INTRODUCED BY Senator Lieu

An act to amend Section 7153 of the Labor Code, relating to
occupational safety.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 923, as introduced, Lieu. Occupational safety: scaffolding.

This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to the above
provisions.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.


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