORS AND PUBLIC DEFENDERS [11500. - 11504.]
Title 2 CONTROL OF DEADLY WEAPONS [12000. - 12809.]
Title 3 CRIMINAL STATISTICS [13000. - 13326.]
Title 4 STANDARDS AND TRAINING OF LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS [13500. - 13553.]
Title 4.5 CORRECTIONS STANDARDS AUTHORITY [13600. - 13603.]
Title 5 LAW ENFORCEMENT RESPONSE TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE [13700. - 13732.]
Title 5.7 REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS LAW ENFORCEMENT ACT [13775. - 13779.]
Title 6 CALIFORNIA COUNCIL ON CRIMINAL JUSTICE [13800. - 13897.3.]
Title 6.5 LOCAL CRIMINAL JUSTICE PLANNING [13900. - 13980.]
Title 6.7: CALIFORNIA ALLIANCE TO COMBAT TRAFFICKING AND SLAVERY (CALIFORNIA ACTS) TASK FORCE [ - ]
Title 7.5 THE HERTZBERG-LESLIE WITNESS PROTECTION ACT [14020. - 14033.]
Title 8 BUILDING SECURITY [14051. - 14051.]
Title 10 COMMUNITY VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION [14110. - 14121.]
Title 10.5 VIOLENT CRIMES AGAINST WOMEN [14140. - 14143.]
Title 10.6 COMMUNITY CONFLICT RESOLUTION PROGRAMS [14150. - 14156.]
Title 11 RECORDS AND REPORTS OF MONETARY INSTRUMENT TRANSACTIONS [14160. - 14167.]
Title 11.5 CENTRAL VALLEY RURAL CRIME PREVENTION PROGRAM [14170. - 14175.]
Title 11.7 CENTRAL COAST RURAL CRIME PREVENTION PROGRAM [14180. - 14183.]
Title 12 VIOLENT CRIME INFORMATION CENTER [14200. - 14213.]
Title 12.5 DNA [14250. - 14251.]
Title 13 LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL ENFORCEMENT AND TRAINING PROGRAMS [14300. - 14315.]
Inside 'titles' are 'Chapters':
Quote:

Chapter 1 Firearms [12000. - 12101.]
Chapter 1.3 Unsafe Handguns [12125. - 12133.]
Chapter 2 Machine Guns [12200. - 12251.]
Chapter 2.3 Roberti-Roos Assault Weapons Control Act of 1989 [12275. - 12290.]
Chapter 2.5 Destructive Devices [12301. - 12316.]
Chapter 2.6 Ammunition [12320. - 12325.]
Chapter 3.2 Boobytraps [12355. - 12355.]
Chapter 3.5 Body Armour Certification [12360. - 12370.]
Chapter 4 Tear Gas Weapons [12401. - 12426.]
Chapter 5 Firearm Devices [12500. - 12520.]
Chapter 6 Miscellaneous [12550. - 12809.]
Inside 'chapters' are 'articles':
Quote:

Article 1 General Provisions [12000. - 12003.]
Article 1.5 Prohibited Armed Persons File [12010. - 12012.]
Article 2 Unlawful Carrying and Possession of Weapons [12020. - 12040.]
Article 3 Licenses to Carry Pistols and Revolvers [12050. - 12054.]
Article 4 Licenses to Sell Firearms [12070. - 12086.]
Article 4.5 Firearms Safety Devices [12087. - 12088.9.]
Article 5 Obliteration of Identification Marks [12090. - 12094.]
Article 6 Permits [12095. - 12099.]
Article 7 Juveniles [12101. - 12101.]
Inside 'articles' are 'sections':
Quote:

Section 12020
Section 12020.1
Section 12020.3
Section 12020.5
Section 12021
... etc
and these have 'sub-sections', marked by lower-case letters, such as '(a)'

No one uses it this way (except for a few bills) but PC 12020(a) is fully specified as
Penal Code, Part 4, Title 2, Chapter 1, Article 2, Section 12020, subsection (a).
That full specification is not usually needed because the codes do not re-use section numbers within a single code.

Sept 2011

Governor Brown chooses to announce the bills he signs or vetoes on this web page
http://gov.ca.gov/m_newsroom.php in documents titled 'Legislative Update'.

h/t CaliforniaLiberal

Librarian 02-26-2012 6:05 PM

The Senate and Assembly have updated their web pages.

Committee info for the Senate is at http://senate.ca.gov/committees

Public Safety
JURISDICTION: Bills amending the following: a) Evidence Code, relating to criminal procedure. b) Penal Code. c) Statutes of a penal nature not related closely to a subject included in another subdivision of this rule. d) Bills relating to the Youth and Adult Corrections Agency.

Appropriations
JURISDICTION: Bills that are subject to Joint Rule 10.5 and are not referred to the Budget and Fiscal Review Committee. Bills that constitute a state-mandated local program.


Committee info for the Assembly is at http://assembly.ca.gov/committees

Public Safety
Committee Jurisdiction: Primary jurisdiction is the California Penal Code.

Appropriations
Committee Jurisdiction: Primary jurisdiction is fiscal bills, including bonds and alternative public financing.
Appropriations is a step a bill must pass through if there are any fiscal - $$ - effects. Usually they don't care about content otherwise.

It's important to refer to the current page for a committee to get contact information - membership changes sometimes during the session.

Librarian 03-01-2012 11:20 PM

And, there is a new site for legislative information:

http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/home.xhtml

It has links to a bill-search page, and to the California Codes, and to the hearings schedules and floor schedules - pretty nice!

Librarian 10-20-2012 5:01 PM

Reading a bill in the new format (Update 1/18/2013)

Here's the new website for bills: http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/fa...chClient.xhtml

Let's pick on AB48 of 2013, http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/fa...=201320140AB48

(Note you can construct your own link - "http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=" is fixed, "201320140AB48" is 2013 2014 0 AB48, that is, first year of session, second year of session, perhaps a 'filler' 0, and the bill number.)

Just Section 1 has enough text to show the formatting.
The people of the State of California do enact as follows:

SECTION 1.
Section 16740 of the Penal Code is amended to read:

16740. (a) As used in this part, “large-capacity magazine” means any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds, including
OLD text, already in the Penal Code, is plain text, black.

This shows NEW text in BLUE ITALIC..


, but shall not be construed limited to include any of the following:, a readily restorable disassembled large-capacity magazine and an oversize magazine body that appears to hold ....
This shows DELETED text as RED STRIKEOUT.
