INTRODUCED BY   Senator Gaines

   An act to amend Section 70 of the Education Code, relating to
elementary and secondary education.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 264, as introduced, Gaines. Elementary and secondary education:
definitions.
   Existing law establishes the Education Code. Existing law sets
forth general provisions, rules of construction, and definitions that
govern the construction of the code. For purposes of the code,
existing law defines "writing" to include any form of recorded
message capable of comprehension by ordinary visual means. For
purposes of the code, existing law requires a notice, report,
statement, or record that is required or authorized by the code to be
made in writing in the English language, unless it is expressly
provided otherwise. For purposes of the code, existing law deems the
mailing of a notice or other communication by certified mail to be
sufficient compliance with a requirement of law in the code that a
notice or other communication is to be mailed by registered mail by
or to a person or corporation.
   This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.


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

  SECTION 1.  Section 70 of the Education Code is amended to read:
   70.   (a)    Writing includes any form of
recorded message capable of comprehension by ordinary visual means.
 Whenever any   If a  notice, report,
statement, or record is required or authorized by this code, it shall
be made in writing in the English language unless it is expressly
provided otherwise. 
   Wherever any 
    (b)     If a  notice or other
communication is required by this code to be mailed by registered
mail by or to  any   a  person or
corporation, the mailing of  such   the 
notice or other communication by certified mail shall be deemed to be
 a  sufficient compliance with the requirements of
law.
