The California Law Revision Commission was created in 1953 through Chapter 1445 as a successor to the California Code Commission
(1929-1953). The commission consists of one Senator, one Assembly Member, Legislative Counsel and seven members appointed
by the Governor and with the approval of the Senate. The Legislative Counsel is an ex officio member of the Commission.
