Vetoed legislation allowing California State Bar to impose fines for unauthorized practice of law is quietly revived

The ABA is reporting today that legislation allowing the California State Bar to levy fines for unauthorized practice of law has been proposed again after having been vetoed last year.  According to the story, earlier this month, the same legislative proposal "was quietly slipped into another bill that had been stripped of its original content, which let it skip the committee markup process just before an 11-day break for the legislature, the Sacramento Bee reports."
