LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

AB 1648, Assembly Member Wilk. State publications: distribution.

Existing law requires the distribution of state publications, as defined, to specific libraries and depositories, and establishes the policy of the state to make freely available all state publications.

This bill would modify the definition of “state publication” to specify that publications issued by the state on the Internet are included within its meaning. The bill would authorize a member of the public, as defined, to copy, share, distribute, or republish a state publication authored by the state.

Vote Required: majority Appropriation: no Fiscal Committee: yes Local Program: no

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

SECTION 1. Section 14900.5 is added to the Government Code, to read:
14900.5.

A member of the public, as defined by Section 6252, may copy, share, distribute, or republish a state publication authored by the state.

SEC. 2. Section 14902 of the Government Code is amended to read:
14902.

“State publication” or “publication” as herein employed is defined to include any document, compilation, journal, law, resolution, Blue Book, statute, code, register, pamphlet, list, book, report, memorandum, hearing, legislative bill, leaflet, order, regulation, directory, periodical, or magazine issued by the state, the Legislature, constitutional officers, or any department, commission, or other agency thereof, or prepared for the state by private individual or organization and issued on the Internet or in print, and “print” is defined to include all forms of duplicating other than by the use of carbon paper.
