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 (1-530-666-1917 or quote@legintent.com) and we will be happy to provide this file at no charge if it is available. Please Note: Governor files did not exist prior to 1943.

The Office of Legislative Counsel prepared a Report on Assembly Bill 1227 for the Governor which summarizes the measure as follows:

Amends Sec. 51, Civ. C., re civil rights.

Provides that all persons, rather than citizens, within the jurisdiction of the State are free and equal and entitled, regardless of race, color, religion, ancestry, or national origin, to the full and equal accommodations, advantages, facilities, privileges, or services in all business establishments of every kind whatsoever.
(See Exhibit #4, document PE-4)

An Enrolled Bill Memorandum prepared for the Governor by his Legislative Secretary comments on the changes proposed by Assembly Bill 1227 as follows:

Assemblyman Burton, the author, states that the purpose of the bill was to make it clear that all persons, aliens as well as citizens, were entitled to the privileges of the act. The Attorney Generalĺs Office advises that the coverage of the act will be broadened by this amendment and recommends approval.
