Chapter 1125, Statutes of 1982 - AB 1363

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 quote@legintent.com) and we will be happy to provide this file at no charge if it is available.

As enacted Assembly Bill 1363 affected several Education Code sections, Government Code sections, and Insurance Code sections relating to state employment.  (See Exhibit #1i) Assembly member Elder introduced the bill on March 23, 1981 at the request of the Department of Personnel Administration.  (See Exhibits #1a and #11, page 2)

Assembly Bill 1363 was assigned to the Assembly Committee on Public Employment and Retirement and the Senate Committee on Public Employment and Retirement where policy issues raised by the bill were considered.  (See Exhibits #3 and #7)  The fiscal ramifications of the bill were considered by the Assembly Committee on Ways and Means and the Senate Committee on Finance.  (See Exhibits #2 and #4)  Six amendments were made to Assembly Bill 1363.  (See Exhibits #1b through #1g and #2)  When Assembly Bill 1363 was returned to the Assembly, the Senate's amendments were reviewed and rejected.  Consequently, Assembly Bill 1363 was assigned to a Conference Committee.  (See Exhibit #2)

The purpose of a Conference Committee is to bring together six legislators, three from each House, in an attempt to reach a compromise on a bill's language which is acceptable to both Houses.  The Conference Committee made amendments to Assembly Bill 1363 in a conference report dated August 10, 1982 which were accepted by the Legislature.  (See Exhibits #1h and #2)  Assembly Bill 1363 was thereafter approved by Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr., and was recorded by the Secretary of State as Chapter 1125 of the Statutes of 1982.  (See Exhibits #1i and #2)

Assembly Bill 1363 contained an urgency clause which caused the bill to go into immediate effect.  The reason for this urgency can be found in section 11 of Chapter 1125.

The Enrolled Bill Memorandum to Governor provides the following digest of Assembly Bill 1363:
