October 1996
At my direction, the staff to the Senate Committee on Criminal Procedure has prepared this summary of bills sent to the Governor in 1996 pertaining to the committee’s subject-matter jurisdiction. It is my hope that this compilation of crime legislation will facilitate access to the new laws which were enacted this year. Most of the new laws will take effect on January 1, 1997.

Measures vetoed by the Governor are included to note the disparate view on some issues between the Legislature and the Governor. Moreover, most vetoed bills are reintroduced in one form or another in subsequent years.

The Senate Committee on Criminal Procedure existed for the first time this session. We considered the largest number of bills of any Senate policy committee. That workload is a reflection of the continuing interest and concern about crime in California.

All of the measures included in this summary are available from a variety of sources. Single copies of chaptered bills may be requested at no cost from the Legislative Bill Room, State Capitol, Room B-32, Sacramento, CA 95814. Their phone number is (916) 445-2323. Copies of vetoed bills are available until February, 1997.

I hope this legislative summary is useful to you as you prepare for 1997.
