The committee originally consisted of eight members and hears bills relating to "the Evidence Code, pertaining to criminal procedure, the Penal Code, statutes of a penal nature not related closely to a subject included in another subdivision of this rule, and bills relating to the Youth and Adult Corrections Agency" (California Legislature at Sacramento, 1997, p104).
