No. 2229


Introduced by Assembly Member Flora

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2229, as introduced, Flora. Drug- or alcohol-related programs: “no unlawful use” requirement.
Existing law prohibits state funds from being encumbered by a state agency for allocation to an entity, whether public or private, for a drug- or alcohol-related program, unless the drug- or alcohol-related program contains a component that clearly explains, in written materials, that there shall be no unlawful use of drugs or alcohol. Existing law prohibits these programs from including a message on the responsible use, if the use is unlawful, of drugs or alcohol.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
