[greenyes] California SB23

It appears that something very wierd has happened to California's SB23 as
it works its way through our legislature. SB23 was a bill to increase the
CRV (deposit) amount on beverage containers. Unless the legislative web
page is in serious error, it appears that the bill was "amended" yesterday
to remove ALL the previous language and substitute entirely new language
relating to the Office of Criminal Justice Planning. When I saw that the
assembly committee analysis of this bill posted on 5/12 was all about
criminal justice and nothing about beverage containers, I thought the
wrong text had been posted by mistake. But today I see the criminal
justice stuff in the amended version of the bill posted yesterday.

Does anybody on this list know anything about this? How can a bill be
"amended" by deleting all previous language and inserting a completely new
bill on a completely different subject?
