An act to amend Section 103425 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to vital records.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 741, as introduced, Galgiani. Change of gender.
Existing law, operative September 1, 2018, authorizes a person to file a petition with the superior court in any county seeking a judgment recognizing the change of gender to female, male, or nonbinary. The judgment, upon request, is required to include an order that a new birth certificate be prepared for the person reflecting the change of gender and any change of name that was ordered in specified jurisdictions.
This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to delete the outdated operative date.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.
