Some bill research does not include the Governor's file because at the time we researched the bill, the sitting Governor had not released his chaptered bill file. If the Governor's file is not included with this particular research, please contact our office (1-800-666-1917 or email@example.com) and we will be happy to provide this file at no charge if it is available.
As enacted, Assembly Bill 1822 affected numerous sections of the Financial Code, Government Code, Health and Safety Code, Penal Code, Public Resources Code, and the Welfare and Institutions Code, relating to administrative rulemaking. (See Exhibit #1g) Assembly member Howard Wayne introduced Assembly Bill 1822 on February 3, 2000 at the request of the California Law Revision Commission. (See Exhibits #1a and #10b)

(See Exhibits #3 and #7) The fiscal ramifications of the bill were considered by the Assembly Committee on Appropriations and the Senate Committee on Appropriations.

The Third Reading analysis prepared by the Office of Senate Floor Analyses summarizes the provisions of Assembly Bill 1822 just prior to enactment stating that the bill “modifies the Administrative procedures Act to clarify state rulemaking provisions, as specified.” (See Exhibit #10b, page 1) This analysis then provides a more detailed analysis of the different provisions of the bill.
