Assembly Bill 857, as it passed the Assembly, required that no less than 50% or $100,000,000, whichever is greater of the moneys appropriated for technology development, demonstration, precommercial pilots, and early commercial deployments of zero- and near-zero-emission medium- and heavy-duty truck technology be allocated to support the commercial deployment of existing zero- and near-zero-emission heavy-duty truck technology that meets or exceeds a specified emission standard.
The Senate amendments delete those provisions and instead, commencing July 1, 2018, and subject to exceptions, require a person who manufactures or assembles a firearm to first apply to the Department of Justice for a unique serial number or other identifying mark, as provided. The Senate amendments also require, by January 1, 2019, and subject to exceptions, require a person who, as of July 1, 2018, owns a firearm that does not bear a serial number to likewise apply to the department for a unique serial number or other mark of identification. The Senate amendments, except as provided, prohibit the sale or transfer of ownership of a firearm manufactured or assembled pursuant to these provisions. The Senate amendments also prohibit a person from aiding in the manufacture or assembly of a firearm by a person who is prohibited from possessing a firearm. The Senate amendments make a violation of these provisions a misdemeanor.
The Senate amendments also require the department to issue a serial number or other identifying mark to an applicant meeting specified criteria and allow the department to charge a fee to recover its costs associated with assigning a distinguishing number or mark pursuant to the above provisions.
