AB 1599, as amended, Kiley. Proposition 47: repeal. January 3, 2022

Bill Text

Bill History


AB 1599  revises Proposition 47, The Safe Neighborhoods and School Act, which was approved November 14, 2014. The following quote is from the bill:


"Existing law defines grand theft as the wrongful taking of money, labor, or property of a value exceeding $950, except as specified. Existing law also makes it grand theft where the money, labor, or real or personal property is taken by a servant, agent, or employee from their principal or employer and aggregates $950 or more in any consecutive 12-month period.

This bill would reduce the value threshold for committing grand theft under those provisions from $950 to $400.

This bill would provide that it would become effective only upon approval of the voters, and would provide for the submission of this measure to the voters for approval at the next statewide general election."

Comments: Support

This is a commonsense proposal that deserves the support of California citizens. Stealing is grossly wrong and should be discouraged by strong penalties.
