Subject: California Gutted Bill Example

Hi All,
In California, each legislator has a limited amount of bills they may introduce each session and there is a deadline for bill introduction. As a result, all legislators use up their allotment by the bill introduction deadline in late February and will often later sacrifice a bill in order to tackle a higher priority subject. In this case, an existing bill is "gutted". It's content, in its entirety is replaced with all new content usually addressing a subject unrelated to the original subject.
In this case, the manner in which a bill is shown as "gutted" can be quite intricate - and the redlining rules are cumbersome. In addition, rather than showing the entire prior version of the bill stricken out, a JR11 note is added to the bottom of the bill.
In the example I have included, you can see a gutted bill. You will see that the is a note in a box that points the reader to the prior version of the bill before it was gutted.
