First select the code from the drop down menu, then enter the section number you wish to read. You can click on the tab "text search" to enter keywords. This new site offers new features including the "Today's Law as Amended" feature that allows the user to compare the current law with proposed legislation at various phases of amendments.

California Legislation http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov  Database that goes back to 1999-2000.
