          Original Committee Reference:  A. & A.R.


          SUMMARY:  Allows the Department of General Services (DGS) to  
          engage in a pilot printing program that could be funded by a  
          participating vendor. 


          The Senate amendments: 


          1)Broaden the type of pilot printing program allowed.


          2)Allow, but do not require, the participating vendor to cover  
            pilot costs.


          EXISTING LAW requires the Office of State Printing (OSP), under  
          DGS to conduct all state printing and generally provides OSP  
          with discretion to determine appropriate printing methods.

                                                                    Page  2




          FISCAL EFFECT:  This bill, as amended, has not been analyzed by  
          a Senate fiscal committee. 


          COMMENTS:  Senate amendments broaden the type of printing pilot  
          allowed to include those that use sustainable printing  
          practices.  The previous version of this bill specified that the  
          pilot could be for the process free printing plates method only.  
           Amendments allow for this method or other sustainable  
          practices.


          Senate amendments also allow, but do not require, the  
          participating vendor to pay pilot costs.  The previous version  
          of the bill required the vendor to cover these costs.
