    AB 227 (Gatto D)   Proposition 65: enforcement: chemical listing.    
       
      Summary: Would allow a person who receives a notice that alleges the person is in violation of the warning requirements of Proposition 65 to correct the violation within 14 days after receiving that notice and demonstrate to the Attorney General, the city attorney, or the district attorney in whose jurisdiction the notice is filed that the violation has been corrected. The bill would impose a state-mandated local program by imposing new duties upon local agencies with regard to concurring in that correction of a violation. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.

     

    AB 637 (Torres D)   Common interest developments.    
       
      Summary: Would provide that, unless otherwise provided in the declaration of a common interest development, an association association of the common interest development is responsible for maintaining, repairing, and replacing the common area, the owner of each separate interest is responsible for maintaining, repairing, and replacing the separate interest, and the owner of the separate interest is responsible for maintaining the exclusive use common area appurtenant to the separate interest while the association is responsible for repairing and replacing this area.

     

    AB 645 (Torres D)   Dwelling safety: smoke detectors.    
       
      Summary: Current law, commencing January 1, 2014, requires a smoke alarm to have certain features, including a feature that provides notice that the device needs to be replaced, in order to be approved and listed by the State Fire Marshal. This bill would delete this requirement and would extend to January 1, 2015, the date by which smoke detectors need to have certain features to be approved and listed. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.

     

    AB 746 (Levine D)   Smoking: prohibition in multifamily dwellings.    
       
      Summary: Would prohibit the smoking of a cigarette or other tobacco products in all areas of multifamily dwellings, except those areas designated as areas where smoking is permitted, as specified. This bill would define, for the purposes of these provisions, multifamily dwellings to mean residential property containing 2 or more units with one or more shared walls, floors, ceilings, or ventilation systems. This bill would provide that any person who violates the requirements of the bill is guilty of an infraction. By creating a new crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.

     

    SB 752 (Roth D)   Commercial and industrial common interest developments.
      Summary: The Davis-Stirling Common Interest Development Act provides for the creation and regulation of common interest developments, as defined, but exempts common interest developments that are limited to industrial or commercial uses from specified provisions of the act. This bill would establish the Commercial and Industrial Common Interest Development Act, which would provide for the creation and regulation of commercial and industrial common interest developments. The bill would make various conforming changes.
    AB 893 (Daly D)   Sales and use taxes: lease: definition.    
       
      Summary: The Sales and Use Tax Law defines a “lease” for purposes of application of that law. This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to that definition.

     

    AB 968 (Gordon D)   Common interest developments: elections.    
       
      Summary: The Davis-Stirling Common Interest Development Act governs the management and operation of common interest developments. These provisions require that a common interest development be managed by an association and that elections related to the governance or administration of the common interest development conform to specified requirements. This bill would, notwithstanding the election requirements referenced above, authorize a common interest development with not more than 6 separate interests to conduct an election of directors pursuant to other specified requirements.
    AB 969 (Ammiano D)   Landlord and tenant.
