Provides Commissioner as its successor, who is elected every four years at the same time as the Governor and is an inactive member of the State Bar. Specifies salary of commissioner. Requires every active member of the State Bar to be reexamined every four years. Provides permanent retention of disciplinary records resulting in suspension or disbarment as public records. Makes conviction for professional misconduct cause for suspension or disbarment. Provides contingency fee contracts for recovery of Workers' Compensation benefits within contingency fee limitations. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would result in marginal increased costs to local governments for the preparation and processing of election materials. The reexamination of active State Bar members would not result in significant costs.
